The University of Texas at Tyler announced the opening of its 34th Annual International Exhibition, which will continue through March 8 in the Meadows Gallery.

The exhibition features 63 contemporary works selected by juror and former Fort Worth Contemporary Arts curator Christina Rees from more than 800 entries. Meadows Gallery will host a reception with Rees' remarks at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31.

"The gallery is filled to the brim with gorgeous art from well-known artists,'' Michelle Taff, UT Tyler gallery and media coordinator, said of the exhibition, presented by the Department of Art and Art History. "From traditional landscapes to thought-provoking photographs to political satire, there is something for everyone.''

Following the exhibition, a number of the works will become part of UT Tyler's permanent art collection to be displayed around campus and used for teaching purposes, Taff said.

Reese is editor-in-chief of Glasstire magazine and has contributed art, film and music criticism to the Dallas Morning News, Fort Worth Star-Telegram and other publications. She served as an editor with The Met and D Magazine and a full-time columnist with the Dallas Observer.

Meadows Gallery is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call 903.566.7237 or send an email to mtaff@uttyler.edu.
