This annual exhibition is a chance for the School of Art and Design at Texas State University to extend an invitation to selected alumni to exhibit works that reflect their current creative practice. While the exhibited works are diverse, they have a common thread: Each represents an intersection of concept and process, resulting in compelling works of art. This survey exhibition consists of works across the disciplines of painting, ceramics, metals, photography, printmaking, sculpture, performance, and video. It seeks to celebrate the creativity of School of Art and Design alumni across disciplines and provide an opportunity to see how these artists and their practices have continued to mature during the years following their time at Texas State.
