Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts


“Immutable Time: Paintings by Barbara Simcoe”
On view April 11 through May 6, 2016

 Public Reception Thursday, April 21, 5 to 7 p.m.


The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts presents a new exhibition, Immutable Time: Paintings by Barbara Simcoe, beginning Monday, April 11 and continuing through May 6, 2016.  The gallery reception will be held April 21st, 5-7 p.m., and coincides with our Third Thursday Open Studio event.


Barbara Simcoe’s figurative paintings feature women exclusively, examining a range of feminine archetypes: woman as mother, as earth, as a vessel of creativity, or as complement to masculine divinity.  Simcoe works with these archetypes to create artworks that function as metaphor, giving form to the non-visual and incomprehensible.

Barbara Simcoe earned a BFA at the University of Illinois, and an MFA at the University of North Texas.  She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including shows at ARC Gallery in Chicago, Loyola University, The Foundry Art Center in St. Charles, MO, Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts, and the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, MI.  She was a Fulbright Scholar to Lithuania, and a Visiting Artist in Residence at the American Academy in Rome. Simcoe is currently a Professor of Art at The University of Nebraska-Omaha.


The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is located at 801 Third Corso in Nebraska City and is regularly open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m and for special events.  Both the exhibit and the reception are free, handicapped accessible, and open to the public of all ages.  KHN is a program of the Richard P. Kimmel and Laurine Kimmel Charitable Foundation, Inc.
