March art exhibit features scenes from the Southwest

Sanford painting Staff members admire some of Bill Sanford's paintings on display in the auditorium.

The Arts and Exhibitions Committee invites the Health Science Center community to this month's art exhibit, titled "Reflections 2001: Scenes from the Southwest and Other Ramblings." The artist is Bill Sanford, a retired educator who spent the last 23 years of his professional life with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Sanford has exhibited with the Austin Pastel Association and at Southwest Texas State University, Bank of America and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. His works are on display in the auditorium foyer through the end of March.

The Arts and Exhibitions Committee was established in 1968. Its purpose is to provide a more balanced, stimulating environment for the students, faculty and staff of the UTHSC, who spend much of their time in scientific and technical pursuits. It also serves to attract members of the general public who otherwise might not visit the campus.

Mini De La Garza, chair of the committee, said any artist affiliated with the Health Science Center is welcome to exhibit. She added that the committee is always looking for new members who have a passion for the arts.

For more information on how to exhibit, how to become a committee member or how to purchase one of Sanford's paintings, call De La Garza at ext. 7-4777.
