Join the University of Dallas art community on Wednesday, December 1st for free food, fun, and drinks.  The mother of senior Art History major Maddie Rekerdres is concluding the exhibition of her artwork tonight from 6pm to 8pm in the Haggerty Art Loggia in the Art VillageCarolyn Rekerdres’ painting series, The Generosity of Water, is discussed in more detail on Art&Seek.

Honestly, these gallery openning and closing receptions are some of the best kept secrets on campus.  Not only are they great for the Old Mill (ahem, excuse me, Tower Village) apartment resident without a meal plan, but the company is wonderful and the art is always impressive.  I love hearing the backstory from the artist on a particular piece–I learn something new with each exhibit.

While you’re there, make sure to see the work of Gordon Young and Enrique Fernandez Cervantes through December 12, 2010 in the Haggerty Gallery. The reception has past, but the art in Cut and Paste is fascinating.
