UNO Spring 2007 Bachelor of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition Opens April 20
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Art Gallery will present the work of six UNO B.F.A. thesis candidates at the Spring 2007 Bachelor of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition. The exhibition will open Friday, April 20, and run through Friday, May 4. An opening reception will be held April 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the gallery.
This spring's thesis exhibition challenges tradition and features the work of Sarah Brogren, Molly Connolly, Shaun Kiel, Alex Myers, Cale Oglesby and Jenny Wagner. Brogren's photography installation of constructed objects examines family history and personal memories. Connolly uses graphic design to inform and expose the realities of the human papilloma virus (HPV). Kiel searches for self-revelation through the refabrication of painting. Myers explores the inherent tension of collage to elicit contemplation and meaning in meaninglessness. Oglesby seeks identity through experimental portrayals of his physical and cerebral self. Wagner's videos investigate time and place, and their impact on her own behavior.
Each B.F.A. candidate in studio art is also required to present a public thesis talk to articulate and defend the philosophical, aesthetic, historical, critical and technical aspects of their work. Brogren, Connolly, Kiel, Myers, Oglesby and Wagner will be joined by bachelor of arts in art history candidates John Herzinger and Abby Sutter in these public presentations. Each art history candidate will present a scholarly paper that addresses critical, creative and theoretical thinking, and analysis of a specialized topic in their area of emphasis. Spring 2007 thesis talks will be held April 23, 25 and 27 from noon to 1 p.m. in the UNO Art Gallery.
The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building. The exhibitions are free, handicapped accessible and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 4 p.m.; Thursday from noon to 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
