The Gallery at UTA presents concurrent exhibitions showcasing interdisciplinary artists Alicia Eggert (Denton) and Robert Hodge (Houston). The two artists have in common their use of words and materials that reference modern urban culture: Eggert through lighted text works that resemble advertising signage and Hodge through altered materials collected from city streets with words, phrases and lyrics cut out or inscribed on them.
You can visit The Gallery at UTA’s website here.
