The University Art Gallery Presents First Exhibitions of 2008

The University Art Gallery at Truman State University is delighted to host three exciting new exhibitions to start off 2008. “Recent Work” by John Bohac, professor of art, fills the Spotlight Gallery with work that focuses on the individual life and materiality of paint. “Pictocrypt,” a selection of drawings and paintings in the Main Gallery by Emily Booth, assistant professor of art, addresses human interaction through semiotics and narrative picturewriting. “See Related Story: The Murder of J.R. Warren,” in The Cube, is a body of work by Brooklyn-based artist Rory Golden that examines the nature of prejudice, bigotry and hate crimes and the role we all play in them.
The Gallery invites everyone to attend a reception at 6 p.m. Jan. 22 to view these interesting and challenging exhibitions. “Recent Work” and “Pictocrypt” are on display from Jan. 14-Feb. 22, “See Related Story” from Jan. 14-Feb. 15.

The University Art Gallery at Truman is located on the ground floor of Ophelia Parrish. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4:30 p.m. Gallery exhibits, talks and most other events are free and open to the public.
