    Presented by the College of Fine Arts (The University Series)

    Florida artist Stuart Riordan’s work explores an ongoing dialogue with human identities, in particular, that of women. Her work can be understood in terms of commentary—mysterious, enlightening, horrifying, and even comical—the journey taken from misread instructions. Using multiple approaches in mixed media, her work evokes theatrical, dazzling and dreamlike states of being. Exhibition opening at 6 p.m., January 22.

    • Thu., Jan. 22–Sat., Mar. 28, The Cole Art Center, Ledbetter Gallery

    Presented by the College of Fine Arts (The University Series)

    Since the late 19th century, there have existed groups of artists who, academically trained or not, have chosen to work "outside" the mainstream of art. Often naïve or childlike in appearance, works of this nature reveal much about the human psyche in a world of conflicting values. This exhibition of works by Texas artists explores the continuation of this genre. Exhibition opening at 6 p.m., January 22.
