The UT Downtown Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Artist-in-Residence program at UT's School of Art. Begun after the retirement of painting professor Carl Sublett, the Artist-in-Residence Program enriches a student's experience further by regularly bringing new artists from outside the university who are active in the contemporary gallery and museum arenas. Each semester an invited resident artist teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses in the painting and drawing curriculum. The AIR program has been highly successful in making a direct connection to the marketplace of ideas that surrounds art centers such as New York City, Chicago, and LA. The artists we bring to campus represent a spectrum of current sensibilities in painting and drawing holding sway in the art world today.
This exhibition features work from past participating artists from the Ewing Gallery permanent collection.
Please join us Friday, December 6 from 5-9pm for an opening reception celebrating the program.
