CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Gallery of Art will present 'BFA Exhibition, Fall 2002' Dec. 9 through Dec. 21, on the second floor Mezzanine of the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. The opening reception will be at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 11 at the same location.
Printmaker, Vicki Truka, a UNI senior from Lime Springs, will present her artwork in partial fulfillment of the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Truka has been the recipient of several awards and scholarships including the Florence-Hartwig Scholarship, the David Sands Wright Scholarship, the Tostlebe-Ray Scholarship, the UNI Department of Art and CHFA Scholarships, and the Jo Hern Curris Award.
According to the artist, 'This body of work is representative of the interactions between people that I have noticed during my time in college. I use the medium of screen printing to form many layers of color, creating a visually appealing and abstract representation of these encounters.'
The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public. Building hours at the Gallagher-Bluedorn are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. For more information, call (319) 273-3095 or visit www.uni.edu/artdept/gallery.
