UNL juried art competition…Omaha artist showing abroad…

LUX Center ceramic shows…Sheldon’s new magazine…

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln's Department of Art and Art History is sponsoring the Nebraska National Collegiate Juried Art Exhibition to feature the work of the best undergraduate student artists from across the country. Submissions in ceramics, photography and printmaking are being accepted through May 31 at https://unlart.slideroom.com.

Omaha-based artist Janelle McKain’s drawing “Hive of Perception” was exhibited in THE SOCIETY FOR ART OF IMAGINATION, an international curated show featuring 58 artists from 22 countries at Phantasten Museum Wien in Vienna. This month, her surreal work is being featured in CADAVRE EXQUIS, Expanded (“Exquisite Corpse”), a curated show at Kulter Gallery in Amsterdam, featuring work by international artists of the collaborative movement where artists build on each other’s work. McKain’s art was also featured in the May issue of CATAPULT, an art magazine out of Louisville, Kentucky. Surrealvisions.com.

In Lincoln, the LUX Center recently opened Women’s Work: Seven Studio Potters showcasing stoneware and porcelain by some of the best-known potters in the country exploring a variety of forms and surfaces. The exhibit runs through June 30. June 1, Arrangement opens, featuring LUX Artist-in-Residence Naomi Mostkoff’s decorative ceramic work marrying form and function using her toted technique of “pinching.” Luxcenter.org.

Peggy Jones, an assistant professor in the Department of Black Studies and a member of the Women's and Gender Studies faculty at UNO, has been named a contributing editor for a new arts magazine – artland – published by UNL’s Sheldon Art Assocation. The magazine launched in April “to create and promote a community of artists and arts organizations by providing a forum for dialogue and news.” Sheldonartmuseum.org.
