Janet Morrow Awarded 1st Place in “897 Square” Exhibition


Janet Morrow, UTA MFA program alumna and lecturer, was awarded First Place by juror William Campbell of William Campbell Contemporary Art in the "897 Square" exhibition currently on display at Gallery 76102.

897 Square at Gallery 76102 is a juried competition, featuring 25 artists who live and/or work in Tarrant County. Charles Wylie, who is the Dallas Museum of Art’s Lupe Murchison Curator of Contemporary Art and has been at the DMA for fifteen years, selected the artists.

As the winner, she will receive a solo exhibition. That exhibition, entitled "Sweetie Pie," will open September 12, with opening reception from 6p-8p and run through the end of November. The show will consist primarily of works created from cast granulated sugar. 

The title, 897 Square, refers to the U.S. Census Bureau’s calculation that Tarrant County has a total area of 897 square miles. Gallery 76102 is the UT Arlington's Center Gallery. The mission of Gallery 76102 is to engage and support art community stakeholders in the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County through multiple community focused initiatives, such as the presentation of community artists who live and work in Tarrant County.
