Professor's works displayed at Cowboys Stadium and Australian university

Cowboys Stadium in Arlington and Monash University near Melbourne, Australia, are a few of the latest settings for the works of Annette Lawrence, professor of studio art. Her installation “Coin Toss” is one of 14 contemporary art works commissioned for the new stadium. In the southeast VIP lobby, beginning 12 feet from the floor, the installation’s steel cablewire creates a convex shape on one side and a concave shape on the other, alluding, Lawrence says, to the promising moment at the start of a game.  

Using a 2009 Dallas Museum of Art Dozier travel grant, Lawrence visited Australia this fall to serve as an artist-in-residence with the Monash University Faculty of Art and Design. Visiting artists interact with students, present lectures and leave a work to become part of the Monash Faculty Collection. Lawrence created a video work, “Wind, A Drawing in Disguise,” the first piece in a project exploring the possibilities of time as it changes over the span of the globe.

Lawrence’s work is on display at Dunn and Brown Contemporary in Dallas through Dec. 19 and in a solo exhibition Jan. 16-March 14 at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va.
