Bellevue University Fills Gallery with Omaha Native’s Artwork
From Vision to Liquid Gold
Bellevue University will feature local artist Jacqueline Washington’s exhibit Liquid Gold in the Dr. Joyce Norene Wilson Gallery for the month of February in celebration of Black History Month. The gallery is located inside the Hitchcock Humanities Center, located on the University's main campus at 1040 Bruin Blvd., Bellevue, Nebraska.
Many of Washington's works were inspired by her family, Black art and culture, religion, social justice and nature.
Washington was featured in a collaboration exhibition in 2019, a solo exhibit in 2020 and was a part of a group exhibition, Bear Witness, in 2022. She also owns an illustration company known as Camillustrations and has produced artwork for two books, Cry’n Lion and I’m Autistic, Adventurous, and Ever So Bold.
“I am a work in progress, continuously searching for more knowledge of both skill and techniques to better enhance my art,” said Washington. “I like to think of my style as unique.”
Her art work can be viewed until the end of the month and the public can attend a reception held Saturday, Feb. 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. to meet the artist.
