From the Gallery at UTA
“The Gallery at UTA is pleased to present its eighteenth “Faculty Biennial,” a showcase for recent work created by faculty from the University of Texas at Arlington Department of Art and Art History. Scheduled every two years, this exhibition presents a sampling of what the art and design professors accomplish in their creative endeavors outside the classroom. The 2021 exhibition, which runs October 18 through November 20, features 31 faculty members working in a wide variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, glass, printmaking, cinematic arts, digital imaging, and design. In addition, the department’s art historians have examples of recent publications on display. “The Faculty Biennial is an opportunity for our talented faculty to experiment with new ideas and creatively investigate new modes of expression. I think our students and visitors will enjoy seeing what the faculty do in their studios,” says gallery curator and director Benito Huerta.
