Featured artists explore Synergy in November
11/1/2016 5:00:00 PM UTC - 11/27/2016 12:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Four artists exhibit works in a variety of mediums in November. Artists Nicki Byram, Cindy Mathiasen, Ann O’Hara, and Margie Schimenti will be showing from November 1 through November 26, 2016. They will host a First Friday opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. November 4, 2016.     Nicki Byram, a Council Bluffs painter, is showing watercolor paintings, most of which are painted on Yupo paper.  Yupo allows the painter to use the paint in both additive and subtractive methods. Her work is intuitive and abstract.  These paintings are suggestive of the energy between the sun and the earth, warmth and cold, land and water, male and female, love and anger, our life journey and the possible journey hereafter.  All this, in synergy, helps us appreciate how everything is interconnected and greater because of it.      Ann O’Hara, a Lincoln artist, uses soft pastels, which she feels are unlike any other medium.  ”When I hold a pastel in my hand during the painting process the synergistic connection between me and my work is palpable”. She loves vibrant colors, and the way light dances in the subjects she chooses to paint. The pastels reflect the “Earth Force” behind her Nebraska landscapes, and the seascapes from Maine where she spends her summers.    Cindy Mathiasen is a Council Bluffs painter, working in a variety of media including oil, acrylic and gold leaf.  Her work explores the synergistic relationship between humanity, oneself, others and nature. This connection presents the idea that there is always more under the surface and off the page. Across the diverse topics and media, the overriding theme is connection to oneself and to one another. She likens her home studio, crowded with ideas and energy, to a seed in the ground.  Who knows when it will begin to grow?    Margie Schimenti, an Omaha conceptual artist challenges conventional ideas by her choices of and uses of materials.  She creates minimalist assemblages using wood, ceramic, paint, wire and paper.  Many of these materials are found objects, and or multiples of them.  They confuse the viewer by their unusual juxtapositions. Their synergy is obvious as they, in concert, force the viewer to think critically about the meaning of art.    Starting more than 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery shows the work of strong professional artists from the region. Members of the Artists’ Co-op conduct educational and cultural outreach activities, and maintain and staff a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing.

AYURVEDA is a system of healing that has its roots in ancient India, Tibet and Nepal and is the oldest intact healing system in existence on our planet. Ayuh means life and veda means wisdom; Ayurveda literally means the wisdom of life. According to Ayurveda every individual is a microcosm of the cosmos; the outer life and the inner life are reflections of one another.

We experience health and joy when we understand and align with both our individual constitutions as well as the natural rhythms of nature. Ayurveda gives us a framewor k through which to understand the needs of the body and psyche in the form of the Subtle Elements (earth, water, fire, air, space) and the Doshas (our constitution) (Vata, Pitta, Kapha).

"Artober" features new work by artists Adams, Daharsh, Dendinger and Sterner
10/4/2016 5:00:00 PM UTC - 10/30/2016 11:00:00 PM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Four artists will share their work in “Artober,” which runs October 4-30, 2016. The artists will host a First Friday opening reception 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. October 7, 2016.
 
Iowa Painter Duane Adams has had the idea of doing a series of paintings of “artists at work” on his mind for quite some time. Duane’s new work presents artists working in different media- ceramic, glassblowing, painting, sculpture, and mixed media. “The object of the painting was to show the concentration and the intensity of the artists at their trade.  The paintings are not about the artist but about the art of creating.”
 
Glassblower Frank Daharsh enjoys working with glass because of its versatility as a medium to express his ideas. Glass has advantages of transparency and opacity, which allow the light to be manipulated through its use of color, texture, and layering of multiple colors and patterns. “Glass is a fascinating medium that has the most challenges but is also the most rewarding!”
 
Painter Hope Dendinger recently visited Rome, The Vatican City, Naples, and the Island of Capri.  Dendinger was fascinated and inspired by the rich history, art, architecture, and culture of Rome.  This series of work is created with bright colors in an abstract contemporary style that presents the well-known monuments, such as: the Colosseum, Pantheon, Appian Way, Aqueduct Park and The Vatican City.
 
