On this week’s episode of KRCU’s Going Public, we’ll hear from artist Terese Nielsen, who’s widely known for her illustrations in the popular trading card game Magic: The Gathering. KRCU’s Jason Brown spoke with Nielsen about her work, which is currently being showcased in the Heroes, Villains, Monsters exhibition at the Crisp Museum. Later on in the show, we’ll also hear from Southeast President Dr. Vargas discuss the university’s new drone program, further expansion of the campus downtown, and Southeast being named as one of the best colleges for veterans.

10.) Freakwater - Scheherazade

Americana with a punk sensibility is no longer reason enough to pay attention, but Freakwater have been doing it since the late ‘80s, playing open-mic gigs in strip clubs in their hometown of Louisville, KY. The urgent harmonies of Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin coupled with the dark and turbulent psych-country music form into what is truly a rebellious soundtrack for rural America.

Heroes, Villains, Monsters is a showcase of comic book and fantasy art on display at the Crisp Museum at Southeast’s River Campus. Terese Nielsen is among the artists who are featured in this exhibition, and she was present for the launch event in November. Nielsen is perhaps best known for her artwork in the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering. Her figures have a striking beauty to them, and are powerful, by way of their physicality, or perhaps with a cunning look.
