ARTICLE: One Cube Foot Exhibit Opens

By Suzanne McKeon Special to the Reporter-News
Wednesday, March 18, 2009

"Think outside the box" is an expression often heard in creative circles to encourage independent thinking.

This month, a number of creative talents will be thinking inside the box to show the world their various creative executions in a new exhibition called "One Cube Foot" at the Ryan Fine Arts Gallery at McMurry University (14th and Sayles).

It is in association with TASA -- the Texas Association of Schools of Art -- and features work from a variety of university art instructors from Texas who are also TASA members. Since 1994, TASA has invited its individual artist members to submit work to an annual exhibition held in conjunction with the organization's annual conference, itself held in a different Texas city every year with Abilene being the host city for the 2009 event.
