April 25 Joslyn Welcomes Fred Tomaselli
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The public is invited to a special program featuring Riley CAP Gallery artist Fred Tomaselli. 

Drawing upon art history, as well as Eastern and Western decorative traditions, Tomaselli is known for his lively, kaleidoscopic abstractions. Using found and discarded materials, including leaves and pills, has been integral to his practice since the 1980s.

Tomaselli's presentation is free and open to the public. Exhibition viewing and cash bar begin at 5 pm; program begins at 6:30 pm. (Please note these times are subject to change.)

The Riley Contemporary Artists Project (CAP) Gallery exhibitions are supported by Douglas County, Catherine & Terry Ferguson, Sara Foxley, and Polina and Bob Schlott.

A 500-square-foot space in the Scott Pavilion suite of galleries, the Riley CAP Gallery showcases nationally- and internationally-recognized artists, as well as emerging talent, selected by Joslyn curators. A rotating schedule of intimate, carefully focused exhibitions will examine how artists engage with the world and respond to the issues that challenge them creatively, bringing new perspectives on contemporary art to Nebraska.

Riley CAP Gallery artists are invited to Joslyn for lectures and other public programs, giving audiences the opportunity to gain insight into creative processes and contribute to an expanded dialogue about new art. The first Joslyn gallery dedicated exclusively to living artists, the Riley CAP Gallery represents an important step in making contemporary art an even more integral component of the Museum’s exhibition programming.
