The Gallery at UTA, The University of Texas at Arlington, is pleased to present its fifteenth Faculty Biennial, a showcase of 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. This year, to honor and commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the College of Liberal Art, the exhibition also includes alumni selected by each faculty member to exhibit alongside their former teachers. This special reunion show will take place in two venues: The Gallery at UTA in the Fine Arts Building, and Gallery West in the Davis Street Studio Art Center. The concurrent exhibitions feature 35 faculty members and 26 invited art graduates showing diverse work in a variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, glass, printmaking, film/video, digital imaging and visual communication. In addition, the department's art historians and their invitees have examples of recent publications on display.
"The Faculty Biennial is always an opportunity for our talented faculty to experiment with new ideas and creatively investigate new modes of expression. This unique exhibition this year marks the first time invited alumni are exhibiting alongside their professors as practicing artists, and it gives us a glimpse of what our alumni are doing in the professional world." said gallery curator and director, Benito Huerta.
