The artists explore the state of American aesthetics and the relationship to the current socio-political climate through mixed media, ceramic sculpture, printmaking and assemblage. This exhibition is proudly sponsored by Bold Nebraska and the Lincoln Arts Council. "Dementia Americana" runs in the LUX Main Gallery through March 31st. More information at Louis LaBudda’s ceramic objects in "Life is a Balloon" are visual representations of himself. Each piece is dressed well with a unique pattern, to symbolize the outfits worn on a day-to-day basis. The forms themselves often go deeper. Some represent bottled emotions, others joyous memories. This exploration of self is accompanied by an appreciation for beauty and design apparent in his striking surface decorations, patterns, and material choice. Louis LaBudda received a BA from Doane College and a Post-Baccalaureate in Ceramics from the University of Arkansas. He currently resides in Lincoln, Nebraska and works out of his personal studio. "Life is a Balloon" runs in the LUX East Gallery through February 22nd. More information at The LUX participates in the city-wide art walk in Lincoln, NE every first Friday of the month.
