November’s Downtown First Friday listings:

The Marz Bar and The Hot Mess are joining the art walk mix….

Where: Marz Bar, 1140 O St.
When: 5 pm - 10 pm
Who: Rachel Hardin. This series of drawings is an exploration of the idea of consumption, through studies of the male face. The works on paper are built up of pencil and/or ink, rendering parts of the mouth through meticulous layers of hatch marks. The figures are all male and all depicted consuming sweets, such as, a sucker, popsicle, a chocolate covered banana. These particular food items suggest sensuality while the zoomed in prospective evokes a sense of investigation. This investigative perspective separates the figure from the sensuous act of consumption and pushes it towards a more unappealing rendering of consumption.

When: 7pm - 10 pm
Who: "12 Photographers" curated by Keith Jacobshagen. Music by DJ Ol’ Moanin’.
“The reason for this exhibition is a simple one. It was a chance to get twelve Nebraska photographers, who’s work I admire, together in a single gallery space and enjoy their images. If by putting these images together one can find some common links, theoretical or visual so much the better. However my intention was purely selfish. I admire their individual visions and believe this group will offer viewers a rich and fulfilling experience.” – Keith Jacobshagen
