The Department of Art and Art History 2019 Faculty Biennial Exhibition reception, in the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art begins at 5 pm and runs through 7 pm.
The public is invited to come out for both receptions, meet the artists, enjoy free refreshments, and take in the latest creations by some of the most talented artists in the region. The Department of Art and Art History 2019 Faculty Biennial Exhibition runs September 5 through October 11. The Annual Graduate Student Exhibition runs September 5 and will close September 19.
New and returning faculty and graduate students will present art in a wide range of media and styles. The faculty show, which is only presented every two years, is a unique opportunity to see work by our faculty in their studio research. The graduate student show introduces the work of new students who have just begun work in the department’s master’s program, as well as the work of returning students working toward the master of fine arts degree. Work in ceramics, digital media, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture will be in both exhibitions.
Both galleries are adjacent to historic Woods Quad, where visitors will discover the art work of international and local artists in the Woods Quad Sculpture Garden.
Woods Quad is a five-minute walk from the Campus Drive Parking Deck and Bus Hub on Hackberry Lane. Information about visitor parking is available on the UA Parking Services website.
