Shimmering ‘Glimpses’

Artist Susan Knight brings to Midwesterners an ocean of  sensuality and insight  with “Glimpses” at RNG Gallery thru July 8, the second time she has shown with the gallery, the first in the new Council Bluffs location.

Knight transforms RNG via paper into an environment of beachy ease—flowing paper; twisting waves, cool colors and moving shadow shapes formed by the sun.

The display of her intricately hand-cut...

Somewhere Over the Bemis

My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky. - Wordsworth

This weekend, if everything goes as “planned,” a universally shared phenomenon will appear in all its colorful glory above the five-story Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, twice a day for 20 minutes each, until Sept. 12, 2012.

Man-made, but no less poetic in their creation or appreciation, these rainbows will appear because of a complex...

Well-crafted Collaboration

When approaching Peerless Gallery, it appears there is meat hanging from the ceiling. Opening the door, one finds instead a set of striking red, orange and pink oval forms, about twenty of them suspended near the large windows of the gallery, titled “Whisper and Murmur,” crafted of ripped fabric by artist Sarah Kolar.

This Union for Contemporary Art Fellow’s sculpture is an apt introduction to Material Matters,...

‘Big Sky Paintings’

Omaha native Vincent Hron has made his mark in the larger art world. The Bloomsburg University Professor returns to Omaha with his paintings of post-modern sublime, now on view at Anderson O’Brien Gallery in the Old Market. He brings with him a conceptually interesting and technically skilled body of work.
