BENSON – The little gallery will celebrate its fourth birthday Friday, June 7, with the opening of “America” by Trudy Swanson. The reception runs from 6:00 to 9:00pm in conjunction with BFF. It’s free and open to the public.
Re-purposing items easily recognizable in American culture, Swanson shifts the focus of interpretation to consider them within the context of addressing current conversations. The show will also feature a collaborative installation piece by Swanson and Omaha artist Shaun Ilahi.
In conjunction with “America,” Swanson is encouraging people to participate by posting their responses to the question “What does America mean to you?” on the show’s Facebook event page.
“America” runs through June 29. The little gallery, powered by Polecat Communications, is located in downtown Benson at 5901 Maple Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday from 3 to 6pm, Saturday from 10am to 1pm + by appointment. For more information, call 402.681.1901.
