Gozer needs surgery for Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO), and this sale is an effort to help raise funds for the x-rays, consultations, surgery and other medical expenses. It’s anticipated that the total cost could exceed $4,000.
Tim is clearing out the nooks and crannies and discovering art that he’s collected, received, and acquired over many years. A few artists have even offered work to him to assist in the fundraiser. Everything will be priced to sell, with a lot of pieces under the $50 and $100 price points, with larger and more valuable work also priced with significant discounts. Most prices have been reduced to be 70% or even 90% off.
“There will be art by many Omaha-area artists, but a lot of work from my collection and mostly my own artwork. A few generous artists have donated work for the sale, which I appreciate more than I can say.” said Guthrie about the sale.
Artists include: Tim Guthrie, Richard Briggs, Enid Crawford, Antony Cuellar, Jana Donoho-Strong, Larry Ferguson, Rob Gilmer, Kristine Hansen-Cain, David Helm, Andrea Henkels, David James, Jeff McClennan, Amy Nelson, Gerard Pefung, Robert Peterson, Lynn Piper, Jim Presley, John Thein, Bart Vargas, Pearla Mohler, Watie White, and artifacts from the Museum of Alternative History (T’s & Gnus), along with some free collectable fliers, postcards, and other surprises.

For 20 years, Toph Beck worked as a NASA documentary filmmaker and composer in Los Angeles before moving back to his hometown of Omaha in 2015. Currently living in the Old Market area, Toph now focuses primarily on his art: a combination of painting, drawing, music and film.
Most of his artistic style is influenced by his experiences living in a rough neighborhood in East Hollywood. Every wall in the area was littered with advertising and dozens of repeating movie posters overwritten with layers of colorful graffiti. Every person wanted to be heard, seen, watched and adored. Every step taken felt more and more like a character moving through a video game, having either the objective of advancement – or just plain survival. These experiences are all inspiration for “Pick Best Move.”
Beck’s debut solo show, “Pick Best Move” is designed as an immersive experience. Paintings and drawings will complement the gallery itself as an interactive game board, with a multi-screen projection installation on the lower level and an original soundscape played throughout the gallery.
The exhibit draws connections between consumerism, casinos, and conspiracies. A repetitious mixture of abstract design, nonsensical graffiti, and satirical word play – all revolving around a faceless character – unknowingly being manipulated in both thought and action.
