Between the Lines, the May exhibit at Modern Arts Midtown, highlights Lincoln artist Judith Burton and includes current works by artists John Andrews, Gary Day, Michael Tegland and Colin Smith. Opening May 1, 6-8 p.m., this show offers a continuing opportunity for viewing outstanding contemporary regional work.

Burton’s aesthetic focuses on the formal issues of painting:: namely exploration and reinvention of form, surface texture, muted color and close value changes. Her images while often representational usually lie somewhere between the tangible and the abstract. Within those boundaries, she says she is “concerned with the subtle discoveries about the natural world.”

She is well known and honored regionally and nationally for her prolific career in modernist painting. Her work is in both public and private collections including the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney and Sheldon Museum of Art in Lincoln.  For further information contact Modern Arts Midtown at 3615 Dodge St. Omaha: 402-502-8737, Tues-Sat 11-6.
