Piedra y Espejo/The Stone and the Mirror
University of North Texas
August 19 through September 2, 2011
Lithographic prints from five students at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) will be on display at UNT as part of an exchange with UAEM. UNT sent an exhibition of ceramics by students and faculty members to UAEM this summer.
Since 2002, UNT and UAEM have worked collaboratively on the academic training of students from both institutions and in shared research projects. Originally focused in the fields of materials science, environmental science and physics, the partnership has grown to include the humanities. Located in Toluca, a city of 2 million people 45 miles west of Mexico City, UAEM is one of the largest public universities in Mexico. The university has been educating professionals in all disciplines for 177 years and offers a high school program and 58 undergraduate and 74 graduate degree programs.
The exhibition is curated by José Luis Vera. Participating artists are: Ana Daniela García Lugo, Sara Martínez Ayala, Laura Contreras Martínez, Taide Itzel Martínez and Adrián Ortega Ramírez. This exhibition exchange is made possible by the UNT-UAEM Academic Liaison Office and the College of Visual Arts and Design.
The exhibition is on display through Sept. 2, 2011.
Gallery Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. Cora Stafford Gallery in Oak Street Hall is located at 1120 W. Oak St. on the University of North Texas campus in Denton.
