For additional information or to arrange a private tour, please contact Jim Edwards, gallery director, at jedwards@hbu.edu or Laura Kreft at lkreft@hbu.edu.
The HBU Contemporary Art Gallery is located in the University Academic Center on campus. This state-of-the art exhibition space was completed in the summer of 2012 and its inaugural exhibition, Spontaneous Memorial: A Commemorative Installation by Frank McEntire, honored the victims of 9/11.

The mission of the HBU Contemporary Art Gallery is to encourage contemporary artists to challenge and educate public perceptions of civic and social ideas and aesthetic and spiritual consciousnesses. The gallery functions as a teaching laboratory, hosts gallery tours and lectures by art department faculty and visiting artists, and periodically tours its exhibitions to other exhibition venues.

The 2014 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition features the artwork of eight artists graduating from the MFA program at Houston Baptist University.  A significant body of their work will be installed throughout the University Academic Center.

The eight artists who are included in this exhibit are Mack Bishop, Lakita Costner, Kim Cypert, Rachel Gardner, Stacy Kuropata, Alice Le Schrynemeeckers, Meredith Richey and Diandra Saer Rhodes.  The HBU Master of Fine Arts program has offered these students the opportunity to work in their on-campus studios and profit from regularly scheduled committee critiques of their work.  They have all exhibited in professional galleries and art centers in Texas and five of these students have studied abroad at Hans Molzberger's summer residency in Hilmsen, Germany as well as exhibited their work in the town of Salzwedel.  The award of the MFA degree grants these artists their inclusion in the world of professional artists.  This exhibition is a celebration of that fact; congratulations to each of them.
