The Fred Simon Gallery presents the artwork of a select number of Nebraska artists each year. Iggy Sumnik and Linda Stephen, both natives of the Great Lakes State of Michigan, present recent works.
Linda Stephen‘s paper and origami landscapes celebrate the festive and quiet moments in our lives. This summer, as an artist in residence with the National Parks Service at the Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice, Linda started a new series that honors the history of homesteading and also celebrates the restored tallgrass prairie at HomesteadNM. The Homestead “House and Home” series will be unveiled at the Fred Simon Gallery.
Iggy Sumnik and his ceramic sculptures embrace and merge cultural trends and the natural world to create bright, interesting and contrasting scenarios.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday October 25, 6 – 8pm
Talks from artists at 6:30 p.m.
At its simplest, paper is an ordinary, everyday item that is a part of most of our lives. Yet when it is found in the hands of an artist and is purposefully manipulated in some fashion, it can become a complex, three-dimensional artwork that speaks of form, function, our culture, our land, and our lives. More than 40 printmakers, book artists, sculptors, paper folders and painters delve into cutting, forming, folding, or pressing paper to create small to monumental works of art.
Look for the panels “Pas de Deux” by Linda Stephen, origami collage from Japanese papers of a pair of Sandhill cranes dancing on a late winter field.
