Connect Gallery’s October exhibit will feature a retrospective exhibit of artist Stuart Bay’s work from the 1960’s until his death in June, 2015. The exhibition will open October 6th with a reception October 16, 5:30 to 9:00 pm.
Bay was an accomplished artist that worked in multiple media such as 16mm and 35mm film, video, photography, collage, layered collage and sculptural assemblage.
After teaching at the University of Minnesota, he came to Omaha in 1991 to fill in for Fr. Don Doll, S.J. at Creighton University. He moved to Omaha in 1993 and taught at Creighton University, Metro Community College and Iowa Western Community College, as well as being a producing artist well into 2015.
This retrospective will show the gamut of Bay’s creative work over the years, with videos, sculptural work and photo-collages—“Reaching for Nature’s Essence”—shown, all of which are for sale. Bay was both a beloved teacher and a warmly regarded friend of local artists in the Metro Omaha Community.
Connect Gallery is at 3901 Leavenworth; hours are Wed-Sat, 1-5pm.
