Thursday arts pick: “And Introducing: Jonathan Faber, Dana Frankfort, Jessica Mallios”

It’s almost unheard of in academia these days, but Texas State University this year hired five new tenure-track faculty in its School of Art and Design.

Three are studio art profs and are welcomed to campus with the exhibit “And Introducing: Jonathan Faber, Dana Frankfort, Jessica Mallios.”

The show opens Thursday with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m.

Both exhibits continues through Nov. 14.

Gallery hours: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays-Sundays. And admission is free.
