Well, it’s our last First Friday at Parallax Space. It’s been a fun two years having our space in Lincoln, with memorable shows by Mike Burton, Anne Burton, Jay Kreimer, Kimberly Thomas, Ying Zhu, Byron Anway, Danny Sullivan, Emma Nishimura, Bill Graham, and UNL Womanhouse, among others. Many, many thanks to all our friends and to the community for supporting us and spending many a First Friday conversing and enjoying art.
Please join us one more time tonight from 7 – 10 pm for our show “An Idea of Home.” This is an eclectic exhibition featuring work by artists (and some burgeoning ones!) from our local community in Lincoln and Omaha. “An Idea of Home” represents our shift to embracing Lincoln as our home, and our attempt to recognize some of the people who have made it such an enjoyable place to live.
I was doing some research for a talk I’m giving and found this closing notice about Parallax Space, one of the consistently better galleries in Lincoln. I’m bummed to see them closing, and I wonder what prompted it, or if this was a planned thing all along.
