<p>  Sculptor Ron Parks</p> Heavy Metal

Omaha sculptor Ron Parks came to art in a rather circuitous manner.  Growing up on a farm in Pierce County, Nebraska in the 1940s, he would have been like most rural kids--handy with tools and able to problem-solve with recalcitrant machinery.  After high school, he joined the Navy, and spent those years after training as a mechanic working on airplanes, adding to his ability to tinker and fix machines, and...

Opposites Attract

It’s not unusual for a Chinese artist to interpret or integrate the principal of yin-yang. After all, it is a philosophical belief in a duality of opposite but interdependent forces endemic to Asian culture in all forms.

Opposites Attract

Paramnesia may no longer be a one-time household word in the Metro art scene, and the nomadic arts group, Echotrope “is in hiatus” according to its co-founders Jody Boyer and Russ Nordman, but the impact of each continues to influence these artists’ vision and points of view.

The former was a time-based, site-specific installation by Boyer and Nordman that helped jumpstart the wonderfully experimental and...
