<p>Artists Josh Powell and Kim Reid Kuhn collaborate on one of Bemis Underground's last shows, Underground, History

Well, it’s official. In case you missed it, last month, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts unceremoniously removed the signage from its former Underground entrance, after the former venue lay dormant for more than a year.

A mainstay of alternative artistic curiosity and invention since its inception in 2006, the Underground’s mission was “to support exceptional talent through exhibitions and programming which...

<p><em>Kent C. Behrens: New Works is currently on display until Jan. 15, 2015 in the Garden of the Zodiac Gallery in the Old Market Passageway.</em></p> Flower Power

In his current show organized by the nomadic Moving Gallery of the Old Omaha Association the photographs of Kent C. Behrens: New Works strike me as exactly what one might expect to find at the end of the creaky hallway on the main level of the Old Market passageway. 

After passing the flurry of saffron and magenta hanging in the windows of Souq, one arrives at the Garden of the Zodiac Sculpture Garden and Gallery...

HOLIDAY CHEER WARMS UP THE HOLIDAY

The Rose Theater has a marvelous production of a seasonal favorite bound to delight everyone, young and old. I find it the classiest, most polished, professional-quality presentation I’ve seen there in the one year I’ve been attending. Of course, the company already has a winner in the script, a stage re-creation of Jean Shepherd’s A Christmas Story, the beloved 1983 movie. This comes decorated with jolly, colorful...

First United Methodist Church.

The show is The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate...

<p>2014 Survey: Omaha Artists shows at the W. Dale Clark Pulblic Library gallery through Dec. 31, 2014.</p> Check Out the Art

Yo, Omaha artists! We really get along well, don't we? Sure, there's this and that but on the whole we are a large and supportive group. Take the group show The Science Fair from a few years back as an example.

Nearly 100 artists and musicians showed at Urban Storage over the course of two weekends complete with man-made tequila-soaked beaches, virgins sacrificed to volcanoes, block-sized video installations and a...

<p>Jeff King's Many Faces

Hydra, the current exhibit at RNG Gallery in Council Bluffs, is an all-portrait presentation of recent work by Jeff King and Eric Baughman.  With both artists creating in the same genre, it makes for a unified presentation despite certain stylistic variations.

Jeff King describes his art as mostly Expressionistic, where Baughman’s work veers toward a more Pop Art approach.  The original art movement of...
