Introductions: Mantis Portraits at Lauritzen Gardens


Sunday June 23rd 2-4 is the opening for a show featuring 20 mantis portraits. The show is hosted by Lauritzen Gardens. If you attend the opening mention you are there for the show for free admission to the gardens. The portraits are of mantises I’ve raised over the past 7 years. They serve an introduction of the species, characters, and their anthropomorphization for the rest of the work I make on mantises. The show runs June 20th-July29th.

Nebraska Biennial and upcoming shows.

I had a piece accepted into the Nebraska Biennial. The show opens Friday at Gallery 1516 from 630-900. The show will run until till August 4th. For more information visit Gallery 1516’s webpage about the show. I will also have a solo show of Mantis Portraits running at Lauritzen Gardens running from June 20th till July 29th. Opening time and information coming soon in a later post. After that I have a solo show of Etymology work at the Fred Simon Gallery in the fall and then a solo landscape show at CHI in Kearny in 2021.

Good Times.

It’s that time of year again. Omaha’s version of the Maker Fair is happening again over at DOspace on 72nd and dodge. This time around it will be this Saturday April 14 10-4p. The event is a kind of show and tell for people working in emerging technologies. A lot of displays will have hands on stuff for kids.

I’ll be showing my full collection of 3D mantis prints, the newly completed mantis tomb and other laser etch mantis stuff, some of the stuff related to how I make the models, and I’ll have some live specimens along for the kids.
