Every two years, UA studio art faculty exhibit their ongoing research in art in a group show for the community. Gallery director and Associate Professor William Dooley produced the exhibition and comments, “With our new faculty added to the mix and innovative materials and approaches in art production, the works display a richness of artistic depth that makes this year’s show a great opportunity for Tuscaloosa art patrons.”
New to the Biennial this year will be professors Jane Cassidy, Giang Pham and Bryce Speed, as well as Adrienne Callander of New College. Other exhibiting artists are professors Henry Betak (emeritus), William T. Dooley, Christopher Jordan, Sarah Marshall, Matt Mitros, Pete Schulte, Sky Shineman, and Craig Wedderspoon.
