About this event
LINCOLN, Neb., (June 1st, 2018) LUX Center for the Arts presents “Silk Canvas: Digital Effects, Craft Techniques” by Chie Hitchner and “Wild Things: Nature and the Social Imagination” by Sandra Williams. These exhibitions will have an opening reception June, 1, 2018. Both Ms. Hitchner’s displayed work as well as demonstrations will give Nebraskans a first hand look at Japanese dyeing and weaving and will illuminate the rich tradition of fine art and craft from Japan. Chie Hitchner’s solo exhibition, Silk Canvas: Digital Effects, Craft Techniques, opens First Friday, June 1st and runs in our West Gallery through June 30th. Sandra Williams displays new works from cut paper in her solo exhibition Wild Things: Nature and the Social Imagination. These works contain variations on the the theme of ecotone, the area where two communities meet and integrate and the tension resulting from these intersections. The stark contrast of cut paper is reflective of the investigation of physical, ecological and cultural boundaries. The stories and fables illustrated attempt to destabilize the modern notion of an unbridgeable boundary between ‘human’ and ‘animal’. Wild Things: Nature and the Social Imagination opens on First Friday, June 1st and runs in our East Gallery through June 30th. The LUX participates in the city-wide art walk in Lincoln, NE every first Friday of the month. Our opening reception is from 5-8 p.m. with scheduled artist talks at 6 p.m. LUX Center for the Arts is free and open to the public. Free parking is available on the west side of the building just off of 48th and Baldwin. LUX Center for the Arts is located in historic University Place at 2601 N. 48th Street.
