The Gallery at The University of Texas at Arlington is pleased to present a two-person exhibition featuring Rimer Cardillo, and Darryl Lauster. Rimer Cardillo is a Uruguayan-born, New York-based printmaker whose work addresses the themes of memory, artifact and the impact of the human footprint on nature. Darryl Lauster, a recent addition to the art & art history sculpture faculty at UTA, creates and displays artifacts from pseudo-archeological sites to question the meaning of objects and their validity as signifiers of past cultures.