Artist Dax Sterner uses salvaged wood and paint on canvas to create unique works of art. His pieces display a variety of influences and inspirations, from science to science fiction, from the grandeur of the natural world to the strange images in his own head. His use of repurposed wood is done not only to celebrate the previous life of those salvaged materials, but to also draw attention to the wastefulness of our modern society.

Costa Rica trip inspires "Pura Vida" with work by 6 artists
9/1/2016 5:00:00 AM UTC - 9/25/2016 5:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
New people, terrain, plants, animals, colors, textures and ideas experienced in recent travel have inspired “Pura Vida: Impressions of Costa Rica,” an exhibit and sale of new work by five artists who visited Costa Rica early this year. Their trip was part of an artistic and cultural exchange coordinated through the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery.    Lori Elliott-Bartle, Cheri Ginsburg, Linda Hatfield, Judith Anthony Johnston and Katrina Methot-Swanson are members of the Co-op who made the trip, which was originated by Elisa Morera, a Costa Rican native and incoming member to the gallery.     The show will run Sept. 1 - Sept. 25, 2016 at Hot Shops Art Center, 1301 Nicholas Street in Omaha. The group will host an opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, 2016. They also will host the following events:   Demonstrations, printmaking workshop (all ages) and studio tours 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016   Demonstrations and studio tours 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016   Drinking in bright colors, feeling warm temperatures and tropical breezes, seeing unfamiliar plants, animals and terrains of Costa Rica in February inspired Lori Elliott-Bartle to make a series of light-hearted paintings that feature texture and vivid color. Using cold wax medium and oil colors, she has painted views based on San Jose barrios, the Caribbean Sea and village homes.    Cheri Ginsburg’s idealistic renderings in pastel and pen & ink invite the viewer to journey with her through the Costa Rican landscape, exploring the diverse and extravagant flora and fauna, as well as insights into the everyday lives of the people of Costa Rica.   “Leaving a snowy winter and landing in a tropical paradise was jolting to me,” says artist Linda Hatfield, who paints with acrylics on wood panels and highlights with pyrography (word-burning) to portray her distinctive impressions. “Two full weeks of exploring - over 900 miles - of the beauty of Costa Rica was inspiring and overwhelming. All five senses were on overload and the work that came from that is really in the form of fragments. Feelings in the form of colors and shapes have been my expression of the adventure so far.”   “Spiritual inspiration comes in many forms,” says painter Judith Anthony Johnston. “The sacred churches of Costa Rica have inspired my newest work. I have used gold leaf with charcoal, inks and resin to create contemporary icons.”   Painter Katrina Methot-Swanson says, “I was truly inspired by the culture, colors and people of Costa Rica. The variety of landscapes was wonderful, from the ocean to the tropical rainforest. I wanted to express the colors and textures that I experienced on this trip, so I have combined panels to make various sizes of paintings and am using oil and cold wax medium with palette knives to get more texture in the paintings.”    Costa Rican artist Elisa Morera says, “I have taken this opportunity to express my feelings about the colors of my country's tropical flowers, which bloom throughout the year. In these small works I capture the intensity of living and vibrant floral colors, always surrounded by intense greens and blood reds. The textures in my three-dimensional work represent a tropical forest.”   Starting more than 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery shows the work of strong professional artists from the region. Members of the Artists’ Co-op conduct educational and cultural outreach activities, and  maintain and staff a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing.

Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Three artists exhibit works in fiber, oil and glass during July. Painter Joan Fetter, weaver Agneta Gaines, and glass artist Bob Schipper show their “Summer Moods” June 28 through July 31, 2016. They will host a First Friday opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 1, 2016.   Painter and longtime Co-op member Joan Fetter says, “My medium is color translated by oil and various media onto canvas or wood panels. My work is realistic with some abstract elements.”   Summer is Agneta Gaines’ favorite time of year, and she says, “Colorful, light and airy are the ideas that come to mind when I hear the words  ‘Summer Moods.’  I have kept those ideas in mind when planning and executing these new pieces.  As always, I try to manipulate the surface of my weavings with natural plant materials, which also are being manipulated to some degree. The combinations are meant to convey joy.”   Bob Schipper interacts and sculpts with light in his glass pieces. “My fascination with the effect of light as it related to the transparency and texture of glass grows with time.” Schipper mixes cut, beveled, hand-blown, fused and slumped glass in his copper-foiled constructions.    Starting more than 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery shows the work of strong professional artists from the region. Members of the Artists’ Co-op conduct educational and cultural outreach activities, and  maintain and staff a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing.

