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Modern and historical references combine for dramatic contrast in Hardcore Painting: Confessions and Premonitions by Julie Farstad and Jessie Fisher, the UNO Art Gallery's first fall semester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.
