DENTON (UNT), Texas -- Students of the late painting professor Rob Erdle, regents professor emeritus at the University of North Texas, plan to celebrate his life by displaying his work alongside their own.

The paintings will be on display beginning April 23 (Wednesday) at UNT on the Square, 109 N. Elm St.

Sam Ivie, one of Erdle's former students helped make this exhibit come to life.

"There was no one like Rob Erdle," Ivie said. "He was easily one of the best teachers and best artists I have personally known. This was something I wanted to do as a way of honoring Erdle's memory and to keep the spirit of this teaching alive."

Ten of Erdle's former students will display their work in the exhibition. Featured artists include Rebecca Barham, John Carollo, David Collins, Beth Gouldin, Sara Ibach, Mary Quiros, Amy Schnoll, Jo Williams, Stephen Zhang, Sam Ivie and works by Erdle's wife Millie Giles.

"Various approaches and techniques will be on display," Ivie said. "This collection of works really shows the depth of Erdle's painting knowledge."
The last day of the free exhibition is May 21 (Wednesday). The gallery is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-noon, 1 p.m.-5 p.m., with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Saturdays from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. and closed on Sundays.
