A collaborative exhibit of artworks by two School of Visual Arts and Design professors will run Jan. 16 to Feb. 14 at the UCF Art Gallery.
The free show, called Babylon, will feature art books, prints, paintings and sculptures by Ke Francis and Robert Rivers, including some from their recent sabbaticals.
Francis is a multi-media artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally during his 40-year career. He has received grants and awards from the Rockefeller Bellagio Study Center, Southern Arts Federation, Polaroid Foundation, Deep South Humanities Council and others. He and his wife, Mary, own Hoopsnake Press in Orlando, a fine art press that publishes books and prints.
Rivers’ prints also have been exhibited around the world and selections are housed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, Scotland, and other venues. He and his wife, Peggy Stevens, live in Maitland and own Brookmore Farms in Oviedo.
An opening reception will be held 6-8 p.m. Jan. 16. The gallery’s normal hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The gallery is in the Visual Arts Building just off West Gemini Boulevard and Aquarius Agora Drive.
