The work of a renowned photographer and works from several dozen of Nebraska’s art educators will open the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Art Gallery’s 2015-2016 season beginning Friday, Aug. 28.
A public reception will mark the exhibit’s opening. The reception will run from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building on UNO’s Dodge Campus.
The centerpiece of the showcase is a collection of four photographs by Sandy Skoglund, a surrealist artist who uses photographs to document her work.Since the late 1970s, Skoglund has photographed elaborate, ephemeral sets that she builds using carefully controlled color and common materials. The photographs have earned international attention.
The 2015 Nebraska Art Teachers’ Association (NATA) Juried Exhibition will also be on display. The collection features 48 works by 31 art educators from across the state. Juror’s awards for the NATA show will be announced at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 19.
Both exhibitions will remain on view through Thursday, Oct. 1.
Exhibition hours are 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Saturday, September 19, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The gallery encourages appointments as needed for individuals and groups. For more information, call 402.554.2796 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to having her work featured at UNO, Skoglund will also give the NATA Conference keynote address at the Joslyn Witherspoon Concert Hall on Friday, Sept. 18 at 9:45 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.
