32nd Annual International Exhibition
DESCRIPTION The Annual International Exhibition is a juried visual art competition organized by the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Tyler. Internationally known artists, curators, and scholars have served as jurors selecting works for exhibition created by some of the best contemporary artists working today. The Department purchases three to six works from the exhibition each year; purchased works are added to our permanent collection. The permanent collection serves as an educational teaching resource; much of the permanent collection is exhibited throughout the UT Tyler main campus.
JUROR Ken Little, Professor of sculpture, ceramics and performance art at the University of Texas at San Antonio since 1988, is a native Texan. He received a BFA from Texas Tech University and a MFA from the University of Utah. He has held tenured positions at major universities, including the University of Montana at Missoula and the University of Oklahoma in Norman. Little is a nationally recognized artist who has been granted two Visual Arts Fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts in 1982 and 1989. Since 1993, he has maintained a working studio and Rrose Amarillo, an alternative exhibition space in downtown San Antonio. He also serves on the Board of Directors at Artpace, San Antonio. Little’s work has been featured in over 40 solo national and international solo exhibitions, at venues such as The Washington Project for the Arts, Washington D.C.; The John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin; The Forum for Contemporary Art, St. Louis, Missouri; Diverse Works in Houston, Texas; and The Honolulu Academy of the Arts in Honolulu, Hawaii. His work has featured in over 200 group exhibitions including The Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
