The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is proud to announce we will be hosting our third
annual Onward Forward in 2019. This exhibition is for artists currently enrolled in an MA or MFA degree in Dallas,
Denton, and Fort Worth area. The exhibition is open themed and submissions from all
visual media are eligible, including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and
video. The juried group is an opportunity for current students to exhibit their work
alongside their university colleagues in the region and gives visitors an excellent
overview of the variety of perspectives that exist locally.
Our 2019 Juror is Katherine Wagner, arts advocate and CEO of Business Council for
the Arts, a not-for-profit organization. Throughout her career, Ms Wagner has developed
and encouraged relationships between businesses and arts organizations.