Gallery goes international featuring Costa Rican artis

Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
In the second part of an artistic and cultural exchange, gallery members will host artists visiting from Costa Rica and will display their work during June. There will be a First Friday opening reception 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 3, 2016, and several of the visiting artists will be available to talk about their work. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 4, the artists will help lead a printmaking workshop suitable for all ages.   The first stage of the exchange took place several months ago, when five artist-members traveled from Omaha to Costa Rica and displayed their work during February at the Sophia Wanamaker Gallery, Centro Cultural in the San Jose metropolitan area. Judith Anthony Johnston has worked with Elisa Morera for more than two years to coordinate aspects of the exchange with expectations that it will develop and grow.    Exhibiting artists will be:   Isidro Con Wong was born in Costa Rica in 1931, the son of Chinese immigrants. He studied in China, Macau and Hong Kong and incorporates elements of his ancestral culture in his artwork. Other inspirations for his work come from his family farm in Costa Rica. After working in several jobs, at the age of 40 he decided to focus full-time on art. Con Wong has participated in many exhibitions around the world, including the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Taiwan, Panama, Colombia and Venezuela. He has been nominated for prestigious prizes such as Monaco’s International Prize for Contemporary Art. He has collectors from around the world.    Elisa Morera spent most of her  life in Costa Rica. As a young woman she studied over a five-year period with five painting masters from whom she  learned a wide variety of techniques and styles including still life, landscapes, impressionism, hyper-realism and abstraction. In works displayed here, Morera focuses on details and fragments of flowers and fruit, as well as surrealistic pieces that evoke emotion in a theatrical scene. In her portrayals of the human figure, she focuses on eyes, faces and torsos as she offers a glimpse into the inner lives of her subjects.   Martha Espinoza is a self-taught artist who began her journey observing and sketching works of the great masters throughout history. She leaned toward realistic art, but her work changed in 2011 following her husband’s death. She began to explore abstract symbolism and creates work based on an imagined universe where she combines geometric elements, abstract shapes and symbols. Her paintings are like a puzzle or game in which her figures flow and live together in perfect harmony. She evokes a vision of an ideal world to create awareness about reality and aspects of daily life.      Beatriz Bearden was born in the Costa Rica capital, San Jose, and moved to the United States as a young girl. Extensive traveling has allowed her to observe the range and diversity of humanity, noticing subtleties of skin tones and character. She searches for the essence and captures moments of strength and gentleness of her subjects.    Monica Lizano was born in San Jose, Costa Rica and studied at the University of Costa Rica. She works as a freelance artist in painting and graphic design. In her artwork, she uses fish as a symbol to convey energy carried in feelings at every phase of life. With strong colors, she send vibrations of happiness, sadness, serenity…often harmonious, many are contradictory and irreverent. With free stories and textures, her abstractions create magic to attract attention and tell stories.    Starting 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery has always had at its core strong professional artists from the region. Members of the Artists’ Co-op conduct educational and cultural outreach activities, and  maintain and staff a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing. Monthly opening receptions provide opportunities to meet member artists and learn more about their work.

