Art Gallery Preps for Student Exhibition
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Art and Art History presents the Spring 2010 UNO Student Art Exhibition. The show will run Friday, Feb. 26, through Friday, April 2 at the UNO Art Gallery. An opening reception will be held 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 26.
The event is a juried exhibition open to participation by UNO students enrolled in studio art classes. Submitted artworks can be executed in a variety of media, including two-dimensional, three-dimensional and intermedia. Art and Art History majors in UNO’s College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media are also eligible for Bertha Mengedoht Hatz Memorial Scholarship Awards.
The exhibition will also present the Hexagon Installation Program. The facility features a unique, hexagon-shaped gallery, and each spring semester UNO art students compete to create an “installation” in the space. The installation is a site-specific artwork that emphasizes interaction between the viewer and the artwork. This year the Hexagon Installation will feature Amber Labudda. Labudda will use 50,000 copper pennies which will melt together to create a glistening sand painting of shape and substance.
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 and more information can be obtained by calling the gallery at (402) 554-2796 or by emailing Bonnie O’Connell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
