Triple Student Art Exhibition
Will Run at UTD May 16-June 7

RICHARDSON, Texas (April 30, 2003) - The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) will present a triple exhibition of artwork by UTD graduate students Sudeepa Ghosh, Katherine E. Fell and undergraduate Maria Rosa Jaral. The three exhibitions, "A Quest for I," "The Innumerable Layers of Beauty" and "Metamorphosis," will run simultaneously from May 16 to June 7 in the Main Gallery of UTD's Visual Arts Building on campus.

Ghosh's "A Quest for I" focus on visual images produced using analog and digital camera technologies and explores issues relating to self and identity. A native of India, Ghosh has observed on a global scale the tug of war between ethnical values and pop culture's influence and, in her work, she examines the process of creating images of the body as she studies cultures and their influences on the self. Her exhibition is in partial fulfillment of a Creative Master's Degree in Aesthetic Studies at UTD.

Fell's "The Innumerable Layers of Beauty" is an exhibition of black and white photographs that explores ideas about beauty in popular culture, with an emphasis on issues concerning female beauty. The collection of images displays the correlation between insecurity and self-consciousness as it relates to societal representations of beauty and draws a fine line between introspection and narcissism. Fell is a Texas native. Her exhibition is in partial fulfillment of a Master's Degree in Aesthetic Studies at UTD.

Jaral's "Metamorphosis" is an exhibition of black and white and color photographs that portrays the social and cultural transformation of Mexican women. The images depict women of Mexican heritage who have been influenced by other cultures, as evidenced by their dress as well as their practice of daily rituals. The exhibition affirms that, despite cultural and societal changes, these women have not lost their identity. Jaral is a graduating senior in the School of Arts and Humanities who is active in photojournalism and recently won first place for feature photography from the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association.

All UTD art exhibitions are free and open to the public. The Visual Arts Building is open Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The building is closed on Sundays.
