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.

T. B. Johnson: Impressionist Regionalism
Postponed: TBDJuly 13- September 25, 2016
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.
