UNO Art Gallery Welcomes BFA Thesis Exhibition
Omaha - The work of two University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) BFA thesis candidates will be on display in the UNO Art Gallery Friday, Nov. 13 through Friday, Dec. 11.
An opening reception is planned for Friday, Nov. 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This fall’s thesis exhibition features two artists focusing on illustrating realities, whether based in our world or another. Exhibiting artists are Jaime Heit and Emily Truax.
• Jaime Heit displays her relief prints illustrating the stories of life through seemly disconnected memories that tell a greater tale.
• Emily Truax shows her prints and installation creating new experiences based in an alternate reality through the window of video games.
Each BFA candidate is also required to present his or her thesis in a public lecture to articulate the art work. The lectures will be held at noon Wednesday, Dec. 2 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 Monday and Wednesday: 10 a.m. to noon; Tuesday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Thursday: 2 to 8 p.m., when university classes are in session.
For more information, contact Bob Carlson: (402) 554-2603 or firstname.lastname@example.org
