Nov. 5-24 On and Off the Wall: Iggy Sumnik Solo The New BLK, 1213 Jones St.  Opening reception Nov. 5, 6-10 p.m.  403.5619, thenewblk.com The New BLK is that new, quirky, part gallery, part design firm that’s making ripples in Omaha’s art community. Having covered visual and performing arts, they move forward with a solo show from Detroit transplant, Iggy Sumnik. After moving here on a three-year commitment as an assistant to Jun Kaneko, Sumnik’s time alongside the art sage has expired and he’s since taken up his studio at Omaha Clay Works. The work he’ll display is a fusion of media, pattern, color and form with an industrial or organic slant. His work will literally be displayed on a wall, and off of it, using electric outlets and pipes to make his point about “the impact of man and culture on the natural elements present in our surrounding.”
