Arlington – The Gallery at UTA is pleased to present this exhibition showcasing two Texas artists who both create artworks ranging in scale from the intimate to oversize – but utilizing very different processes, themes and media. Ms. McCleary (Nacogdoches) meticulously crafts labor-intensive 3-D collages, layering materials such as plastic toy figures, beads and paper to depict arresting and dense narratives. Her content ranges from the humorous and surreal to the Biblical in complex pieces that are painstakingly constructed. In contrast, Ms. Rosenberg (Dallas) is known for elegant abstract drawings that use the history of botanical art as a starting point to convey her transformed interpretations of various flora. Her works are minimal and painterly, emphasizing simple, direct lines and mark-making as well as subtle color in lyrical compositions. Together their works create a fascinating dialogue about distinctive method and style in artistic practice.

Mary McCleary was born in Houston, received her B.F.A. in printmaking and drawing from TCU in Fort Worth and her M.F.A. in graphics from the University of Oklahoma, and is Professor Emeritus at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches where she taught art for thirty years.  Since 1970 her work has been included in over 250 exhibitions throughout the United States and in Mexico and Russia and can be found in public collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the San Antonio Museum of Art and others.

Andrea Rosenberg’s work is included in the permanent collections of institution such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Dallas Museum of Art, and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth as well as numerous private and corporate collections. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, studied at the Art Students League in New York City and at the Cleveland Institute of Art where she received her B.S. and M.A.  Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States and internationally in Iran and Germany.
