The UNO-St. Claude Gallery will begin its spring exhibition programming with two concurrent Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibitions. “isthmus=anchovy” will feature installation by Bradford Willingham, and “Framed” will include paintings by Nora See. Willingham “employs commonplace language, objects and means of communication, to create situations and sculptures that are at play with the familiar.” See “appropriates & dislocates paintings as miniature trinkets to reference the consumption and altered continuum of art. Her alterations to original pieces further personalize their context to address specific autobiographical ideas.”
The exhibitions open Saturday, February 14, with a reception from 6-9 p.m. The gallery will additionally host a closing reception on Saturday, March 7, from 6-9 p.m. Exhibit dates are February 14 – March 8, 2015. Regular gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. The gallery is located at 2429 St. Claude Ave. Inquiries may be directed to Kathy Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
