DENTON (UNT), Texas -- UNT on the square will open its doors to the community for a summer long watercolor exhibition called "H20HUE/UNT." The exhibition will be on display through July 21 (Saturday), and will showcase the work of 21 undergraduate and graduate painters from the watercolor concentration. The opening reception will be June 1 (Friday) 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The event will feature 3-D animals, including a skunk, raccoon, and badger, as well as a paint-in-motion film and hyper-realism pieces that described are "more real than real". This exhibition is dedicated to UNT graduate student and watercolor painter, Lisa Tseng, who died earlier this year.

The Watercolor Concentration at UNT became an independent area of study within the College of Visual Arts and Design in 2007.  Since its inception, nine painters have gone on to work on or receive their master of fine art degrees.  Four graduates are now teaching on a university level.  In 2010, 15 painters took part in the Niigata International Watercolor Exhibition in Japan.  Students in the concentration are encouraged to find their own direction, whether that be as a traditional painter or someone who takes the medium of watercolor into new and exciting territory, according to faculty members in the concentration.
