All manner of two-dimensional artwork from nearly 40 noted national and international artists is currently on display at The University of Texas at Tyler Meadows Gallery as part of the 33rd Annual International Exhibition.

A public reception with a presentation by this year's juror Michelle Smythe begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8 at the gallery. The exhibit concludes Friday, March 9.

"This year's exhibition excites and delights the visual senses with a richness and variety in each individual piece of work. The collection is a great representation of the contemporary art world, a real learning experience for our students and a treat for visitors to the Meadows Gallery," said Michelle Taff, UT Tyler Media and Gallery Coordinator for the Department of Art and Art History.

The Meadows Gallery is in the UT Tyler R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and by special appointment.
