Head on down to the Arizona Gallery in the Student Union today between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to view "Recent Paintings by Anthony Pessler." Pessler is an assistant professor of art at ASU and has paintings in the permanent collection at the Tucson Museum of Art, so it should be worth your while to check this out.

The Rotunda Gallery at the Student Union is exhibiting the work of Grace Ciotti today from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. "Variations on a Theme" is the name of this collection of Ciotti's abstract paintings, which are composed of computer generated images layered over with oil paint.
