“Made in Italy” exhibition at the Arlington Museum of Art, Arlington, Texas


The Arlington Museum of Art will feature an exhibit of photography by students and faculty from UT Arlington who studied in Florence, Italy this June. The exhibit will open Saturday, September 19th with an opening reception on Friday, September 25th from 6 to 9 pm. This summer undergraduate and graduate students studied under the direction of Kenda North, professor in photography at UTA, at the Santa Reparata International School of Art. The exhibit will include photographs, large scale prints and self-published books in the main gallery of the AMA. The photographs represent personal responses to living in Florence for a month, as well as trips to Venice, Lucca, Rome and Cinque Terre. These are images which challenge typical travel photography, both in concept and in presentation. Participating artists are Ashley E. Allen, Jesse Barnett, Kimberly Bell, Justin Bolle, Annie Donovan, Casey Kopecky, Erica Martinez, Katie Nixon, Amber Lea Taylor, Jenny Todd, Daniel Guiterrez, Laurie L. Ward and Kenda North (faculty). Exhibition sponsors include the Arlington Camera, Imaging Spectrum, Kar Lynn Arts, Red River Paper and the Department of Art and Art History at UT Arlington. This is the fifth exhibit of student/faculty work studying in Florence at the Santa Reparata International School of Art at the AMA. The exhibit closes October 18, 2009. The Arlington Museum of Art is located at 201 West Main Street. The Museum is open Wednesday through Friday from 1:00 to 5:00, Saturday from 10 to 5 and Sunday from noon to 5.
