UNO-St. Claude Gallery April Exhibitions – Master of Fine Arts Thesis Shows

We are extremely pleased to announce that the UNO-St. Claude Gallery will host two concurrent Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibitions during the month of April. Brad Stire will exhibit video and photography in “Armchair Tourist,” and Craig Branum will show video, sculpture, and prints in his exhibition, titled “esc.” Stire employs image and installation to “speak of memory, nostalgia, and the integration of media and representation into experience.” Branum states, “My artwork is about the impact of the digital revolution on every aspect of life, such as relationships, war, and self image. I explore this in the creation of sculptures that represent abstracted globes or virtual worlds, digital animations concerning the virtual and simulated, and prints as allegories for embodied post-human experience. The visual themes of my work are bitmapped patterns, early computer graphics, and twenty sided dice.”

The gallery, located at 2429 St. Claude Ave., will hold an opening reception on Saturday, April 11, from 6-9 p.m. Exhibit dates are April 11 – May 3, 2015. Regular gallery hours are Sat-Sun, from 12-5 p.m. Please direct any inquiries to Kathy Rodriguez at, or call the gallery during open hours at 504.948.6939.
