Faculty Shine in Biennial Show at Gallery

Faculty members from the Department of Art and Art History will have work showcased over the next several weeks in The Gallery at UTA.

Work from 27 faculty members of the Department of Art & Art History will be included in "Faculty Biennial XIII," which runs Monday through Nov. 19 at The Gallery at UTA. ABOVE: Detail from "Natura Morta" by Stephen Lapthisophon. TOP: A close-up of "I'm Pressing On" by Sedrick Huckaby.

The exhibition, “Faculty Biennial XIII,” opens Monday, runs through Nov. 19, and features work from 27 faculty members – just a sampling of what the art professors accomplish in their creative endeavors outside the classroom, officials said.

“The ‘Faculty Biennial XIII’ is an opportunity for our talented faculty to experiment with new ideas and creatively investigate new modes of expression,” said gallery director Benito Huerta. “This year’s show has a quieter, more contemplative atmosphere than usual; and I think our visitors will enjoy seeing what the faculty are doing.”

The collection includes a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, glass, video, digital imaging and visual communication. In addition, the department’s art historians have examples of recent publications on display.

Several of the participating artists will discuss their work in a noontime talk No. 3, 9, and 11 at the gallery.

The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon-5 p.m. Saturday. The gallery is in the Fine Arts Building, room 169, 502 S. Cooper Street, Arlington, TX. For more information, contact Benito Huerta or Patricia Healy (817) 272-5658 or visit www.uta.edu/gallery.

The 2011-12 exhibition schedule is made possible by the generous support of Arlington Camera, the Hanley Foundation, Hilton Arlington and the National Endowment for the Arts.
