Spring 2006 BFA Thesis Exhibition Opens April 7
Omaha - The Spring 2006 BFA Thesis Exhibition opens Friday, April 7, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). A reception will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the UNO Art Gallery.
The work of Frances Osugi, Brandon Liebig, Kym Johnson Rutledge, Jonathan Sours and Alexia Thiele will be featured.
Osugi's thesis, "Hand Produced Books from the Monku-Monku Press," showcases edition printing in letterpress, woodblock, intaglio and photolithography. "The portraits and stories come from my life and my imagination," she said.
Rutledge's thesis is titled "Who am I? I am Everyman." This series of paintings is based on contemporary characters from "Everyman," a medieval morality play written in the 15th century. "Each character is a personification of a virtue or vice, and each embodies a part of me," Rutledge said. "My painting style expresses the movement of wet paint in order to bring life to a static state, as breath is to the body."
Jonathan D. Sours titled his painting and drawing series "Ten Accounts of Three Figures." It features three figures that are examined and deconstructed through repetition.
The exhibition runs through May 5. The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building. Admission is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are as follows: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, noon to 4 p.m.; Thursday, noon to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 to 5 p.m.
