Creighton Lied Art Gallery Opens 2006 Exhibit Season

The Creighton Lied Art Gallery, located in the Lied Education Center for the Arts, opens its 2006 season with an exhibit of photographic-based mixed media artwork by Éliska Mörsel Greenspoon.

Titled Light Works, the exhibit begins on Saturday, Aug. 26, with a reception for the artist from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibit continues through Sept. 24. Gallery hours are from 1-4 p.m. daily (including weekends), and there is no admission charge.

Greenspoon was born in Chomutov, Czechoslovakia, and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Clemson University in Clemson, S.C., and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Her works have been shown in museums and galleries all over the country.

“My primary art is photography, but you wouldn’t know it just by looking at it. There are a multitude of images, mostly not recognizable; however, my intent is to exploit a variety of photo sensitive materials. As traditional film-based photography struggles in the market place, Light Works is a celebration of its invention (in 1826), “she added.

This exhibit is funded, in part, by the Richard and Mary McCormick Endowment Fund for the Fine and Performing Arts, the Grace Keenan Fund and another anonymous source. Information for this exhibit and other events can be found at www.finearts.creighton.edu.

The Creighton Lied Art Gallery is located on the main floor of the Lied Education Center for the Arts, 24th and Cass St. Visitor parking is located west of the building and is accessed from Cass St. Additional visitor parking is available, on the weekends and after 5 p.m., on the top level of the 24th Street parking structure.
