UNT Fine Arts Series: Vernon Fisher
"Words and Pictures" by UNT Regents Professor of Art Emeritus Vernon Fisher is an exhibition of paintings and sculptures from 1980 to the present and celebrates the grand opening of the expanded and integrated College of Visual Arts and Design building at the University of North Texas.
Born in 1943 in Fort Worth, Fisher is one of Texas's most internationally recognized artists. Influenced by artists such as Edward Ruscha and John Baldessari, Fisher constructs visual narratives, combining images and language in a wide range of media. His work has been featured in two Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial exhibitions and in over 80 solo exhibitions worldwide.
The opening reception will be on October 11, followed by an exhibition tour on October 12.
