ARLINGTON–The Gallery at The University of Texas at Arlington is presenting its thirteenth “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 2011 exhibition, which runs October 24 through November 19, features 27 faculty members working in 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.

“The Faculty Biennial XIII is an opportunity for our talented faculty to experiment with new ideas and creatively investigate new modes of expression. 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,” said gallery curator Benito Huerta.
