Student Thesis Works at UNO Art Gallery Through May 1
Omaha - The works of four University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) BFA thesis candidates will be on display in the UNO Art Gallery Friday, April 10, through Friday, May 1. An opening reception for the exhibition is Friday, April 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
This spring’s thesis exhibition features four installation artists focusing on the interaction of the work, the viewers and the gallery space. The exhibiting artists are Ryan Carroll, Angela Drakeford, Ramanda Fuelberth and Ashley Rodriquez-Reed.
• Ryan Carroll creates a contemplative interactive video installation.
• Angela Drakeford’s installation incorporates hand-typed note cards and paper pulp to focus on the power of verbal communication and the intricate role that words play in our lives.
• Ramanda Fuelberth’s exhibit includes a collection of videos placing her own twist on powerful and universal themes.
• Screenprinter Ashley Rodriguez-Reed’s installation is filled with her sculpted, organic fabric shapes.
Each BFA candidate is also required to present his or her thesis in a public lecture to articulate the work. The lectures are scheduled for Monday, April 27, and Wednesday, April 29, at noon in the UNO Art Gallery.
The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building. The exhibition and lectures are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m., when UNO classes are in session.

UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
