Literally & Figuratively is a solo exhibit featuring paintings, drawings and mixed-media works by Courtney Kenny Porto of Omaha, NE. Porto earned her bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS. Porto states, “My inspiration comes in many forms and is most often stored in my subconscious. I live life; I notice. I am angered, excited, intrigued, awed - and then late at night I lie awake and ideas flood my mind. Because of this, my work ranges from comical surrealist animals to more serious issues such as inequalities, social pressures, sexuality, and hardships.” An opening reception will be held Friday, March 15 from 6-8pm. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
