NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Stephen F. Austin State University’s annual School of Art Faculty Exhibition will show Aug. 29 through Sept. 29 in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches. An opening reception is planned for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31.
Each year, the faculty exhibition features a wide variety of artworks in ceramics, sculpture, photography, painting, prints, metals and mixed media, according to Christopher Talbot, director of the SFA School of Art.
