<p>Artists Josh Powell and Kim Reid Kuhn collaborate on one of Bemis Underground's last shows, Underground, History

Well, it’s official. In case you missed it, last month, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts unceremoniously removed the signage from its former Underground entrance, after the former venue lay dormant for more than a year.

A mainstay of alternative artistic curiosity and invention since its inception in 2006, the Underground’s mission was “to support exceptional talent through exhibitions and programming which...

<p> Street Gambler

Street-influenced artist Fredy Rincon returns to the RNG Gallery with his second show, The Cards You Are Dealt, which continues until November 2. The focus here is on telling personal stories in a narrative, expressionistic style, frequently with the use of layered and translucent shapes and anchored with ink line.

Media choices range from acrylics to water color to oil, on both canvas and paper, framed under...

LIGHT GLOWS AMID DARK DESPAIR

Most certainly Matthew Lopez has written a very imaginative and original play,The Whipping Man. And a fine cast at Omaha Community Playhouse does it justice on every level. Stephen Nachamie’s direction keeps everything vital and meaningful. The script, however, could stand some revisions, which it probably won’t get. Since the debut in 2006, there have been a number of productions; the present version is likely to...

<p>Roving photograher Rob Walters documents unkown Metro in Driving Omaha at Sweatshop Gallery</p> Drive by Shooting

I spent my first three years here waking to school and work and to parties. I made the decision to get a bike and quickly switched back to the ped lifestyle because Omaha is, as we all know, hillier than The Sound of Music and hard to pedal. Sadly, this truth leaves one reasonable choice to get around our beloved metro, which is over 30 miles across: drive the hell out of it.

Without a bus, overpriced cab or your...

EPITHETICALLY VOLATILE

It’s been nearly 40 years since David Mamet pounced onto the stage with his salty verbosity in American Buffalo. Since then he’s acquired a major rep for showing tough guys in screwy schemes, wheeling and dealing like all get out. 

The production at Blue Barn, superbly directed by Susan Clement-Toberer encapsulates that essence, with a rock solid cast socking it to us definitively, simmering with personality and...

A CHILD’S GARDEN OF INNOCENCE

The playing space is dominated by a massive fence. It surrounds the only territory for Mickey and Sage, currently revealed at Shelterbelt Theatre. There is another interior territory, however, covering more than what is immediately visible and audible. Two children, contained and restricted within that wall, remain sweet, charming and amusing while other parts of their lives beyond their physical boundaries harbor...
