DENTON — The Texas Woman’s University Department of Visual Arts presents the first exhibit in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to focus on Native American women artists with “Native American Women: Tradition and Change,” Feb. 27 through March 31 in Denton.

The exhibition will be featured in TWU’s West Fine Arts Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building at the corner of Oakland and Texas streets on TWU’s Denton campus. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. An opening reception for the artists will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26 in the gallery.
