On the corner of 11th and Howard streets, imagination takes over to present the Old Market Omaha with a new featured artist each month. However, two artists were featured last month: Judith Anthony Johnston and J.K. Thorsen, whose artwork both fit the concept of the Artists' Cooperative Gallery, "connecting local art and worldly wanderers."
Graduation is a month away, and the final exhibitions of the spring 2012 semester hosted opening receptions Sunday, Apr. 1, in two UNO art galleries. Students were excited and eager to display their work for family, friends and alumni in a gallery setting.
UNO students get involved on campus in the Fine Arts Department in several ways.
Among those works in the current issue of "The Paris Review," which shows artistic interpretations of women by women, are prints made by Wanda Ewing, assistant professor in the University of Nebraska Omaha's College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media. Ewing is the first Omahan ever featured in the magazine, which began in 1953—about 200 issues ago. The artistic works of "Women by Women" range from photography to Ewing's prints on found wallpaper. The collection came close to not including Ewing's work at all.
