Art can be provocative. It can be powerful. It can be beautiful. The "Les Femmes Folles: Voice" exhibit, co-curated by Sally Deskins and Megan Loudon Sanders and currently on display at The New Blk (black) at 1213 Jones St., embodies all of these things.
UNO's art gallery, room 219 in the Weber Fine Arts building, displays work from artists of all levels: undergraduates, graduate students and professional artists. Right now, the gallery is showcasing art by UNO faculty artists.
The latest exhibit at UNO's art gallery features works by undergraduate students in the departments of Fine Arts and Art History. The juried exhibition was presided over by local artist and Creighton professor of graphic design, Tim Guthrie.
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.
"Unhung: Created by Design," a new exhibit at the H. Don & Connie J. Osborn Family Gallery, has a variety of pieces, including photographs and 3-D imagery.
