This exhibition includes 63 images printed by Michael Phillips of Wm Blake’s illuminated books to coincide with Opera Omaha’s production of Stranger from Paradise, by Nebraska author/director Kevin Lawler. World Premier Opera performances are May 26th and 27th at the Orpheum Theatre.
The Wm Blake impressions are printed from plates on old papers using historic pigments mixed to match the same coloured inks that Blake used. Printed entirely by hand, by Michael Phillips of the UK.
Mr. Phillips will be on hand for the opening of the exhibition and providing workshops at both UNO and the Union in conjunction with this exhibition…a true collaboration between several arts organizations here in Omaha.
