Kirk Hopper Fine Art is excited to announce our upcoming solo exhibition, Under Pressure, a print survey of Benito Huerta, covering over 40 years of the Texas artist's body of work and prints.

KHFA artist Benito Huerta returns to celebrate his storied career as a painter and printmaker. This exhibit will showcase some of his most well known prints, a body of work that continues to explore the intersection of power and exploitation through the acts of seduction and destruction. Huerta's exhibit will coincide with the Southern Graphics Council conference (March 6-9) in Dallas.

Benito Huerta received a BFA from the University of Houston, and his MA from New Mexico State University. He was co-founder, Executive Director and Emeritus Board Director of Art Lies, a Texas art journal. He is a professor at the University of Texas at Arlington where he has been Director/Curator of The Gallery at UTA since 1997.

Prints by Thomas Nozkowski

Known for his small scale biomorphic abstracted works, Nozkowski's prints carry a nuanced color and a variety of idiosyncratic form. His works are influenced by the everyday world and personal experiences, yet are obscured from familiarity.

Thomas Nozkowski (born 1944, Teaneck, New Jersey) received a BFA from the Cooper Union Art School, New York, in 1967. Known for his richly colored and intimately scaled abstract paintings, Nozkowski began exhibiting in group shows in 1973 and made his solo debut in 1979. By 1982, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, had acquired a painting from an early one-person exhibition for their permanent collection. To date, Nozkowski's paintings have been featured in more than 300 museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide, including over 70 solo shows.
