Don’t Resist Adult Onset Beatlemania

Most of us would need help from our evil twin to catch all the theater openings the next two weekends. I’ll start with the one that closes quickest, RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, not only because it runs so briefly—8 p.m. Friday and two shows Saturday—but to see how the touring company compares with our home-grown treatment by Billy McGuigan.

Maybe the most striking claim for the John, Paul, George and Ringo...

11-11 show battles artist’s inner self

by Sally Deskins

“Brain is the key that sets you free,” are words by Harry Houdini, early 20th century magician, escapist and skeptic posted on artist Mike Kolker’s wall installation in the back of the New BLK Gallery titled “No Escape From Memory” in this month’s 11-11 solo show by the artist.

The installation piece of wooden panels with various Houdini regalia like this quote, his face, and even a drawing of...

‘Zones’ gets you out of your zone at Peerless Gallery

It’s quite typical to have your space invaded at an art opening—people drinking wine, gossiping in circles, bumping elbows and hovering to see the art on the walls.  It’s quite atypical to have your space encroached on in a gallery by a kinetic sculpture—a remote-control-car driven wooden trailer.

Such is the case for Zones, an exhibit at the Peerless Gallery featuring Minneapolis-based artist Mitchell Dose...

Obermeyer exhibits on Keystone pipeline issue…

Omaha-based editorial cartoonist Neal Obermeyer is showing at The Sydney in Benson opening November 10.  The original work comments on TransCanada’s plans to route the Keystone XL pipeline through Nebraska’s sandhills, with prints available for sale to benefit anti-pipeline efforts. “I'm hoping I can use some of my work to support the efforts of all of the people who are volunteering their time and energy to...

Moving Pictures

Although portraiture is the most popular form of photography, it seldom is given the status of fine art. The highest compliment the practitioner in this medium will likely ever hear is, “Great job, it looks just like her” or “Wow, he’s never looked better.”

         

Which is a shame because while the commercial photographer works hard at his craft to do justice and more with what he has to work with, there...
