The University of Texas at Tyler has announced the opening of a public exhibition featuring works by seven art students at the UT Tyler Meadows Gallery.

"Liminal Coherence,'' an exhibition in partial fulfillment of the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, continues through April 12 with a mix of paintings, prints, ceramics, sculptures and mixed media. A reception and gallery talks for "Liminal Coherence'' will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 11.

Artists featured in the exhibition include:

Megan Brewer of Chandler, formerly of Kuwait, is inspired by her experiences traveling around the world. She is interested in the concept of temporarily leaving one's life behind to experience something unknown. Each piece is an environment she is inviting the viewer to explore. Her process for creating these pieces consists of layering, mark-making and vibrant, lively colors.

Keri Fidone of Tyler showcases sacred documents that reveal a powerful journey, through the layering of color, line and text. Using special printmaking techniques, she harmonizes these elements to reveal a vulnerability that parallels her journey.

Kate Finch of Tyler uses watercolor and collage to communicate her passion for vivid colors and expression of personal identity. Finch creates nonrepresentational watercolor pieces, which she relates to the manipulation of the physical body to identify one's self.

Elizabeth Lenz of Van illustrates the concepts of human perception and emotions through a framework of beauty and grace found in implied motion. Her steel sculptures testify to a different way of seeing.

Kyndall Luckey of Tyler creates art with a focus on her interpretation of memories or stories told by loved ones. Her landscape oil paintings represent the environment where these memories took place, inviting the viewer to experience each memory for themselves.

Stephanie Nickel of Tyler offers a provocative exploration of themes such as human frailty,conflict, reconciliation and redemption. Her works on paper commingle overt imagery with text or other supportive elements, offering potential narratives or questions for the viewer.

Lilah Shepherd of Tyler produces oil paintings and coil-built clay sculptures to create nonobjective environments that explore human connections. She uses forms discovered through her stream of consciousness and colors from her childhood.

The Meadows Gallery is open to 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call 903.566.7237 or send an email to mtaff@uttyler.edu.
