<p>Mirror mosaic installation by artist Ying Zhu in her show, 'Crumbs of Tenderness,' at Lied Gallery at Creighton University</p> ‘Mirror, Mirror’

Exploring the limits of material and reality is nothing new for Omaha installation artist Ying Zhu.  Her art embodies an ambiguous contravention of formal arrangements and interactions intermingled with abundant energy that ultimately creates its own language. 

Zhu’s new show, Crumbs of Tenderness, at the Lied Art Gallery show her experimentation with everyday objects and gives her art a rebellious freedom of...

<p>Atlas of Marks #3 by Roberto Kusterle</p> ‘Rockin’ It’ at MAM

I think its fair to say that over the last couple of years, Modern Arts Midtown, north on Dodge Street from Midtown Crossing, has not only scratched out but unearthed quite a niche for itself in our fair city. MAM's owner Larry Roots has amassed a sizeable roster of talent, from the mid-career and recognized to the fresh and un-discovered that provides for a full calendar of exciting new work from around the region...

<p>A stunning work of art and design by Cedric Hartman, Harvest of Plenty

Fall’s colorful harvest will also include some promising visual arts events and exhibits in October and November with a few already underway here in September.

Besides openings featuring traditional mediums and genres, several venues will offer alternate takes on video,...

<p>Artist Jamie Burmeister brings his Vermin Me sculpture into 21st century with 3D modelling in current MAM show</p> Artists & Models

Larry Roots and his gallery, Modern Arts Midtown, seem to suffer from an embarrassment of riches.  With new and inventive work by the highly regarded “vermin” sculptor Jamie Burmeister at its heart, the current exhibition on view at the gallery until August 30 devotes the rest of the revolving spaces to a smorgasbord of work by other artists, some being shown by a gallery for the first time.

More about this diverse...

<p>Atropos, an edgy, surreal dreamscape painting by Nolan Tredway is featured in his show, Surface Tension in LIncoln's Fuse Coworking gallery.</p> ‘Surface Tension’

Ahh, Nolan Tredway, Lincoln, Nebraska's “golden boy.” It can be said that Tredway is easily one of the region's more recognizable young artists. His work over the last ten years or so has been nothing but consistent as he pushes himself to further develop what seems to be one enormous body of work. 

Most days in our fair community you could throw a stick and hit an "artist" making work using drippy,...

<p>Ric Marchio features handmade musical instruments at Fred Simon Gallery</p> Different Drummers

Ric Marchio and Michael Giron’s new exhibit at the Nebraska Arts Council/ Fred Simon Gallery, which continues to August 22, combines work moving in highly variant directions, so each may appeal to very different audiences. 

Marchio is showing handmade musical instruments, and Giron features two-dimensional experiments benefitted by a bonfire. Giron’s title: “On the Brighter Side of Post-Apocalyptic Minimalism”
