Opening reception for 'Water! What is it Good for?' to be held Jan. 21

The opening reception of "Water! What is it Good for?" will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, at the University Art Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.

For this exhibition, Bethany Taylor, an interdisciplinary artist from Gainesville, Florida and assistant professor of drawing at the University of Florida, is using the medium of string to draw figurative artworks that will be installed on the UAG?s walls. Taylor?s works can be understood as contemporary allegories with a twist. These woven stories combine cross-cultural mythology and symbols with modern-day imagery and concerns for the longevity of our environment.

Brenda Perry, an El Paso, Texas native, works across media and focuses on the Rio Grande river as the central theme of her work. Born in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, she sees the Rio Grande as a threshold between communities that needs to be reconsidered from combined social and environmental perspectives. In her interactive works that will be on display, Perry bridges the logic between contemporary virtual and physical landscapes.
