Double Vision

Some artists confront nature and the everyday world and illustrate it with all its beauty and mystery intact. Others expose it for all its contradictions and obscurity. In either case, appreciation and interpretation are best left to the viewer.

3D Keyboard Magic

The art of creating sculpture made from preformed objects or materials is a practice running through the history of 20th century art. Omaha based artist Robert Miller has done a turn with this form in his exhibition, Arranged Music, on view through March 29 in the Sunderland Gallery at Saint Cecilia’s Cathedral.
