Vincent Valdez: Stations exhibit cover art

Vincent Valdez: Stations

February 1 – April 30, 2006
University Gallery, upper level

In this exhibition, San Antonio-based artist Vincent Valdez uses the Passion story as the basis for a series of large-scale charcoal drawings that recast Christ as a boxer and the crucifixion as a boxing match. Embracing the dark themes of manhood and spirituality, Valdez transforms the Passion into a rite of passage, and a boy's struggle to grow into manhood by confronting his own fears.

 Eric Sall: Light Pollution exhibit cover art

Eric Sall: Light Pollution

September 6 – September 24, 2006
Visual Arts Gallery

There is a visual gravity that exists within the paintings of Eric Sall. Gestural marks, flat shapes, impastoed dollops, and textured washes pull together into clustered forms on the surface of the canvas as if coalescing. Sall plays with the history of painting, mingling representation's modes and methods with a seemingly disparate lexicon of marks.

Diana Al-Hadid: Pangaea's Blanket exhibit cover art

Diana Al-Hadid: Pangaea's Blanket

October 4 – November 5, 2006
Visual Arts Gallery

Diana Al-Hadid uses fiberglass planes, or "membranes," to create large-scale installations that outline and organize space and create the appearance of fragile landscapes. These large-scale installations function as imaginary places that refer to architecture, set design, and the baroque, and depict a variety of forms and geological events that suggest the expansion and formation of geological time.

Past In Reverse: Contemporary Art of East Asia

August 23 – December 8, 2006

The exhibition's premise is borrowed from a common practice shared by the artists – namely, using the past to map the future. Ranging in age from their twenties to their fifties, and working with both traditional materials and new technologies, including painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video, and digital media, the artists in Past in Reverse represent the region's tremendous contemporary import and deep cultural complexity.
