ARLINGTON - The Arlington Museum of Art will feature an exhibit of photography by University of Texas at Arlington students and faculty, who recently studied in Florence, Italy. The exhibit opens Saturday, Sept. 19, and there will be an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25. The museum, 201 W. Main. St, is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Undergraduate and graduate students studied this summer at the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, under the direction of Kenda North, a photography professor at UT Arlington. The exhibit will include photographs, large-scale prints and self-published books in the main gallery of the museum. 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," North said.
The exhibition, the fifth one of student/faculty work in Italy held at the museum, closes Oct. 18.
In addition to North, participating artists are students Ashley E. Allen, Jesse Barnett, Kimberly Bell, Justin Bolle, Annie Donovan, Casey Kopecky, Erica Martinez, Katie Nixon, Amber Lea Taylor, Jenny Todd, Daniel Guiterrez and Laurie L. Ward.
Exhibition sponsors include Arlington Camera, Imaging Spectrum, Kar Lynn Arts, Red River Paper and the Department of Art and Art History at UT Arlington.
