NACOGDOCHES, Texas – An exhibition of works by Peter Andrew, professor of graphic design in Stephen F. Austin State University’s School of Art, is showing at Kilgore College through Sept. 25.

He has extensive graphic design experience with Houston area firms. With more than 50 solo exhibitions to his credit, Andrew also owned an art gallery in downtown Nacogdoches for 10 years.
