LUBBOCK - Landmark Arts in Texas Tech University's School of Art has opened a new art exhibition.

The MIX! 2005 [redux] exhibition, presented in the Landmark Gallery in the School of Art, will run through June 23.

The Mix! Series is the creation of the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art and Joan Davidow, its director. Each year the Mix! Series presents five young, ethnically and geographically diverse Texas artists whose work is as influenced by their cultural background as it is by the world-discourse of contemporary art.

As part of the program, each artist is given a focus exhibition during his or her year in the Mix! Series. For the Landmark Arts Mix! 2005 [redux] exhibition, a group show was curated, selecting either recent work or commissioning new work, from four of the five Mix! 2005 artists.

The resulting exhibition includes work by Alejandro Almanza Pereda from New York City, Suguru Hiraide from Wichita Falls, Luz Maria Sanchez from San Antonio and Takako Tanabe from Fort Worth.

To preview the exhibition, please visit the Landmark Arts website at www.landmarkarts.org and follow the links to the Mix! 2005 [redux] exhibition.
