The piece “Which Way Crow,” by DeAnna Rigter, will be among the 30 works of tape

The piece “Which Way Crow,” by Pennsylvania-based artist DeAnna Rigter, shows a woman in a long soaring dress and ponytail looking as though she is getting advice from a crow in a tree.

The vivid work is not a photograph or painting, but a tapestry – made from wool and silk on wool wrap.

It will be one of 40 pieces shown at the Small Tapestry International 5, an exhibition sponsored by the American Tapestry Alliance, Aug. 17 (Thursday) – Sept. 30 (Saturday) at UNT on the Square. The reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 1 (Friday).

UNT President Neal Smatresk recently attended the President’s Forum and 14th Graduation Ceremony of the Sino-American 1+2+1 China Transfer Program in Dalian City, China.

The University of North Texas College of Engineering has partnered with Dalian Jiaotong University in China to create a transfer program in materials science and engineering. The “1+3” program allows qualified students to complete one year of undergraduate study at DJTU and then transfer to UNT to finish the remaining three years of study needed to satisfy the university’s degree requirements. Students who complete the program will receive a bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering from UNT, as well as a bachelor’s degree from DJTU.
