"New American Talent, 16," an art exhibit organized by the Texas Fine Arts Association, opens Wednesday, Jan. 23, in Baylor University's Martin Museum of Art in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center. The exhibit runs through Feb. 27.

Now in its 16th year, "New American Talent" showcases artwork created by emerging artists from throughout the country. The works exhibited were selected by Anne Umland, associate curator in the department of painting and sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

"What is captured here are a series of distinctive instances of artistic expression in the making, as represented by different artists working in the United States today," Umland said.

The Baylor exhibit will feature 31 artworks in a wide-range of media, from sculptures to paintings to photographs.

"There is something for everybody," said Dr. Heidi Hornik-Parsons, associate professor of art and director of the Martin Museum.
