frogman's1Multi-modal features the work of printmakers from Frogman’s Print Workshops – Kristen Greteman, Jeremy Plunkett and Melody Vaughan. Plunkett’s work is part of a portfolio exchange, Bike Print MKE. The works celebrate multi-modal transportation. This show, which runs through July 31 at the little gallery, is part of the Frogman’s gallery crawl happening throughout the city during the month of July.

In conjunction with the opening reception, the benson underground film forum will be screening transportation-related films at the Omaha Bicycle Company, 6015 Maple Street.

A portion of proceeds from this show’s print sales will benefit Mode Shift Omaha, a local group that advocates for transportation options that enhance quality of life and opportunities to live, work and play.

Frogman’s Print Workshops, housed at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, is a one-of-a-kind print intensive that offers education, professional development and community enhancement. Frogman’s full range of printmaking courses include intaglio, lithography, relief, water-based screenprinting, engraving, mezzotint, photogravure, collagraph, monotype, moku hanga, digital printmaking, letterpress, artist books and more.

julie jenowe: alchemical remains of love and loss

julie on the installation…

love letter“This piece represents the sacred meaning of my 17-year relationship with my former husband. The anatomical heart with a vase-like open top is combined with the shape of a bleeding heart flower, symbolizing compassion and emotional freedom. Ginkgo leaf also takes on part of the heart structure, symbolizing ancient wisdom. There’s even a hint of linden leaf, symbolizing self love and the balancing of the male/female aspects. The pain and suffering of the disintegration of the relationship is transformed by the expression of love repeatedly found in the love notes written by David. They were photocopied onto parchment paper and formed into doves, symbols of love and peace.”
