Whew…That’s a Relief!
January 29 – March 30, 2016

Reception: Friday, January , 29 – 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Arlington – The Gallery at UTA is pleased to present “Whew…That’s a Relief!” The Madcap World of John Hernandez, 1978 – 2015, a retrospective exhibition by San Antonio artist John Hernandez that spans four decades of creative activity.

The brightly colored, cartoon-like images depicting bizarre narratives and quirky vignettes display the energetic playfulness slightly twisted by a dark sense of humor that are the hallmarks of the artist. Through a variety of media including prints, drawings, paintings, large and small-scale sculptural objects and monumental wall reliefs, installed alongside site-specific wall paintings, this exhibition has been organized to illuminate the highly colorful career of this imaginative Texas artist.

The Gallery at UTA is open 10 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday, and noon – 5 pm on Saturdays. The Gallery is located on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building, FA169, at 502 S. Cooper Street, Arlington, TX. For more information contact Benito Huerta or Patricia Healy (817) 272-5658 or www.uta.edu/gallery.
