“Land/People” is the most recent work by Amanda Breitbach who participated in Bone Creek’s “Ballad” in 2015. Breitbach is part of the newest generation of agrarian artists. She specifically focuses on people’s relation to the land in all of her work. We will see some large photographs of a place she dearly loves.
The Great American Draft Horse

Three gifts of art from artist and collector Gerald Wempner of Georgia in 2016 have inspired a show called “The Great American Draft Horse.” This show will allow us to display these new gifts; a wood carving sculpture of a man driving a hay rake by John Kittleson, a bronze of a draft horse pulling a felled tree by Robert Broshears, as well as other horses in the collection.
150 Artists, 150 Artworks, 150 Years of Nebraska in Miniature
May 3, 2017 – July 30, 2017
For the summer we hope to bring together 150 Nebraska artists. This major exhibition and sale celebrates Nebraska artists, their craft, and this great state. If you are an artist or know some artists, please encourage them to apply.
T.B. Johnson (- 1968) was a Swedish Nebraska native who studied with Birger Sandzen. Johnson painted scenes in and around Lincoln in the bold, heavy impasto, impressionistic style of Sandzen. This show would feature his most agrarian of his pieces from the Nebraska State Historical Society collection. This show demonstrates Bone Creek’s commitment to Regionalism as a major part of the artistic agrarian story.
