With so many artists to choose from, there is no one over-arching theme to discern, and the pleasures of compare and contrast belong solely to the viewer. Enjoy while it’s in season.

Summer Exhibition is open at Modern Arts Midtown, 3615 Dodge Street, and runs through August 28. A mid-show reception will be held on Friday, August 2 from 6-8pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 11am to 6pm. For further information, contact 402/502-8737 or visit
