A Sense of Kaneko

Contemporary sculpture seems limitless.  There are no restrictions or boundaries to this form, which can be a caveat of immense freedom.  It cannot infer a singular meaning; contemporary sculpture itself struggles with the distortion of interpretations that the viewer finds within the piece.

Jun Kaneko offers his audience a fresh insight and perspective in his rarely seen and exhibited body of work From the...

‘Objects of My Attention’

Catherine Ferguson: The Objects of My Attention seems at first like a conversation in which the object being discussed is visible but not seen. The photographs and cast bronzes in this current exhibition at Modern Arts Midtown have a dialogue, but the actual glass objects from which they were distilled are not there.

“The original object of her attention has been dispensed with,” Gallery Director Larry Roots...

Shock & Awe

Lincoln artist Jar Schepers is a self-described surrealistic sculptor with a deeply held socio-political point of view (POV).

Bemis Got Change

“They say don’t change the old for the new but I’ve found out this will never do.”

 

There’s a moral in the lines above from the Billy Higgins chestnut “There’ll Be Some Changes Made,” and no arts venue in the Metro knows this more than the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts.

 Within the past year, Bemis has seen the departure of key staff including former Director Mark Masuoka, Chief Curator Hesse McGraw...

‘I Can Grow Tall’

The 1960s art world found ‘ideas expressed by words’ taking on as much significance as ‘images painted on canvas’. Metro area artist Angela Drakeford continues this tradition in the exhibition I Can Grow Tall, presently on view at the Bemis Center’s Carver Bank location in North Omaha. A UNO graduate, Drakeford’s interest in text-based work has been the focus of her studio practice for the past several years.

“I...
