Everthing Old…

For some artists the idea of turning base metals into gold or silver symbolically connects human effort to the cosmos. This alchemical inspiration is found in Jim Krantz GENERATIONS SHARED: A collection of works as tribute to the artist’s late grandfather David Bialac (1905 – 1978). Anderson O’Brien Fine Art in the Old Market presents work by both artists through November 27. The joint exhibition features a shared...

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.

‘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...
