ARLINGTON–The Gallery at The University of Texas at Arlington is pleased to present its sixteenth “Faculty Biennial,” a showcase for recent work created by the Department of Art and Art History faculty. Scheduled every two years, this exhibition presents a sampling of what the art professors accomplish in their creative endeavors outside the classroom. The 2017 exhibition, which runs October 16 through November 18, features 35 faculty members working in a wide variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, glass, printmaking, film/video, digital imaging and visual communication design. In addition, the department's art historians have examples of recent publications on display.

"The Faculty Biennial is an opportunity for our talented faculty to experiment with new ideas and creatively investigate new modes of expression. I think our students and visitors will enjoy seeing what the faculty do in their studios," says gallery curator and director Benito Huerta.
