Assistant professor of art Nicole Foran said this is the first exhibit showcasing art alumni work.

 “The reason we have decided to organize the Show at this time is to celebrate our graduates’ achievements.  All the artists participating graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from TAMIU and many have gone on to pursue other goals. They have gone on to graduate school, found jobs in the arts, or exhibit their work on the national level,” Foran explained.

“I am particularly excited about this show because of its potential to motivate our current students. These artists are wonderful representatives of the success that can come with pursuing art and achieving a degree from TAMIU,” explained Foran, “Now is our opportunity to share these successes with the Laredo community, who have endlessly supported us and the arts.”

The art exhibit will be displayed throughout March and several featured artists will attend the opening reception, sharing their insight and experiences.

Works will be displayed through Friday, April 4 at the TAMIU Art Gallery. (Parental discretion advised)
