(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.
Directions: From Interstate 10, take exit 557 to UTSA Boulevard and go west. At the second traffic light, turn right onto Bauerle Road, turn immediately left onto Ford Drive, and then take an immediate right into lot BR1.

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.
