‘Wild’ Animals

When it comes to images of children, flowers and animals, most photography hovers between the “sure thing” and the cliché. In Wild: Animals in Contemporary Photography, the current exhibit sponsored by the Moving Gallery, curators Matthias Harder and Maren Polte successfully demonstrate how an ordinary subject can be raised to the level of fine art.

Wild, on display through Sept. 8 at the Artist Cooperative...

‘Log Lines’

When you walk up to the windows of Peerless Gallery, it’s as though you're looking at a framed piece of art. Upon entering, you engage Heidi Bartlett’s canvas. Bartlett, a Nebraska-bred mixed media artist crafted Peerless Gallery into Log Lines via wood, cut paper, deer hide and feathers.

Optical Delusions

Not since the extraordinary Signal Channel exhibition which the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts showcased in 2005, has there been such a display of video art in Omaha as that currently on display in the venue’s Underground.

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.

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...
