March 4, 6 – 8pm, with artist presentations.


Little Monsters by Marvel Maring, includes mixed media collages and artist books, with colorful, obsessively filled, and inventive compositions.   Maring’s love-of-books as a maker extends interestingly to her career as a librarian for the Omaha Public Library.   She has her MFA in Book Arts, from the University of Alabama, an MFA in painting & drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and BFA from University of Kansas.  https://www.instagram.com/marvelmaring/

So That I Am Not Exactly Alone by Matthew Sontheimer, is an installation of a series of mixed media drawings that are paired with process studies contained in a sealed translucent envelope.  He plays with the absurdities of language and images through his own invented rules and alphanumerical translations.  A postcard collection provides a curated view into inspirations and the past.  Sontheimer is an associate professor of painting and drawing at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  He received a B.F.A. from Stephen F. Austin State University and an M.F.A. from Montana State University, Bozeman. He has exhibited in New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, Omaha.  https://talleydunn.com/project/matthew-sontheimer/

Modular Landscapes: Printing Pivots,  by Ian Huebert creates a vast panorama of the ubiquitous irrigation patterns, which gives us the bird‘s-eye-view for spatial vertigo.  This woodblock installation is printed by Ian onsite at Constellation Studios, especially for this exhibition.  Huebert is an artist and designer living in Iowa City, Iowa. His studio, The Picture Press, publishes printed editions and artworks, with an emphasis on woodcuts and letterpress printing. Ian has a background in commercial illustration and an MFA from the University of Iowa Center for the Book. www.thepicturepress.com
