(June 3, 2011)--The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will present the painting and sculpture exhibit "Margins" from June 15 to Aug. 5 in the UTSA Arts Building gallery on the Main Campus. The exhibition represents views of the idea of abstraction through the use of a range of materials, forms and colors.

The exhibit features the work of artists Nate Cassie, Joseph Cohen, Larry Graeber, Tom Hollenback, Cornelia White Swann and Robert Tiemann. Larry Graeber curated the exhibit.

>> Free and open to the public, an opening reception is 6-8 p.m., Wednesday, June 15. Free parking will be available in lot 8 during the opening reception. Lot 8 is south of the Arts Building and accessible from James Bauerle Boulevard.

The exhibition presents new works that examine materials, form and color, avoiding preconceived ideas of what shape or color suggests in existing artifacts of the world around the artist. The artists explore a range of conceptual strategies and art-making methods to produce paintings and sculptures that show their engagement in the world.

The art works result from slow and fast flows of pigment to investigations of relatively hard-edged, gridded structures and industrial materials. The beautiful colors and forms transport viewers to evocative realms.

Gallery hours for the summer are 10 a.m.-1 p.m., and by appointment. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Laura Crist at 210-458-4391.

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