The Art and Science of Self-Healing with Thought

Posted By: OM Center (Omaha Healing Arts Center)
A rare opportunity! Second time only in the United States after 15 years! 
OPEN to ALL.. Laypersons or therapists
This workshop is for the individual self-healing. The Art and Science of Self-Healing with Thought
An evening body-mind workshop 
with Dr. Alain Abehsera DO, MD 
Osteopath and Connective Therapy Creator visiting from France  Come to ether.. Sunday Or Monday...
Sunday, June 12 • 6:30pm • $25 adv/$30 door 
Monday, June 13 • 7pm • $25 adv/$30 door Dr. Alain Abehsera's work represents a major step in our understanding of the relationship between matter and thought within the medical world. HOW OFTEN DO YOU LISTEN TO YOUR BODY? Really listen and connect? Learn the fundamentals of self-listening in 3D! At one point in his life, Dr Alain Abehsera, an osteopath and physician, had to solve personal pathologies for which he had no available conventional or unconvention- al answer. They appeared as the usual chain of seem- ingly unrelated pathological states that come with life or aging. Some trivial, some more severe. Dr. Abehsera decided to apply the osteopathic treatment he had been applying to his patients on himself. He had learned to practice listening techniques, where the prac- titioner quietly listens to the unfolding of body patterns with his hands and mind. He began doing it on himself, becoming his own patient and doctor. Dr Abehsera real- ized that using these profound osteopathic techniques on oneself is more powerful than what he had access to with the complementary medicine model. Dr Abehsera will give 2  three- hour workshops at OM Center. Each workshop is stand alone, however you're welcome to come to both! Within this perspective, therapists become their own patients, before they can help others. Learn the principles:
1) Understand value of awareness of the body feelings (by tuning into your personal internal sensations through this 3D model)
2) Translate or TRANSMUTE? the feelings and sensations in the 3 dimensions of space, within their anatomical background
3) Follow the evolution of the feelings and sensations (symptom) over a given portion of time.  Dr. Abehsera will share:
• his personal experience
• teach unusual medical history
• teach principles and applications of Connective Therapy
• how to access the primary healing relationship toward one’s own body and mind. Dr. Alain Abehsera was born in Rabat, Morocco, 1951. He received his primary and secondary education in France and enrolled at the British College of Osteopathy and Naturopathy, London. He graduated with the rst full-time class of the European School of Osteopathy (Maidstone), where he became Lecturer in Principles and Practice of Osteopathy (French and English Branch).  He then took up medical Studies at the Paris Medical School. His thesis was on The History of Osteopathy, and won a Bronze Medal. He studied General Philosophy at Sor- bonne, Paris. In 1984, he emigrated to Israel, where he was actively involved in research and development in the connectivity in the various languages of the world. Dr. Alain Abehsera was the founding President of the Israeli Osteopathic Association (IAO) and worked at the Complementary Medicine Unit, Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem. He was also the founding Director of Israeli School of Connective Osteopathy. He has translated (into French) and commented on the main classics of Osteopathy: Fryette, Woodall, Mitchell, Korr and wrote numerous articles. At one point, he also went to live in the streets, refused to teach or treat for a long period for fear of doing harm, searching, through these and other ways, about healing. He currently resides in France.

Three artists will share their work May 3 - May 29, 2016, and will host a First Friday opening reception 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. May 6, 2016.   Cheri Ginsburg works on location and in her studio from images captured through her camera lens during her extensive travels. In addition to exhibiting work at the Artists’ Co-op, Ginsburg shows work in Santa Fe, N.M., on the East Coast and internationally. She is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America, has had her work displayed by pastel manufacturer Pan Pastel® at an international convention and was juried into the prestigious 27th International Association of Pastel Societies Exhibition.   Linda Hatfield uses acrylic paints on wood panels that she highlights with pyrography (word-burning) to portray her distinctive impressions of everyday events. She will show images from her long-running dog series, as well as pieces from her "Talk" Series. She also will show work from the "Friends with Hats" series. “These are new explorations and are a bit different from my past work,” she says. “I am still fascinated with faces, both human and canine, and this show is proof of that.”   Photographer Alan R. Smith says, “There is a lot to appreciate in Nebraska. The landscape of Nebraska is more diverse than even long-time Nebraska residents realize. While there are no towering mountain ranges, or picturesque coastlines, there is still much to experience and enjoy. I find that capturing the beauty and uniqueness of Nebraska is both challenging and rewarding.”   Starting 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery has always had at its core strong professional artists from the region. Members of the Artists’ Co-op conduct educational and cultural outreach activities, and  maintain and staff a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing.

The artists will host a First Friday opening reception 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 1, 2016.   Sean Akers creates mixed media designs in carved wood, paint, and metal. His influences include childhood, play, social issues and the natural world. “Work featured in this show emphasizes strength,” he says, “strength in character, facing others, and standing up for your beliefs. The centerpiece of this show is a shield which is representative of individuals who dare to be authentic in a sometimes judgmental and dismissive world.” .  dar’s paintings for this show explore abstract landscapes and some are based on items found near her home. She says, “I have a big swing in the timber in my back yard and I am pushing and pulling it with my paint, texture, surface and abstraction."   Painter Jerry Jacoby creates paintings based on “landscape and beyond” in pastel, oil or acrylic inks, all of which will be represented in this show.    Starting 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery has always had at its core strong professional artists from the region.

