The University of Texas at Tyler has announced two art exhibitions featuring the work of Master of Arts degree candidates, presented by the Department of Art and Art History.

The spring thesis exhibitions are being held at the UT Tyler Fine Arts Complex Gallery, which is open to the public 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The first exhibition, titled "Legacy in Lines,'' features the work of Mary Ann Post of Tyler. The show is currently open and continues through March 29. A reception and artist talk will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 21.

A portrait artist, Post employs wood burning techniques to create line images, intermingling the organic fluidity of the burnt lines and the curves of the wood grain. Her work depict older adults enjoying life.

"My intent is to show my viewers that aging is not something to be dreaded, but it is to be embraced," she said.

The second exhibition, titled "Objects/Work" and featuring the artwork of Nora Schreiber of Tyler, will be held April 8 – 19. A reception and artist talk is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 18.

Schreiber's exhibition will combine mixed-media sculptures, video, photography and installation to compel viewers to question their surroundings. Her work represents familiar objects and settings, curiously twisted to show a forgotten side. Her intent is to show the viewer a more open side to daily life.

For more information about the events, contact Michelle Taff, gallery and media coordinator, at 903.566.7237 or mtaff@uttyler.edu.
