Building Zone

Tom Prinz’s new exhibit, Constructs, at Gallery 72 consists of a mixture of large black and white digital prints, elegant colored collage assemblages with carefully harmonized strips of printed and layered paper, and one painting, done with a plaster knife, which echoes the layered and subtle style seen in all of the other works).  There seems to be a thread moving throughout this exhibit that makes a suggestion...

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...

Get ‘The Works’

The Works, the current exhibit at the RNG Gallery may look a lot different from the outside. At first glance, it looks as if somebody assembled a bunch of farm tools and slapped them on the wall.

Art Harvest

The annual Bemis Center auction has always been one of the most anticipated Metro arts events in the fall, but this year things have changed. The auction, that is, not the anticipation.

The 15th Annual Bemis Gala and Auction, Oct. 26, is still our lead in this autumn’s visual arts preview. But after last year’s less than satisfactory experience for patrons, this fun- and fundraiser has undergone significant...
