Exhibition Dates: Aug. 27-Sept. 20, 2012 / Reception for the artists: Sept. 4, 4-6 pm

The exhibition features artwork by faculty members of TWU Department of Visual Arts and guest artists invited by the faculty. This biennial exhibition highlights the work of the TWU faculty, allowing students, the university, and the Dallas-Fort Worth-Denton arts communities see the compelling work being created and shown locally, nationally and internationally by the Visual Arts faculty members.
Each faculty member invited artists who they admire, have worked with on projects, or is a mentor to them to be a guest at this exhibition. The variety of work spans the gamut from traditional painting to experimental video and sculpture by the artists on display, and the show gives all visitors a broad view of the scope and variety of art being done by the faculty and guests at TWU, in the community and classrooms of the Department of Visual Arts.
