Fall Exhibition at UNO Art Gallery
Omaha - A Sidelong Glance, an exhibition of recent work by James Bockelman, will be on display in the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Art Gallery from Sept. 3 through Oct. 2. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held Thursday, Sept. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. As part of the Barbara Willson Memorial Lecture Series, Bockelman will give an informal walkthrough in the gallery at 5 p.m.
The exhibition and lecture are free and open to the public.
Bockelman, who earned his MFA degree from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, is associate professor of Art at Concordia University in Seward, Neb., where he has taught for more than 10 years. His work has been shown in Germany, New York and throughout the Midwest, including solo projects at the Sheldon Memorial Museum of Art in Lincoln and the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney. He was awarded the Nebraska Arts Fellowship Merit Award by the Nebraska Arts Council in 2007.
A Sidelong Glance features recent work made of acrylic paint and graphite on paper that suggests his interest in collecting and reworking images, patterns, dreams and experiences. The worked-over surfaces, which consist of scraps and cuts, seek to embody the transient and ephemeral nature of the imagery.
The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building. Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Thursday from 2 to 8 p.m. when university classes are in session.
For more information call (402) 554-2796 or email Kara Wentworth at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The University of Nebraska at Omaha (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.
