“Jim Bockelman & Company”, the April show at Modern Arts Midtown, 36th and Dodge, will feature this artist along with Larry Bradshaw, Bryce Speed, Brian Gennard and Rick Johns. Opening April 3rd, 6-8:00 p.m., the show continues until April 25th.
Bockelman’s work in this show is a continuation of works done on paper. Through staining and glazing, the drawn elements are subjected to an additive and subtractive process that further integrates the media into the paper surface. Though the paper may become fragmented, a more tactile and gritty surface results in the rich and integrated finished work.
Bockelman is one of 37 artists who have been selected for the upcoming Joslyn Art Museum exhibition Art Seen: A Juried Exhibition of Artists from Omaha to Lincoln, which opens June 21, 2015.
An Associate Professor of Art at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska, Bockelman has had numerous solo exhibitions in Nebraska as well as Berlin, Germany.
