Art gallery features print exhibit

March 5, 1997

The University Art Gallery is featuring the works of Kenneth Hale and Lee Chesney, art professors at the University of Texas, through April 5. The gallery is located in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts building.

Chesney, who is known for his color vicosity prints, has exhibited throughout the United States as well as China, Iran and Sweden. His prints are created on a one etching plate instead of on a series of color separated plates. He began teaching at the University of Texas in 1972.

Hale, whose specialization is in lithographs, monoprints and etchings, has exhibited on an international scale including shows in Thailand, Spain, Belgium and Peru. He received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in 1990 and was the resident artist at the Frans Masereal Center for Graphic Arts in Belgium in 1995. In addition, he was the E.W. Doty professor in fine arts at the University of Texas in 1995-1996.

Hale will host a lecture on his work at 9 a.m., Wednesday, March 19, and will demonstrate his techniques and show slides of his work from 2-5 p.m., in Room 169 in the Lewis Art Building that same afternoon. Both will be free of charge.

The University Art Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
