The Union for Contemporary Art presents Mob Scenes, paintings from Lincoln-based artist Byron Anway. Drawn to the excitement and inherent danger of large groups. Anway uses images of crowds outside morning show studios, people attending sporting events, and protesters marching for change from the 24-hour news cycle to create works that are psychologically resonant and emotionally complex.
Show runs through September 3rd. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Wednesdays 4 - 7PM, Saturdays 11AM - 2PM or by appointment by reaching out to our Director of Programs + Projects, Paige Reitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note that our gallery has moved to 2520 N. 24th Street. Parking is available in the Omaha Small Business Network parking lot just east of the gallery.
