We are extremely pleased to announce two concurrent, solo thesis exhibitions in the month of February at the UNO-St. Claude Gallery.
“H O S T A G E S” by Dane Hansen will feature photographs and installation. Hansen states, “Predatory drives move the gears of culture silently toward violence, isolation, and indifference. They are widespread, but easily hidden and denied. Somewhere between Goya and Muybridge, I discovered I could represent their subliminal environment, where death and circumstance are not absolutes, but pliable means to an end.”
Animations, paintings, drawings, and installation in “Problemagic” by Sam Stolte “are often inspired by narratives recollected from popular sources, such as podcasts and websites,” according to the artist. Stolte’s work “serves as a pictorial manifestation of everything from visualized passages in literature to eavesdropping.”
The gallery, located at 2429 St. Claude Ave., will host an opening reception on Friday, February 10, in conjunction with the St. Claude Art Walk, from 6-9 p.m. The exhibition will run from February 10 – March 5, 2017. Due to Carnival, we will additionally host a closing reception on Saturday, March 4, from 6-9 p.m. Regular gallery hours are Sat-Sun, 12-5 p.m.
