Los Outsiders curatorial collective presents Gently Fried: An Exhibition in Three Parts. The collective includes: Jaime Salvador Castillo (BFA in Studio Art, 2005), Michael Anthony García, Robert Jackson Harrington, and Hector Hernandez.

From the press release:

At its heart, "Gently Fried" is about the rapidly changing face of Austin and the  voices that are transformed by its growth. Los Outsiders aim to foster a dialogue within the city and its art scene, to both activate voices that are part of an essential conversation and start a creative cross pollination in the scene in Austin.The main themes explored in the exhibition are change, relationships, house/home, and community.

The exhibition will be on view April 18 – June 13, 2015 and a symposium will take place on May 23, 2015.

Alumni presenting work in the exhibition include Jill Bedgood (MFA in Studio Art, 1983); Candace Briceno (BFA in Visual Art Studies, 1994); Susi Brister (BA in Studio Art, 2001); Megan Stroech (BFA in Studio Art, 2008); and James Huizar (BFA in Studio Art, 2007) and Claudia Zapata (BA and MA in Art History, 2005/2009) of Puro Chingon Collective.
