Culture Clash

Beauty and love conjure up a variety of emotions and feelings.  They capture passion and mix with both sensuality and power.  However, beauty is constructed and shaped by culture and society.  Within this context lies a conundrum of what power and beauty say about us as a civilization. 

This is the context of iROZEALb, the inaugural show at Joslyn Art Museum ‘s new gallery, the Riley Contemporary Art Project...

Blue Barn Theatre houses a fresh, often hilarious, contemporized, profanity-spiked take on Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt. This version, called Gnit, is written by a guy from Massachusetts, Will Eno.

See Fine Print

Fine art prints can be both complex and mysterious.  The process is difficult and time consuming with much thought given to color and design.  But, the most important part of process is the artist.  It is their touch that turns the print into something sublime as they follow through while maintaining some freshness to the work.
