In celebration of 50 years of graduate studies at the University of Dallas, the Beatrice M. Haggerty
Gallery presents “View from the Art Village: 50-Year Retrospective,” an exhibition that features
more than 40 alumni artists of the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts. Promising exciting work
from stalwart artists such as Bob Nunn, Linnea Glatt, Roberto Munguia, and Ann Stautberg, among
many more, this exhibition features some of North Texas’ most prominent artists, whose works have
been featured in museums, galleries, churches and convents around the world.

Spanning half a century, “View from the Art Village: 50-Year Retrospective” provides visitors with a
survey of contemporary artists who spent their formative years in the University of Dallas’ Haggerty
Art Village. While selecting the exhibition’s featured artists, Nancy Cohen Israel, exhibit curator,
found the caliber of University of Dallas artists revelatory because “so many have been especially
vital to North Texas’ art scene.”

Early art graduates Jack Mims, George Green and Jim Roche, make up three-fourths of the
famous “Oak Cliff Four,” who pioneered Texas Funk — an art movement that blended cultural
Texas idioms with psychedelic, pop art — in the early ’70s. Sister Maria Liebeck, member of the
religious community Daughters of Charity, has used art to connect prayer and faith, devoting her
art ministry to serving the poor.

In Dallas alone, many University of Dallas art alumni have recently exhibited their works, including
Roberto Munguia and his large retrospective, Buscador/Descubridor, displayed at the Latino
Cultural Center; Lucas Martell, with a solo exhibition at Circuit 12; Rachel Muldez, with a solo
exhibition at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center; and multimedia artist and writer Laray Polk, and her
Trinity River Project collaboration presented by the Liliana Bloch Gallery. Other significant artists
include Christine Bisetto, former Haggerty Gallery director, and Professor Emeritus Juergen Strunck,
who headed the university’s printmaking program for decades.

A Dallas-based art historian, art educator and writer, Israel is the owner of Art à la Carte, which
brings together art enthusiasts for classes on art history, tours and special programs. For 15 years,
she has coordinated local, regional and international tours with the popular series “Second
Saturdays,” visiting artists’ studios, private collections and other unique art spaces. Her familiarity
with the Dallas/Fort Worth art scene made her the perfect candidate to curate this 50-year
retrospective exhibition.

“Beyond the boundless talent that has emerged from the University of Dallas graduate art
program, the school is unique for its leadership in other ways. From being the first integrated school
in Texas to offering the first coed art program at a Catholic university, this dynamic of always
moving forward continues to create trailblazing artists who will, no doubt, continue to push the
boundaries of contemporary art,” said Exhibition Curator Nancy Cohen Israel.

Artists on view are Carol Beesley, Christine Bisetto, Gabriel Brubacher, Kate Colin, Donald
Copeland, Carol Cook, Annie Chrietzberg, Mark Epstein, Nancy Ferro, Linnea Glatt, Linda G.
