Results: Works from the UD Iron Pour
April 12-22, 2018
Reception, April 18 | 5-7 p.m. with Introduction 5:45 p.m.
Thompson Loggia, Art History Building

In early March, an iron pour was held at on campus. With the help of the Texas Atomic Iron Pour Commission, 500 pounds of cast iron was broken and melted in an exciting fiery display. The event brought together artists, faculty, students, and spectators. All were there to watch the 2,500 degrees of molten iron pour from a cupola, or specifically designed furnace and into student and faculty made molds.

These molds were then cooled and broken open to reveal the results! Please join us to see the art that resulted from this fantastic project.

The UD Iron Pour was made possible with support from the Novinski Endowment, which generously supports programming in the arts.


Interstices | Kelly O’Briant
April 12-22, 2018
Reception, April 18 | 5-7 p.m. with artist talk 5:15 p.m.
Upper Gallery, Painting/Printmaking Gallery

Interstices is a unique glimpse into the many ways technology, science, and collaborative projects inform Kelly O’Briant’s art practice. O’Briant presents a series of interconnected small works created in gaps of time found between continuous projects and large exhibitions.

O’Briant is working with wildlife biologists and technicians in West Virginia and Virginia by using 3D printing to create decoys of Loggerhead Shrike birds for field research, she has been collaborating with ceramists in China, New York, and Texas to build an improved glaze test machine, and, closer to home, O’Briant is assisting The Cistercian Abbey Our Lady of Dallas to carry out a restoration project, on a colonial period crucifix, with artisans in Missouri.

The word “interstice” comes from the Latin “interstitium” which was derived from “inter” meaning “between” + “sistere” meaning “to stand” = to stand between. O’Briant demonstrates how the between spaces of art, research, and work can provide rich inspiration and opportunities for new works.

Please join us for the reception and hear more from Kelly O’Briant during her artist talk at 5:15 p.m., Wednesday, April 18.

Rachel Meginnes + Kelly O’Briant: What Remains opens Feb. 1 at Haggerty Gallery in Irving

New Exhibition | Rachel Meginnes + Kelly O’Briant: What Remains

Please join us for the opening reception of What Remains on Thursday, February 1, 5:30-8 p.m.

  • Artist talk | 5:30 to 6 p.m., Art History Auditorium
  • Reception | 6 to 8:00 p.m., Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery

What Remains speaks to both visual and conceptual depth – of the inherent memory embedded in the works of artist-educator Rachel Meginnes and Kelly O’Briant, assistant professor of ceramics, at the University of Dallas. For Meginnes, actual material, in the form of reclaimed textiles, forms the foundation of her process, a physical and metaphorical layering of wear and re-adapting, moving forward and revealing the past. In the work of O’Briant, the remainders are often phantom forms – a chimaera or abstraction of scientific theory. Her work in ceramics has explored the notions of dark matter, light and shadow, the passage of time. For this exhibition, O’Briant mines the emotional effect of unsettlement and reconstruction – the physical act of carrying the past forward.

We are delighted that both artists will be on campus to give an artist presentation at the reception on Thursday, Feb.1 at 5:30 p.m. in the Haggar Auditorium in the Art Village on the University of Dallas campus, followed by a reception in the gallery. The exhibition is available for viewing through Saturday, Mar. 3, 2018.  

This exhibition is curated by Kathryn Gremley, Director of Penland Galler and travels to us from the Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. To view an online catalog of the show and for more information on the great work they do at Penland visit here.

Artist Talk & Reception with Martin Lam Nguyen, C.S.C. – Nov. 3 at UD’s Haggerty Gallery

You are warmly invited …

Please join us for the closing reception of Moments, a solo exhibition of works by Rev. Martin Lam Nguyen, C.S.C, this Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, from 5-8 p.m. An artist talk is being given in the Art History Auditorium at 5 p.m.at the University of Dallas with the reception following directly in the gallery. An artist catalog is being published for the occasion of the exhibition and will be available on the night. The exhibition ends this Sunday, Nov. 5, at 5 p.m., do not miss out!

A Roman Catholic priest from Vietnam, Nguyen will be transforming the gallery into a large installation for quiet meditation and reflection on the present moment.

The exhibition brings together three multi-year projects: Mountain Waits (1998-1999), Lucie (2001-2005), and Painting of the Social Network (2007-present). Occupying every inch of the gallery, this vast installation features thousands of cataloged moments, each carefully painted or drawn and then presented in a grid-like format. The result is a work of abounding repetition yet permeated with individuality, as each picture, like the moments they depict, reads as unique and personal.

“It is a room for meditation and it really resembles life,” says Nguyen, “the connections, the disconnections, the facts, the fragility of all of it and yet the power of life.” 

Devoted priest, long-serving educator and accomplished artist, Nguyen brings the many parts of his life together in the studio. Meditation and prayer join the rhythmic stroke of intricate line work. Like ink and water on paper, juxtaposing lessons from a life marred by war mix together with joyful religious service.

“Many of the things are sad, but the bottom line of this life is good,” said Nguyen. “Life is very precious. It’s a positive message.” 

Nguyen is an Associate Professor at the University of Notre Dame in the Department of Art, Art History and Design; he has been teaching there since 1995. In 1989, he became a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross after fleeing Vietnam as a refugee a decade earlier.

Moments, Martin Lam Nguyen Solo opening Oct. 5 at UD’s Haggerty Gallery

The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is honored to present Moments, a solo show by Martin Lam Nguyen. Please join us for either the opening reception on October 5, 6-8 p.m. or our closing reception November 3, 6-8 p.m. The exhibition runs through from October 5, to November 5, 2017.

A devoted priest, long serving educator, and accomplished artist, Nguyen brings the many parts of his life together in the studio. Meditation and prayer join the rhythmic stroke of intricate line work in drawings and lessons from a life marred by war mixed together with joyful religious service, like ink and water on paper, with the desire to teach and inspire.

Martin Lam Nguyen was born in Vietnam; he arrived in America as a refugee in 1979 and became a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross a decade later. He joined the art department of the University of Notre Dame in 1995 and continues there as Associate Professor of the Department of Art, Art History and Design.

Moments brings together three of Nguyen’s major multi-year projects; Mountain Waits, Lucie, and Painting the Social Network for the first time. Encompassing every inch of the gallery, in an impressive installation, thousands of cataloged moments are laid out in a grid format in each project. The result is abounding repetition and yet individuality, as each painted or drawn image, like the moments they depict, reads as unique and personal.

However, Nguyen’s work is less about him and more about us, the viewer, as he creates a space for us to contemplate the moments of our own lives while viewing his work in the present moment.
