DENTON (UNT), Texas ¾ The College of Visual Arts and Design Department of Studio Art “CORPS//” exhibition will give students and the greater Denton community an up-close look at the works of teachers at the University of North Texas.
One of the faculty artists, Andrew DeCaen, printmaking program coordinator, is showing a lithograph entitled “Thoroughly Populated Universe.” The piece was originally created for a group exhibition in Spring, 2018, titled “Lonesome No More” for the Kurt Vonnegut Museum in Indianapolis. DeCaen’s creative research focuses on printmaking, drawing, and sculptural paper with imagery exploring the space, time, and manner in which we eat, prepare, and acquire our meals.
“It is important for our students and the community to experience the wide variety of excellent artwork that we produce,” said DeCaen.
The exhibition will include ceramics, fibers, jewelry, metalsmithing, new media art, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed media works. Faculty and staff participants are professional artists whose artwork has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for students, the university and Denton communities to be introduced to the diversity of the arts practice and research of our faculty and staff,” said professor and chair of the Department of Studio Art Lauren Lake.
The UNT College of Visual Arts and Design provides students with the critical practice of the fine artists housed in a world-class Tier One research institution near the rich culture and art capitals of Dallas and Fort-Worth.
