Art Show - Kent Bellows

I have been mentoring/teaching at Kent Bellows Visual Art Center this summer and we just finished up the semester. So now it is time to show the amazing work that this group of talented students created. Please come out to see the new exhibition entitled “Collective Unconscious”.

The Exhibition Reception opens this Friday August 1st 6-9pm. This is a two night reception featuring a multidisciplinary exhibition of work from the students and mentors of Joslyn's Kent Bellows Mentoring Program on Friday,  August 1, 6 - 9 pm, and a fashion multimedia art exhibition reception on Saturday, August 2, 6 - 9 pm.

Location: Kent Bellows Studio Gallery, 3303 Leavenworth Street, Omaha

My recent anatomy study painting that I did as a painting demo for my students will be in the show. As I have mentioned on several occasions skill based art is so important for building the foundation of a young artist. I teach naturalistic drawing and painting methods in which the artists paint a portrait or anatomical study by going through a process of establishing first the positions of the skeleton, then the muscle groups on the skeleton, then the skin and flesh tones are placed over the top to create the human form.

Art is a process of imagination, discipline, and understanding. This group of students has a great grasp on these concepts. Don’t miss the opportunity to come to the gallery and see this powerful exhibition.

Come out and meet these incredible young artists and experience their work in this unique show.
