‘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.

About a dozen tree logs line the entrance, descending from about eight feet to about three feet, welcoming you in. High upon...

‘Trace Elements’

“Art is always material first.” Kirk Varnedoe

 Whether considering the material of which it’s made, which Varnedoe does, or the material it contains, Modern Arts Midtown contributes to the conversation with Graceann Warn’s Trace Elements, new encaustic paintings on panel, now on view at the gallery through August 4, 2012.

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...

‘Interference’

The vibrancy of color and surface in Lisa Tubach’s Interference are an enticing invitation to visit Anderson O’Brien Fine Art in the Old Market in June. This current exhibit’s title contains multiple references which yield a satisfying blend of form and content.  

“As a painter my work has a lot of ambiguity,” Tubach said. “The compositions have a level of complexity addressing the hidden dynamic in the beauty...
