Puelz show open through July 30

Lincoln artist Susan Puelz is featured in a solo exhibition of her watercolors at UNL's Great Plains Art Museum, through July 30.

Known for her rich glowing colors, simplified shapes with strong contrasts between light and dark, Puelz is in her 26th year of professional painting. Mentored by Gail Butt, Puelz's 2006 exhibition draws from Butt's notations on her sketch book pages, and going as far back as the 1980s, she uses Butt's suggestions to experiment with layers and textures.

Puelz earned her bachelor's and master's of fine arts degrees at UNL.

The exhibition is drawn from a portfolio of more than 100 prints of old barns and farmhouses made by Farrell in a project spanning from 1998 to the present. The pictures were made in Jefferson, Gage, Johnson, Nemaha, Richardson, Pawnee, Lancaster, Seward, Butler, Saunders, Otoe, Fillmore, and Saline counties. These are photographs recording loss, chronicling the most visible remnants of the vanishing family farm.

Farrell practices the traditional craft of photography using large format cameras and lenses, developing his own negatives and making enlargements in his darkroom. The prints are archivally processed double weight gelatine silver paper lightly toned in selenium for added permanence, matted and framed using archival materials.

An opening reception is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 4 at the gallery.
