Talking Pictures

The traveling photo exhibit, Conversations on a Bus, is an original, charming, and gripping tribute to a city where beauty is found in many unexpected places such as in the conversations of everyday people.  The show, currently on display at its last site, RNG Gallery in Council Bluffs, through March 3rd,  consists of ordinary people discussing extraordinary things about their life and experiences all while riding...

Photo Synthesis

As mentioned in a recent review of the OEAA Visual Arts Nominee Show at Hot Shops, there wasn’t a single photography exhibit, solo or otherwise, nominated for an award this year from the past period of eligibility, Sept. 30, 2011-Aug. 31, 2012.

Not that there aren’t significant photography artists in the Metro area. Larry Ferguson’s idealized images of Nature, James Hendrickson’s found photos of the Metro’s back...

Fall from Grace

“Beauty is as Beauty Does”, and if the doing is using language as the basis from which to explore states of being, no one does it better than Nebraska-based, Chinese artist Ying Zhu. No Strings Attached, on view at the RNG Gallery in Council Bluffs has already started to come down.

Odds-on Favorites
