A graduate of Omaha’s College of Saint Mary and a retired children’s librarian, Rivera García is a multifaceted artist who works in painting, sculpture, printmaking, and with traditional Mexican art forms such as papel picado (cut paper) and repujado (metal embossing), among many others. This exhibition will feature work that represents the artist’s career to date.
