Exhibit to feature pioneering TWU art faculty


DENTON - Eight pioneering Texas Woman's University faculty members will be recognized by the Visual Arts Society of Texas in an exhibition titled "Pioneers in Modernism."

The exhibit will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, Jan. 23-Feb. 28, in the Gough Gallery in the Center for the Visual Arts, 400 E. Hickory St. in Denton. A gala featuring a lecture, image presentation and music will take place Friday, Jan. 22 at the Center. For more information, visit

"Pioneers in Modernism" will feature the works of Marjorie Baltzel, Edith Brisac, Carlotta Corpron, Marie Delleney, Dorothy Antoinette (Toni) LaSelle, Thetis Lemmon, Mabel Maxcy and Coreen Spellman.  These women taught at TWU from the 1920s to the 1970s and were at the forefront of the Modernist movement - marked by the use of conceptual and abstract techniques - in Texas.

TWU is honored to have the works of these extraordinary women recognized, and encourages the Denton community to learn more about them and their works during the VAST exhibition.
