Group Benefits, Ltd

Without a strong curatorial guide, group art shows must rely on their diversity as well as the quality of their work in order for individual pieces to stand out. The current show at Hot Shops is no exception as four artists compete for attention in this very diverse exhibit.

‘Secret Codes & Body Feelings’

Victoria Hoyt’s new exhibit of water-based paintings, Secret Codes and Body Feelings, is at RNG Gallery in Council Bluffs, through April 6.

Opposites Attract

It’s not uncommon for a husband and wife to share an interest and talent in the visual arts. After all, many couples display such in theater, music and literature, let alone in the field of sports.
