(June 12, 2012) -- The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will present "New Art/Arte Nuevo: San Antonio 2012," a juried exhibition of the work of 19 artists who live, work or have roots/raíces in South Texas and West Texas.

>> Free and open to the public, the exhibition is in the UTSA Art Gallery in the Arts Building on the Main Campus and runs June 13-Aug. 10. Summer hours are 1-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, and by appointment. An opening reception is 6-8 p.m., Wednesday, June 13.

The artwork represents a diverse array of aesthetic interests and themes that range from representational imagery to abstract design and from cultural criticism to sublime expression in works that extend across the full range of traditional and new media.

This year's juror is Kate Bonansinga, director of the School of Art in the College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. She is the former director of the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at the University of Texas at El Paso. Bonansinga made selections from more than 500 works submitted by 135 artists. With a catalog available, the exhibit is the third installment of a biennial project.

Artists represented in the exhibit are Ricky Armendariz, Jill Bedgood, Angela Carbone, Sarah Castillo, Rodolfo Choperena, Madison Cowles, Francisco Delgado, Rebecca Dietz, Leslee Fraser, Michael Anthony García, Raul Gonzalez, Julia Barbosa Landois, Marilyn Lanfear, Benjamin H. McVey, Juan de Dios Mora, Lindsay Palmer, Efraín Salinas, Kasey Short and Lana Waldrep.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
