Photographer Teresa Prince will show her series of “bitch” photos this week at the UNO Milo Bail Student Center. The project, called “Bitch: It’s Our Word Now,” features a series of images of women holding signs that claim the word as their own and define it in ways personal to them. Prince began the project because she wanted to take the word – oft used negatively to describe people who don’t stick to traditional gender roles – and celebrate it. The images will be on display in the student center lounge on Thursday, March 10 until 6 p.m. Prince will speak Tuesday at noon on the UNO campus, 6001 Dodge St. * Students in the South High Magnet School Art Department are showing work this week at the Bancroft Street Market. The show features painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, mixed media and design work from students who attend the school. Bancroft Street Market is located at 2701 S. 10th St, and the show continues through the afternoon of March 13. * Mentors who are part of the Kent Bellows Studio will show work at the RNG Gallery beginning Saturday, March 12. Some of the mentors in the show created the work with the help of their students, who provided critique and feedback to the older artists. Christina Narwicz curated the show, which opens with a reception on the 12th, from 7 p.m.-10 p.m., and continues through March 27. The gallery is at 1915 Leavenworth St. * The Dundee Gallery kicks off spring with new work from Lissa Hase and John Stillmunks. Both artists are Omaha natives, though Hase now lives in Boulder, Colo., and Stillmunks lives in Des Moines, Iowa, where he runs the Thought Gallery. This series focuses on Aesop’s Fables. The show opens on Friday, March 11, with a reception from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. and continues through March 27. * The first annual 2011 Bemis Center Regional Exhibition will open March 18 in the Bemis Underground. The first annual event features the work of artists who live within 100 miles of Omaha. Juror Kate Hackman chose 36 artists from the more than 200 submissions; some are exhibiting for the first time. Three of the artists will win $500 and a 2012 solo show in the Underground. The winners will be announced at the opening reception on Friday, March 25 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Hackman is associate director of the Charlotte Street Foundation, a Kansas City-based non-profit that supports artists. She’ll give a gallery talk on Saturday, March 26 at noon.
