CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Gallery of Art will present the exhibitions "Gather the Folds of This Veil and Scatter Them" and "Roman-roamin’" in the Kamerick Art Building (KAB).

"Gather the Folds" artists John Siblik and Elissa Cox Wenthe will present a lecture at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3, in KAB Room 111, which will be followed by an opening reception in the KAB South lobby. The lecture is funded by a donation from Upper Iowa University in Fayette. The exhibition will be open from Monday, Aug. 24 through Saturday, Sept. 19.

"Roman-roamin’" is a UNI permanent art collection exhibition that can be viewed Monday, Sept. 28, through Saturday, Oct. 24; Monday, Nov. 2, through Monday, Nov. 30; and Thursday, Dec. 10, through Saturday, Dec. 19. UNI professor of art history Charles Adelman and gallery director Darrel Taylor will curate the exhibition. The concept of the exhibition is Roman themes through time and will include works by Ronald King, Edward Steichen, Amy Worthen and Joseph Pennell.

Ancient Roman artifacts from the UNI Museum will also be presented, most notably Roman glass and coins, which help illustrate the vast influence of this culture over time both geographically and aesthetically.

All events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, noon to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday, and by appointment. The gallery will be closed Monday, Sept. 7, for Labor Day.
