The University of Texas-Pan American announces the opening of a Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition entitled "BFA-5," a show by Mike Ayala, Dora Espinoza, Victor Esquivel, Luis Licerio and Maribel Torres.

The exhibit will be presented in the University Gallery located in the Communication Arts and Sciences Building, April 23 to May 4. A reception for the artists is scheduled for Thursday evening, April 26 from 7 - 9 p.m. in the Clark Gallery.

Ayala will display his unique work, which concentrates on graphic design and his sensual design to market perfume and capture the essence of femininity.

Espinoza's work will showcase her black and white photography inspired by the beauty, mystery and art hidden within graveyards and tombstones.

Esquivel's artwork will combine traditional artistic methods and media with the challenging nature of graphic design and computer technology. He attempts to bring a new look to his work through innovative use of color, composition and text.

The work of Licerio is focused on digital art, both in its application to commercial design and for personal expression. He will also show poster-sized prints, active-wear designs along with his digital animations that will be projected on a wide screen.

Torres will show an advertising campaign using flash animation. Her advertisement focuses on an interactive futuristic product using elements she hopes will create an instantly recognizable trademark for the product.

Admission to all exhibitions is free. The galleries are open Monday through Friday except on University holidays.

For more information or for special accommodations please contact Dindy Reich, Gallery Director, at 956/381-2655.
