ARLINGTON - The 10th "Faculty Biennial," a showcase for recent work created by Department of Art and Art History faculty, is now on exhibit in the Gallery at the University of Texas at Arlington. The gallery is in Room 169 at the Fine Arts Building, 502 S. Cooper St. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon until 5 p.m. Saturday.
