played until Dec. 9.
The gallery is also available for
special shows featuring two or
more artist, or one artist in special
cases, Rouintree said. The special
shows last from one to two weeks,
while the open shows are usually
on display for two to three weeks,
she said.
The Art League collectively sets a
calendar at the beginning of each
semester, mapping out the times for
the open and special shows for the
entire semester, Rouintree said.
Fliers are posted in Woods and
Richards Halls announcing the
times to attract works for open
shows, she said.
The Department of Art Gallery
also has a pre-determined schedule
for its shows, and directors are
chosen for each show, said Lisa M.
Davis, an intern for the art gallery.
The directors then choose what
artist’s work they will pul in their
shows. In addition to the under
graduate show, each semester fea
tures a Master of Fine Arts show, a
graduate show and a masterpieces
show, she said. Other shows are
thematic shows by contemporary
artists from around the country,
according to the gallery flier. Each
show at the Department of Art Gal

Davis said.
Their current show, which ends
Friday, is called "Uncoln/Lincoln
Exchange,” and features art from
the faculty at the Lincolnshire Col

display of UNL faculty art was sent

The MFA show will be set up
Monday and will run from 5 pm. to
7 p.m. that night, Davis said.
The current Art League Gallery

of the special shows, and it features

through Dec. 16 will be another
special show featuring Michelle
