Showing hundreds of these miniature versions at one time allows the viewer to see an encapsulated history of the progression of his work from 1997 to the present.

Falsetta, a Professor of Art, Drawing and Painting at the University of North Texas who has taught there since 1977, is a Philadelphia native and a Denton resident. His work has been exhibited in thirty-seven solo exhibitions around the country since 1972 and he has participated in over one hundred group exhibitions during that time. He is the recipient of several grants including a NEA Fellowship Award in 1996, and his work is included in many public and private collections.

Houston-based artist Casey Williams has been exhibiting his work since 1976. He has also received several awards for his work and is included in important collections such as the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

These images take on the appearance of abstract paintings when digitally printed at almost mural-size. In this way, his intriguing work shares an aesthetic quality with that of Falsetta's abstract paintings.

Curator Benito Huerta comments, "In this exhibition we are inverting the traditional notion of small-scale photographs and large-scale abstract paintings by showing these two talented artists whose work defies those traditions. I also want to point out the visual relationship between the two artists' work by showing them together."

In association with the exhibition, the artists will each give slide lectures about their work. Casey Williams will present his work on Thursday, October 17 at 12:30 PM and Vincent Falsetta will speak on Wednesday, November 6 at 12:30 PM. Both slide lectures take place in Room 148 of the Fine Arts Building on the UTA campus.

All events are free and open to the public. Please note that the opening reception is on a Thursday evening and the nearby Arlington Museum of Art will remain open until 8 PM that night.

Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 10 - 5 PM, Saturday 12 - 5 PM.
