Something Bold, Something New

Connect Gallery combines emerging and established work in July exhibition

Connect Gallery’s July exhibit will feature two very different visions from emerging artist Julie Verebely and the more established artist Barbara Howery. The exhibit runs July 6-16 with an opening reception on the 8th from 5-9pm.

Photographer Verebely is showing her 2016 Masters’ degree work from Bellevue University, along with oil painter Barbara Howery, who will display new contemporary abstract works. 

Verebely’s photos were taken in China’s Sichuan Province, and show the village life, as well as the old teahouses still used by the citizens.  On this trip back to China, Verebely focused on scenes and people she had not seen for many years, away from the quick pace of China’s cities.

As International Student Experience Specialist at Bellevue, she is helping 81 Chinese students studying here in Nebraska.  Her display of elegant, almost impressionistic photographs promises a tour of another world.  


Howery hails from Germany and has settled in Omaha. For this exhibit she has departed from landscapes to try her hand with contemporary abstraction in oils.  With a theme of “Love, Faith and Nature,” Howery is exploring this motif to stretch out into more of a designerly approach.

This two-week exhibit runs from July 6-16 only as Connect Gallery will close July 17th through August 16th for a summer break. For more details go to
