Twighlight Zone

American artist Keith Jacobshagen has made a significant career out of painting an empyrean Nebraskan landscape. For an encore he has made a visual statement about that experience, and it’s currently on display at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts through July 30. Keith Jacobshagen: A Golden Year is a conceptual installation of 3.5 by 5-inch oil paintings on copper sheets that feature, except for three...

Something Fresh in Dundee

Omaha’s Dundee has always had many charms, whether for its shops, cafes and beautiful homes in this walkable neighborhood, and for its 475 identical flower baskets hung on cast iron streetlights. Add to this list another summertime pleasure: Fresh Paint, a new exhibition by Paula Wallace, now on view at the Dundee Gallery through June 23. The show is dominated by two distinct painting series. Wallace’s 16 large...

<p>The Hot Box girls of Guys and Dolls, led by Miss Adelaide played by Kirstin Kluver (center), performing “Bushel and a Peck.” </p> Thoyd Run

Cold Cream’s Busy Weekend

* The last weekend in the merry month of May more than compensates for the penultimate one that was absent new theater openings. Suddenly we get Wicked, Guys and Dolls, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, Leaving Iowa and Nana's Naughty Knickers plus the Saturday start of eight full days of drama at the Great Plains Theater Conference. You can read more about the GPTC and the Omaha Community Playhouse G&D musical elsewhere...
