Two recently retired UNO artists/professors, Gary Day and Larry Bradshaw, are featured in a closing reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m., Nov.12, for their current two-person, retro exhibition in the Art Gallery of the University of Nebraska at Omaha.      

Day will also talk that day at noon in the Gallery as part of the Wilson Lecture Series, sponsored by UNO’s Friends of Art. The talk is free and open to the public.

Both Bradshaw and Day retired last May, Bradshaw after 42 years of teaching and Day with 36 years of teaching in the Department of Art and Art History.

Day’s prints and animations have been exhibited both nationally and internationally and are included in both Joslyn Art Museum and Lincoln’s Sheldon Art Gallery. Day has worked with traditional mediums and was an early developer of digital printmaking technologies.

Bradshaw has shown in more than 350 national and international exhibitions. His mixed –media drawing “Togetherness One” (shown) was digitally included as part of an installation at the Louvre Museum in France. His paintings and drawings reflect his ongoing contemplations of everyday life.

The Art Gallery is open to the public on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For further information, call 402-554-2796 or email
