September’s First Friday this week boasts a great offering of galleries, live music and more to do. Here’s a schedule of some of the happenings.

6:00 p.m.:: The Mez – Swatches: Works by Katharen Hedges

Katharen Hedges is a Lincoln native and an art student at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, emphasizing in multimedia printmaking and lithography. As a multiracial black woman, Hedge’s racial and cultural identities were complicated to navigate. This body of work was a way of navigating who she was. ‘Swatches’ is an exploration into the words we use to define colors, race, and ourselves. Through a series of prints and installations Hedges hopes to engage the viewer in a dialogue about how they understand and categorize themselves and other people in the world of color.
