Works by May Art Graduates on Display April 1-May 6
Omaha - Works by Department of Art and Art History Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) and Bachelor of Art in Studio Arts (BASA) May graduates at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will be featured in the final exhibition of the spring 2011 semester at the UNO Art Gallery.
Steven Schmiedeskamp’s series of photographs titled Ethereal is one of three theses presented in completion of BFA graduation requirements.
“Growing up in Nebraska,” Schmiedeskamp said, “I remember many days tornado sirens would sound and we would hide in basements and bathrooms; but to this day I have yet to see an actual tornado. Because of this, weather of such magnitude and power seem surreal, almost nonexistent. My photography tries to explore this idea by creating surreal images of events that never truly happened.”
Two graphic design BFA theses will also be on exhibit: Layla Reyna’s poster series titled The Dead Don’t Lie and Kate Harris large format book titled It Is What It Is … Or So It Seems.
Recent paintings, sculptures and graphic design work by several BASA May graduates will be shown concurrently. The public is invited to an opening reception on Friday, April 1, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The exhibition will run through 1 p.m. on Friday, May 6.
The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building on the west end of the UNO campus at 6001 Dodge St. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. In addition, appointments at other times are encouraged. All events are free and open to the public, and the gallery is accessible to people with disabilities.
