CEDAR FALLS, Iowa ï¾– The '2002 Department of Art Faculty Exhibition,' originally scheduled to open Friday, Nov. 1, in the University of Northern Iowa's Gallery of Art, has been postponed to a date to be announced. The opening reception, set for 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 4, in the Kamerick Art Building lobby, has also been postponed.

A water valve in a mechanic's closet burst Sunday morning, causing water to flood the entire first floor in the building's south wing. The gallery, the art auditorium and the Department of Art office were among areas affected.

Darrell Taylor, acting director of the UNI Gallery of Art, said he has posted a notice on the gallery's Web site about the delay in the opening and will update it as more information is available. For more information, call (319) 273-6134, or visit
