(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.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
