Contemporary poet Matthew Zapruder read in the Dodge Rooms of the Milo Bail Student Center on Nov. 3. He visited UNO as a part of the Missouri Valley Reading Series, which welcomes poets as well as authors of fiction and non-fiction to travel and read their works.
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.
January marks the beginning of the UNO faculty art exhibit.
In a show that only happens every two years, instructors show their latest projects and pieces they have been working on.
The exhibit features media from printmaking and ceramics to interactive digital games and jewelry, from 18 artists.
It's difficult sometimes to make an argument for photographic art. After all, it's a field that mirrors reality, meant to replicate life via the "human experience" channel. Far too often, though, "the human experience" theme is portrayed in photos lacking imagination, making it more akin to "the dry, uninteresting experience."
The latest photography exhibit at Polyester gallery, 1618 Harney St., is anything but dry or uninteresting. The show, titled "If These Walls Could Talk," (showing through Nov. 27) offers a refreshing glimpse of human existence in private moments.
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.
