(Aug. 19, 2013) -- Gallery 23 at the UTSA University Center presents "Forty: A Collection of Small Gestures," an exhibition of acrylic and watercolor paintings on paper from UTSA alumna Cornelia White Swann. Free and open to the public, the exhibit at the UTSA Main Campus runs Aug. 19-Oct. 25.
>> Guests can meet the artist at a gallery reception from 3 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 11.
"This curiosity evolved with my observations of the urban landscape, the strong architectural lines of a building existing with the organic forms of clouds passing behind it, or the desire paths left by pedestrians seeking the route of least resistance," said Swann. "I'm inspired by psychogeographic theories, the power of color, and the poetics of time and space.
Swann received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin and her Master of Fine Arts degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio. Her works have been included in exhibitions at Ad Hoc Art in Brooklyn, N.Y.; Women and Their Work in Austin, Texas; McDonough Museum of Art in Youngstown, Ohio; Laredo Center for the Arts in Laredo, Texas; and UTSA Satellite Space, cactus bra SPACE and Joan Grona Contemporary Art Gallery in San Antonio. She currently lives and works in San Antonio.
Gallery 23 serves a vital role in creating a vibrant campus community by offering cultural enrichment, enhancing diversity on campus, and providing an educational opportunity to explore the arts. The gallery serves as a professional space to showcase student, staff, faculty, alumni and local artists' works.
Taking its name from its room number, University Center Room 1.02.23, the gallery is a service of the UTSA University Center, an organization in the Office of Student Life in the Division of Student Affairs. Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday.
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.
Did you know? Sandhu, a world-renowned cybersecurity expert, holds 30 patents, has authored more than 250 papers and been cited more than 30,000 times.
