Joslyn Art Museum hosts a special Valentine’s Day event

With Valentine's Day slowly creeping up, it would be wise for all of you procrastinators to start planning now.  Otherwise, you'll find yourself stuck waiting 30 minutes for a table at Applebee's.  Or, in a movie theatre sitting rows away from your date, because you got the only two seats left in the theatre.
This year, beat the crowds and woo your valentine with a not-so-typical night of romance.  The Joslyn Art Museum will be hosting a special night of food, cocktails and art on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 6pm.

Contemporary paintings reflections of modern and classical art

Modern and historical references combine for dramatic contrast in Hardcore Painting: Confessions and Premonitions by Julie Farstad and Jessie Fisher, the UNO Art Gallery's first fall semester exhibition. The exhibit, which features contemporary paintings, began Aug. 26 and will end Sept. 28.

Farstad and Fisher are both assistant professors of painting at the Kansas City Art Institute. As a feminist painter, Farstad portrays influences of popular culture and psychoanalysis of girlhood drama in her work. In contrast, Fisher's figurative painting and use of rich color resembles the late Renaissance era.
