KHN Exhibition: New Work by Shawnequa Linder

Omaha-based artist Shawnequa Linder’s work explores the varying relationships between chaos and disorder, whether applied in a nontraditional landscape or portrait using a combination of texture and colors. Linder uses a variety of materials and techniques in each painting to create a psychologically dense portrait that is unique, narrative, and also playful.

The KHN gallery is open to the public Monday – Friday, 10 am – 5 pm, and by appointment. To schedule an appointment, call 402-874-9600.

KHN Third Thursday Artist Talks

Third Thursday is our favorite night of the month! It is an outstanding opportunity to meet KHN’s resident visual artists, writers, and composers and learn first-hand about their work and creative practices.

The evening begins with snacks and wine, graciously donated by the Kimmel Foundation, and a chance to meet the artists and socialize with friends. Our resident writer and composer will start the night off at about 5:15 pm, presenting in the KHN Gallery, followed by a group visit to each visual arts studio.

This month, we will hear presentations from:

Composer, Masayoshi Ishikawa

Writer, Erica Berry

Visual Artist, Clara Harlow

Visual Artist, Fay Sanders

This is also an excellent opportunity to visit our current exhibit, Neurofibromatosis: A Portrait of Nebraska – works by Rachel Mindrup, on display through August 6, 2021.

 

“Caput Mortuum” : Photography by Jennifer Bockelman

Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts

Presents

“Caput Mortuum: Photography by Jennifer Bockelman”
On view July 31 through September 1, 2017

 Public Reception: August 17, 5 to 7 p.m.

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts presents, Caput Mortuum: Photography by Jennifer Bockelman, on display Monday, July 31 through September 1, 2017.  A gallery reception will be held on August 17 from 5-7 p.m. in conjunction with KHN’s monthly Third Thursday Open Studio event.

Jennifer Bockelman’s recent series of photographs come from an interest in themes of power as filtered through language, in particular, official governmental output such as tweets. Caput Mortuum, or literally “dead head,” refers to the worthless residue left after an alchemical transformation or to a worthless element.  This exhibition reflects an attempt to pit magical thinking against its own logic, to transform lead into gold.

Bockelman holds Bachelors of Science in K-12 Art and Secondary English from Concordia University and a MFA in Sculpture from the University of Colorado. An artist in many different mediums, her past work includes stitched pieces, drawings, impotent political gestures, and performances, often full of wry questions and forced examinations. Bockelman has always enjoyed art’s capacity for stealth, how it can fly under the radar as a holder of many truths. A contradiction, she claims, “I am simultaneously sincere and snarky, helpful and unconstructive.” Bockelman was a KHN resident in 2014.

Since 2001, KHN’s residency program has hosted more than 50 working artists each year­–a combination of visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from across the country and around the world. KHN’s gallery program hosts approximately six exhibitions, annually, focusing on regional artists and alumni residents. KHN is a program of the Richard P. Kimmel and Laurine Kimmel Charitable Foundation, Inc.

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is located at 801 Third Corso in Nebraska City and is regularly open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m and for special events.  Both the exhibit and the reception are free, handicapped accessible, and open to the public.
