LUX Center for the Arts presents “Photo Ceramica” by Peter Olson As a professional photographer, Peter Olson has traveled the world many times over. From corporate culture to religious iconography, he finds meaning in the repetition of human expression. His recent ceramic sculptures draw upon his deep experience with the camera, to reimagine captured imagery in a cylindrical form. The images encasing each ceramic piece are left by ink from photographic prints that when fired, burn away leaving a permanent and detailed image from the iron oxide in the ink. Color tone is determined by time and temperature. These expertly collaged individual pieces give way to a fixed visual narrative, a kaleidoscope of imagery than spans centuries and continents. When joined this way, each motif contributes to a network of increasing complexity. Photo Ceramic runs in our East Gallery through February 24. More information at The LUX participates in the city-wide art walk in Lincoln, NE every first Friday of the month. Our opening reception is from 5-8 p.m. with scheduled artist talks at 6 p.m. LUX Center for the Arts is free and open to the public. Free parking is available on the west side of the building just off of 48th and Baldwin. LUX Center for the Arts is located in historic University Place at 2601 N. 48th Street.
