Gallery Supervisors

KANEKO is home to some amazing young professionals who provide much needed support to office and program staff. Gallery supervisors are the face of KANEKO. They are educators who engage with visitors and promote the KANEKO mission of inclusivity, collaboration, and innovation throughout Omaha. Gallery supervisors lead student tours, assist in exhibition maintenance and oversee community event rentals in our facility.

The next time you visit, be sure to stop and chat with our gallery staff, they are an excellent resource for all things KANEKO.

Monica Cable

Monica graduated from UNL with a bachelors of fine arts in art history and anthropology. She has a very explorative personality; she loves traveling, learning new languages, and experiencing different cultures. That’s why Monica loves her job at KANEKO so much! KANEKO allows her to explore her creativity as well as enhance her knowledge of art history and the current and upcoming art world.

Tia Dawson

Tia loves being a part of KANEKO because it helped her realize that just because you aren’t using art supplies for your piece doesn’t mean you aren’t an artist or creative. She is an artist. Styling is her craft, and clothing is her medium.

Joe O’Connor

Joe is an admirer of all things arts. Whether it is going to art shows or attending concerts at local music venues,  he checks out the local scene. His main passion is film, he studied film and does freelance video shoots. In his free time he watches films from all over the word of all genres and budgets. He has been with KANEKO since Kinetic in 2017. The sculptures of John Buck have been his favorite but he loved the conversation that our virtual reality headsets brought everyday during the Reality season.

Jared has been with KANEKO for almost two years and has become a well-known face at the organization. Whether hosting tbd Dance programs or working the front desk, Jared makes every visitor feel welcome and appreciated. Jared enjoys fashion and writing and is very involved in the local arts community.