'Mind’s Eye of an Artist': paintings, sculpture, jewelry
3/1/2016 6:00:00 PM UTC - 3/27/2016 3:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Four artists will share their work in “Mind’s Eye of an Artist,” which runs March 1-26, 2016. The artists will host a First Friday opening reception 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. March 4, 2016. The gallery will be closed on Easter Sunday, March 27.    Judith Anthony Johnston reflects upon the ways symbols can connect to personal truths. In her mixed media pieces she uses combinations of waxes, pigments, oils, charcoals, inks, metal leaf and resin to explore themes of spirit, purpose and redemption.    Pamela King selects distinctive stones as the focal point for each piece of her contemporary jewelry. “Each stone has a story to share,” she says. “I present the story by choosing the stage, environment and additional characters. Most of my stones are one-of-a-kind, and many are fossils of plants and animals.” In her new collection, Pam has simplified settings and has used a single stone for each piece.   Sculptor James Lepert finds beauty in all aspects of nature: a bird taking flight, a yellow flower peeking out of a snow in early spring, the burst of reds and oranges in the fall, or cute, fuzzy babies who warm our hearts. “Through my mind and hands I portray some of this beauty held in a single moment,” he says, “to allow you to see and feel the emotion and beauty as it occurs.”   Katrina Methot-Swanson continues to concentrate on urban scenes in the Old Market and Midtown. “In my recent work I’ve been including more figures to add more storytelling to the painting,” she says. “Of course, it’s still up to the viewer to decide what’s going on. I’ve recently finished a painting of M’s Pub on a summer afternoon, which brings back memories of better times for the Old Market.”   Starting 40 years ago in space above M’s Pub, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery has always had at its core strong professional artists from the region. Members of the Artists’ Co-op conduct educational and cultural outreach activities, and  maintain and staff a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SOUND, BHAJANS, VIBRATIONS 
with Shantamrita Chaitanya Swamiji

With As modern science has finally realized, this whole universe is nothing but energy, vibration. Yet, this is no new finding.  The ancient Indian sages and most ancient cultures around the world have understood this fact since time immemorial. 

In today's world, more often than not we unconsciously expose ourselves to energy and vibrations that are not conducive to our spiritual growth. However, with conscious effort, we can utilize the tremendous power of vibration and sound to our spiritual advantage, through chanting and devotional singing. 

The talk will serve as an int roduction to this spiritual science, and to a great spiritual leader who practices it -- Mata Amritanandamayi.

ABOUT Swami Shantamrita Chaitanya
Swami Shantamrita Chaitanya grew up in the USA, where he studied Japanese and Asian Civilizations in college. He began living at Amritapuri (Amma's Ashram), India in 1993. In 1997, he was initiated by Amma as a Brahmachari (formally becoming a monk and priest) and has been engaged in social, educational and spiritual activities around the world ever since. He was based in Tokyo for ten years as Director of M.A. Center Japan, active in East Asia, the Pacific Rim and Africa. Three years ago, Amma sent him to Chicago, and he is currently the Director of the recently founded M.A. Center Chicago, conducting regular spiritual and social service programs there, and traveling around the Midwest to inspire seekers with his heartfelt talks. Passionate about the environment, he strives to make MA Center Chicago a model project of sustainability.

In recent years, he has been conducting more personal development workshops and seminars, delivering motivational speeches and promoting a type of “occupational therapy” via self-understanding.

