Opening Reception for Sheldon Connections 2
Date(s): August 10, 2007
Time(s): 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Sheldon Connections 2 opens Friday August 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. with a special opening reception.
Works from 27 artists will be on view in the second of three sessions of Sheldon Connections – the initiative by the Nebraska Art Association to transform empty galleries into vibrant spaces this summer.

The opening reception will feature appetizers, coffee and cash bars and a public welcome for the artists. In addition to the artwork exhibitions, four animated films by Tim Guthrie will be shown. They are: "Last Call," "Recalling Trinity," "A War Dream," and "The Nature of the Creative Process."
