Time Event Title
5:00 pm Apr 18thMFA Thesis Exhibition Reception Eisentrager-Howard Gallery
The second of three MFA Thesis Exhibition runs April 14-18 and features the work of T.J. Edwards, Normandy Alden and Dustin Young. A reception will be held April 18 from 5-7 p.m. in the Eisentrager•Howard Gallery.

Alden’s untitled exhibition is inspired by the rural landscape where she lives in upstate New York. In her artist statement, she writes, “There is a 200 acre farm on the far side of Otsego County where I am building a house, a business, a family, a life. My vision for all of these extends beyond my own capabilities and lifespan. It is a vision of elegance, simplicity and utility. The pots that I make are reflections of this vision, and embody the qualities of the life I seek. They are both exuberant and quiet, expansive and constrained.” After graduation, she plans on returning to her farm and setting up a working studio, growing a garden and completing the house which she and her husband are building themselves.

Edwards has titled his thesis exhibition “Iterations.” Born in Brigham City, Utah, Edwards served as an apprentice to professor emeritus Thanos A. Johnson in Marble, Colo., following his senior year of high school. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics from Appalachian Center for Craft at Tennessee Tech University. He received a Windgate Fellowship and used the award to travel to Jingdezhen, China, as an artist-in-residence in 2009. The following year he was awarded a Baden-Württemberg Stipend for Vocationally Qualified People to participate in an internship program in Germany. His work has been exhibited at 15 exhibitions during his time at UNL, including 10 that were international in scale. He was recently selected as an Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly and will be featured in their international publication this May.

Young’s exhibition is titled “Square with the World.” His current body of work explores the American experience through drawings inspired by memory and mnemonic devices. In his artist statement, he writes, “We store massive amounts of information from each experience and that data influences future thoughts and decisions. Included are the collective memories of daily headlines, articles, and images from media sources and pop-culture.” Raised in the rural town of Dumont, Minn., Young earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Minnesota State University. He received his post-baccalaureate certificate from Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts.

The Eisentrager-Howard Gallery is located on the first floor of Richards Hall at Stadium Drive and T sts on the UNL city campus. For more information, contact the Department of Art and Art History at (402) 472-5522.
6:00 pm Apr 18thFrancisco Souto Opening Reception Kiechel Fine Art
An exhibition of new work by Associate Professor Francisco Souto is at Kiechel Fine Art from April 18-May 31, 2014. There will be an opening reception Friday April 18 from 6-9 p.m.

Francisco Souto: "Poetics of recognition is an exhibition structured around a sensorial awareness. My central preoccupation in this new body of work is the visual reconciliation of the influence that the Great Plains has had in my recent work. These works are evidence of my personal experiences suggesting clarifications through visual mesmerization in the search of the quotidian sublime. As these sensorial reverberations transformed themselves into this new body of work, I became aware that whatever happens to oneself should be considered resource material. All things have been presented to us for a purpose, and art should be considered a way of thinking through an image, as a testimony of a life lived."

Francisco Souto was born in Venezuela and received his BFA from the Herron School of Art and his MFA from The Ohio State University. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Souto has participated in a wide range of national and international exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe, Venezuela, Russia, Egypt, China and Japan. The master printmaker has shared his expertise through workshops and as a visiting artist in the US and abroad, garnering several awards and grants. His work is in several public and private collections around the world.

The show is free and open to the public. Kiechel Fine Art is located at 1208 ‘O’ Street, Lincoln, Nebraska. Works from the exhibition can be found on our website, www.kiechelart.com.
