The UTC Cress Gallery of Art announces Selections III: An Exhibition of Art from the UTC Permanent Collection, which runs through Friday, July 26.  Admission is free.

Gallery Summer hours: 10 a.m.– 4 p.m. Monday-Friday; closed weekends and July 1– 5.

“The UTC Cress Gallery of Art has opened its doors for a summer exhibition offering a fresh and timely selection of seldom seen art from the UTC Permanent Collection,” said Ruth Grover, Curator of the Cress Gallery of Art.  “It’s a colorful exhibition full of light and sound with subject matter from portraits to landscape, from the simple beauty of everyday interiors to ideas of fanciful cricket bats, and from meditative abstractions to finely detailed renderings.”

This exhibition is sponsored in part by the Friends of the Cress Gallery.  Additionally, gifts from the Ackerman Foundation (1980), the UTC Chancellor’s Senior BFA Purchase Award, and gifts from the artists themselves support this exhibition.

Comprised of seventeen works by thirteen artists, this exhibition includes drawings, original artists’ prints, installation, and video.  Works created from 1923 to 2012 will be displayed.

Featured are limited edition prints by prominent 20th Century British artists Patrick Caulfield, Robyn Denny, Patrick Heron, Gordon House, and John Hoyland; renowned Swiss artist Dieter Roth with a portfolio of original prints; a work from the Russian School of Voronezh acquired during a UTC Department of Art and Voronezh College of Art cultural exchange; American artists Daniel Garber, Herbert L. Fink, and those with special ties to UTC: Barry Moser, Ann Poss, Matthew Deleget (Fall 2012 UTC Diane Marek Visiting Artist), and Joseph Shipp (UTC BFA Graphic Design 2006).
