site_midnight_sun>>orangegreengrey features the collaborative work of artists Nick Bontrager and Adam Fung, with art responding directly the unique color palette created by both the light phenomena and the unique landscapes of Iceland.

The two artists operate at the intersection of Art, Science, and Technology often engaging with unfamiliar environments to produce unexpected results. The work on view here reflects the working methodology of an "artist expedition" where materials and imagery are dynamically utilized and the aesthetic of a field sketch is activated to suggest open-ended or ongoing possibilities.

Please join us for an artist talk and exhibition reception for our current exhibition site_midnight_sun>>orangegreengrey, on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, from 5-8 p.m. at the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery. The artist talk will be held in the Art Auditorium of the Haggerty Art Village and begins at 5 p.m. the reception follows directly after in the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery and Thompson Loggia Foyer at 6 p.m. 

A note from the artists regarding the title of the exhibition site_midnight_sun>>orangegreengrey:

We arrived in Iceland on the first day of the Midnight Sun in Iceland, allowing us to experience twenty-four hours of daylight nearly the entire three weeks of our stay. This natural phenomenon invited endless exploration and unending study of the landscape as we routinely were able to hike or film into the late hours of the evening. We have created films, objects and images in response to this unique color palette created by both the light phenomena and the unique landscapes of Iceland.

The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is proud to host this exhibition in conjunction with Collin College, Denton who are hosting the partner show site_fjord_fjall>>blueblackgreen at The Arts Gallery on view until December 8, 2017, visit for more information.

Dignifying Humanity

Standing on the edge of border America, Diocese of El Paso Bishop Mark J. Seitz, BA '76, serves a role of vital importance as the pastor of a community divided by the United States-Mexico border. "Recently we have witnessed indefensible, hateful words toward our neighbors in Mexico, the demonization of migrants, and destructive language about our border," Seitz wrote in his July pastoral letter titled "Sorrow and Mourning Flee Away," earning him national attention amid significant upheaval of immigration rights.
