Faith in Art

Envisioning Spirituality, a new exhibit that opens today, Dec. 5, at Hot Shops Art Center, is truly a “group effort” curated by artist Dorothy Tuma. Organized in conjunction with Project Interfaith, the exhibit features more than 30 area artists devoted to “exploring religious and spiritual identities through multi-media.”

Shock & Awe

Lincoln artist Jar Schepers is a self-described surrealistic sculptor with a deeply held socio-political point of view (POV). Yet, as Schepers’ current exhibit, Materialization at the Garden of the Zodiac in the Old Market Passageway clearly illustrates, his idealism and social conscience are exceeded only by his wildly creative imagination and artisanship. It’s the latter that most likely will resonate with...
