“There are a lot of college stu

year-old people and young kids
come in for the cards,” he said.
Watt, a player himself, thought
the appeal for buying new cards
stemmed from the gambling as

United States and was exposed to all
of the different religions, she said she
realized people were doing the same
thing when they viewed religion.
“They’re looking at God in one
place, and they’re convinced that’s
what God is,” she said. “They’re not
realizing that is the same God we’re
all talking about.”
Mahapatra also likes to use her
gallery to help budding young artists
who have been given no chance any
where else, she said.
In keeping with this, she is dis
playing works by Aaron Sheppard, a
senior at Norris High School in Firth.
“I think lie’s going to make a very
good artist,” she said. “I like the spon
taneousness of his art.”
Surya also features performing art.
Mahapatra said the gallery had
played host to American Indian flut
ists and drummers, jazz bands and
Indian folk dancers.
Mahapalra has big plans for her
gallery. She said her future plans in
cluded a major show on African
American artists, a show that de
picted the life of immigrants after
they entered the United States, and a
show depicting the common person’s
life in war-tom areas like Bosnia.
Mahapatra, a member of the Lin
coln Artists’ Guild, will continue to
paint for herself — for fun — even
though she has won awards in sev
eral art competitions.
“I still consider painting a hobby,
not a profession,” she said.
Mahapatra said her profession was
“mom,” and it comes even before
maintaining the galleiy.

“Hell Freezes Over”
The first Eagles album of new
recordings since 1980 has been re
leased, and after their 14-year
separation, Don Henley, Glenn
Frey, Joe Walsh, Don Felder and
Timothy B. Schmit sounded as
polished as ever.
In “Hell Freezes Over” the
Eagles deliver 11 live recordings
of favorite hits, balancing out the
oldies with four fresh studio-pro

breakup, “Get Over It” has been
called the band’s theme song, cit

up to Eagle quality when com

Can’t Tell You Why,” also found
on this album.
Incorporating songs recorded
by band members during their
solo years was a nice touch, but it
weakened the album. Henley’s
“New York Minute” sounds stron

than on a commemorative release.

recordings a good excuse to up
date an album collection.
