For more than 40 years, the College of Visual Arts and Design has hosted its annual Faculty and Staff Exhibition.

This year’s exhibition will run through Dec. 15 at the UNT Art Gallery and gives art students and the public the opportunity to see what their professors are working on.

The 55 CVAD faculty and staff have a little less than a year to work on one or two pieces for the exhibition.

The artists bring a variety of media and subject matter, UNT Art Gallery director Tracee Robertson said.

Robertson, who has been the director for five years, has seen the progress of the artists and anticipates that this year will bring art as diverse as the college itself.

“The spirit of our exhibition program here at CVAD is that our students see as much art by living artists in the four years that they are here,” Robertson said.

The exhibition’s opening reception will take place at 5-7 p.m. Thursday. The artists will be available to speak about their pieces and answer any questions the audience may have.

“The reception is a great time to highlight the features that are being presented,” assistant gallery director Victoria DeCuir said.

DeCuir handled all the preparations for this year’s event. She said the biggest challenge with putting together such a large exhibition is placing the artwork so that it is organized and arranged in an aesthetically pleasing way.

The exhibition reflects the character of the college and the people whose creative talents help shape its learning environment, CVAD dean Robert Milnes said about the annual event in last year’s brochure.

Visual resources curator Ann Graham, a 22-year participant, has a piece in the exhibition titled “Stories.”

Graham got her inspiration for the piece from the popular show “Law and Order.”

She said she is excited for the opportunity to be a part of the exhibition again this year.

“It’s fun to see how artists change,” Graham said. “It’s also fun to see my work in a different setting outside of my studio. I love getting feedback from people.”
