(Aug. 30, 2013) -- The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will present the exhibit "What Is Important" from Sept. 4 to Oct. 4 in the Arts Building Gallery on the Main Campus.
Curated by Scott Sherer, associate professor of art and art history, the show features the works of artists who document how life changes through objects and events in the past and present.
>> An opening reception, free and open to the public, will be 6-8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 4 at the gallery.
The exhibit features the work of Susan Mullally, Kurt Gohde, Kremena Todorova and Liz Maugans.
Susan Mullally's Waco project, "What I Keep, Portraits and Choices," is a collaboration with members of The Church Under the Bridge, a multicultural Christian church, whose members meet under the Interstate 35 bridge in Waco. Mullally asks individuals what they keep and why they keep it.
Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova collaborated on the Lexington, Ky. project, "Discarded," which includes images of discarded furniture and those who once owned it or those who live nearby. This exhibition features their work with collaborators in San Antonio.
In her series, "Desperate Signs and Signs of the Times," Liz Maugans of Cleveland, Ohio, considers popular sayings and examples of text used to re-sell objects by attracting "new owners." Maugans re-positions these objects and their unique histories for new audiences.
The gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday; 1-4 p.m., Saturday; and by appointment. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. The Arts Building Gallery is on the UTSA Main Campus, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, Texas 78249.