“Through the Eye of the Beholder” features four artists
11/3/2015 5:00:00 PM UTC - 11/22/2015 11:00:00 PM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Four artists share recent work in “Through the Eye of the Beholder”Nov. 3-22, 2015. The artists will host a First Friday opening reception celebrating the show 6 p.m.to 9 p.m. Nov. 6, 2015, with music by pianist Allan Bailey.   N. Byram has created a series of paintings and collages dealing with impediments and change covering a wide range of subject matter. From the depiction of the rare water poltergeist to a unique idea for providing water to the desert Southwest to a diptych on transformation, she says her pieces are “just for fun!”   Painter Joan Fetter describes her art philosophy as “color/line/shape not necessary in that order.”    Weaver Agneta Gaines says, “I love all kinds of fiber and fiber manipulation, be it in woven pieces, knitted items or needle-felted works. I’m using more color, especially red, either as background or in surface detail. I’m always looking for ways to manipulate the surface of woven structures. In my wall hangings, I use linen, which gives the pieces crispness and structure and provides a perfect companion to the added plant materials.     Cheri Ginsburg thinks of her pastel paintings and pen & ink renderings as visual postcards. During her travels she finds subject matter through her camera lens and then reinterprets captured memories. “When I am painting from my photographic references, it is like I am still experiencing the sights, sounds and emotions of that particular moment. In this age of instant everything, my artwork invites the viewer to stop and linger, savor and celebrate some of the finer details, quieter moments, beauty, vitality and grandeur this big, beautiful world has to offer.”   The Artists’ Co-op has been showing the work of respected regional artists for 40 years. This cooperative group of artists conducts educational and cultural outreach activities, and it maintains and staffs a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing. Monthly opening receptions provide opportunities to meet member artists and learn more about their work.
'Fall into ART' features painters, sculptor and woodturner
10/2/2015 11:00:00 PM UTC - 11/1/2015 11:00:00 PM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Four artists share recent work in “Fall into ART” Sept. 29 through Nov. 1, 2015. The artists will host a First Friday opening reception celebrating the show 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 2, 2015.    Woodturner Doyle Howitt creates small sensuous pieces that emphasize the natural grain, texture and colors in exotic and domestic woods. He often incorporates the aberrations that occur in burls, rounded knotty growths; or spalting, black irregular lines created by fungus growth. Howitt's pieces range from classic to whimsical shapes.    Never content to create flat images, James Lepert started working on sculptures in 1982 with wood, stone and bronze. He creates figurative pieces capture the energy and feeling of a particular moment. He finds inspiration in daily events and his own emotions and contemplations.     Katrina Methot-Swanson exhibits a series of night-time street scenes painted with oils for this show. “As the day’s light slowly fades, the city gets quieter and becomes so mysterious and peaceful,” she says. “In these paintings, I want to portray the quiet conversations and  the solitary activities that you see at night. I like to tell stories that leave interpretation to the viewer.” Painter Dar Vande Voort  explores a few new techniques and materials in pieces shown this month. “I am painting what's on my mind, in my heart and in my life,” she says. “And that covers everything from a donkey to an ocean to a fallen leaf. My common thread is the application of juicy colors. Even the wind should have color,”  and it seemingly does in a particular piece involving an open window.

'Pieces of Minds' features Adams, Schimenti and Wroblewski
7/28/2015 5:00:00 AM UTC - 8/30/2015 5:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Artists' Cooperative Fine ArtsGallery
Three artists show results of their latest artistic explorations in “Pieces of Minds” July 28 to Aug. 30, 2015. The artists will host a First Friday opening reception celebrating the show 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Aug. 7, 2015.    Duane Adams of Griswold, Iowa, will show a series of paintings based on recent travels to the Mediterranean. “The architecture fascinated me,” he says, “from the relatively recent construction in Istanbul to the ancient city of Ephesus. My work is concerned with the play of light and shadows on the subject matter. The range of textural qualities of the various surfaces presented a painting challenge that interested me.”   Margie Schimenti of Omaha often works with found objects and construction materials. Her favorite themes are cityscapes, self portraits and nature. She will exhibit mixed-media pieces about New York City buildings in this show.   Pete Wroblewski of Arlington, Neb., has been sculpting for more than 25 years, working primarily in bronze using the lost-wax process. “My work is usually based on the human figure and explores various subjects that interest me from mythology, nature and emotion. My sculptures show both subtle and obvious motion. Because I do extensive revision of the wax positive I make from a clay beginning, each piece is unique and no copies are made.” The Artists’ Co-op has been showing the work of respected regional artists for 40 years. This cooperative group of artists conducts educational and cultural outreach activities, and it maintains and staffs a gallery that features works in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, weaving, painting, pottery, photography, printmaking, glass, jewelry and drawing.
