(June 3, 2014) -- UTSA will present "New Art/Arte Nuevo: San Antonio 2014," a juried exhibition that presents the work of 52 artists who live, work or have roots in South and West Texas. The exhibition runs June 4-25 at the UTSA Art Gallery on the Main Campus.

The artworks represent an array of aesthetic interests and themes ranging from representational imagery to abstract design and from cultural criticism to sublime expression across the range of traditional and new media.

>> An opening reception will be 6-8 p.m., Wednesday, June 4 in the UTSA Art Gallery on the Main Campus.

This year's juror is multimedia artist Catherine Lee, well known for large abstract installations, sculptures and paintings. Her works are included in major collections around the world. Lee made selections from 300 works of art that were submitted by nearly 100 artists. "New Art/Arte Nuevo: San Antonio 2014" is the fourth installment of this biennial project.
