UT Tyler student art show begins Nov. 9


The University of Texas at Tyler Fine Arts Complex Gallery will present the student art exhibition "Push & Pull" from Monday through Nov. 20, Ray Sikes, gallery coordinator, said.

The exhibition highlights the work of Natavia Gamble, of Athens, Elizabeth Groth, of Tyler, and Wesley Stolusky, of Kaufman.

A reception with gallery talks is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10 at the gallery.

"Gamble works in wooden sculpture. She creates work focuses on the ideal form. Her abstract forms contain social subject matter," Sikes said. "Groth constructs installation work that juxtaposes organic and geometric forms. Her work focuses on the physical interaction between the work and viewer. Stolusky creates large-scale metal sculptures. His work discusses the impossibility of capturing perfect order. All the student artists' works have been nationally exhibited."

The gallery is housed in the Fine Arts Complex on the main campus. It is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
