April 13 – July 7, 2019
Lincoln artist Anne Burton explores historical modes of coded communication (war-coding; braille; and floriography, the Victorian-era enthusiasm for sending flowers to convey coded messages) through various printmaking processes. The resulting colorful, intricate prints contain imagery of circles, flowers, and clothing that reflect humanity’s search for identity while revealing a universal desire to be heard and understood. Burton is the Art Program Coordinator at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha where she teaches full-time.

Artist Talk and Reception: Saturday, April 13 • 1:30 p.m.
