(March 22, 2013) -- The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will host the 29th annual student exhibition through April 20 at the Arts Building Gallery on the Main Campus.
As the exhibit juror, Riley Robinson, artist and Artpace studio director, had the difficult task of selecting works from a competitive pool of creative projects produced by UTSA undergraduate and graduate students.
The art works represent all media, ranging from traditional techniques to new, interdisciplinary methods. Subjects include events and experiences in today’s social and cultural climate, investigations into aesthetic possibilities, and experiments with creative thought and practice.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and 1-4 p.m., Saturday 1-4. Viewings are available by appointment. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Laura Crist at 210-458-4391.

The Spring Research Conference offers graduate and undergraduate students pursuing majors in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts the opportunity to present their original work in a forum of interested and critically engaged minds that is at the same time welcoming and inclusive.
