 Edward Forde's "Deo Gratias" (oil on linen, 9-by-12 inches) will be on display during the "Introduction: An Exhibition of the Work of New Studio Art Faculty" exhibition Oct. 25 to Nov. 22 at the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery in Richards Hall.

"Introductions" features the work of three new faculty members: Edward Forde, chairman; Aaron Holz, assistant professor of painting; and Francisco Souto, assistant professor of printmaking.

Forde came to UNL from California State University, Los Angeles, where he was chairman of the art department. He received both his M.F.A. in art and his B.A. in English literature from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Holz was a temporary full-time professor at the College of Saint Rose. He received his M.F.A. in painting from the University of Albany, State University of New York. This past spring, he received a Juror's Award for his work at New York University's Washington Square East Gallery show Small Works.

Souto received his B.F.A. from The Herron School of Art and his M.F.A. from Ohio State University. He came to UNL this fall from East Carolina University, where he was an assistant professor of art.

Cridler is director of the Arts and Industry Program at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wis. Trained as a metalsmith, she creates works that use the history, making and meaning of craft and domestic ornamentation. She earned an M.F.A. in metals from the State University of New York at New Paltz and studied at Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting. Cridler has taught in art programs nationally including at the University of Michigan, San Diego State University, Arizona State University and Penland School of Crafts.
