(May 6, 2010)--The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will present two M.F.A. thesis exhibitions, "Absent Tactical Re-Actions" by Aaron Munoz and "Clear Expensive Skies" by Adam Nowakowski, May 6-23 at the UTSA Satellite Space. Free and open to the public, the exhibits mark the culmination of the students' academic work at UTSA in fulfillment of requirements for the master of fine arts degree.

>> An opening reception is 6-9 p.m., Thursday, May 6. The gallery also will be open 6-9 p.m., May 7 for First Friday, the monthly gallery open house in San Antonio's Southtown district.

The work of Aaron Munoz incorporates an ironic and sarcastic social commentary on the evolution of technology, science and how humans put them to use. Through his paintings he explores the idea of security and safety, constructing images that throw light on easily attainable modern technology invented for consumption and protection but used for destruction.

Munoz explores treatment of paint by colliding flat shapes and washes of color with mechanical lines and photographic images. He works with an array of media using many kinds of paint, India inks and screen-printing inks, combining painting and screen printing to construct his work. He received his B.F.A. in photography in 2006 from Texas State University in San Marcos and will receive his UTSA M.F.A. degree in painting.

Originally from Mystic, Conn., Adam Nowakowski explores issues of personal identity, socio-geopolitical iconography, tradition and myth in this exhibit, an installation of sculpture and wall paintings. Upon arrival in San Antonio, Nowakowski's work began to change drastically from large-scale figurative oil paintings on canvas to a mix of printmaking, audio, sculpture and painting. Nowakowski earned his undergraduate degree at The Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Conn.
