Pottery such as this piece of wood salt fired stoneware, prints, photos and even living room furniture will give a glimpse into the life and work of longtime University of North Texas regents professor Elmer Taylor. The potter’s retrospective exhibition at the University of North Texas Art Gallery opens Tuesday and runs through Nov. 10. “Welcome to My World, 1972-2012” will feature Taylor’s ceramic works created over the last 40 years, photographs of Taylor, works by former students and other artists who have influenced him, and 1940s-era handmade Japanese living room furniture from his home. An opening reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 11 and an artist’s reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 13 in the UNT Art Gallery in the Art Building, one block west of Mulberry and Welch streets.
