Opening Reception: September 21, 6–8 pm


Austin, TX — The Visual Arts Center (VAC) at The University of Texas at Austin’s Department of Art and Art History is pleased to announce its fall 2012 season. This season includes exhibitions by regional and international artists, the VAC’s signature public program series, and collaborations with faculty, students, and alumni from the department. Together these programs support the VAC’s continued commitment to be a leading and experimental contemporary art space in central Texas, and offering a dynamic arena for the building of communities through the creation, exploration, and advancement of contemporary art.

Known for work that concurrently explores the lineaments of love, politics, sexuality, and gender, Emily Roysdon will be the fall Vaulted Gallery Artist-in-Residence and her site-specific installation will be on view from September 21 to December 8. Additional season highlights include HECHO FARM, the collaborative project of native Texan Cruz Ortiz; Under Gods, featuring the work of British photographer Liz Hingley; and Future Regions by Texas-based painters Shane Tolbert and Raymond Uhlir. Center Space Project, the student organization of the Visual Arts Center, presents the group exhibitions Now What It Never Was and A Nation of Fear, as well as Yet, By No Means with works by American immigrant artists Sandy Carson and Emma Whelan. The season concludes with Part Two: Department of Art and Art History Faculty Exhibition, the second installment in a three-part exhibition series featuring a selection of work by faculty artists from the Department.
