Watercolor artist John Lokke and poet Jan Chism Wright have created a collection of artworks displaying a unique region of rolling hills in Southeastern Nebraska. The Barada Hills extend along the Missouri River from Winnebago Creek just north of Rulo, Nebraska and north to Little Nemaha River just south of Nemaha, Nebraska.
Presented in Bone Creek’s North 40 Gallery, 27 paintings each with an accompanying poem will share the specific details of this place and resonate with many others’ small town and rural experiences elsewhere in the Great Plains.
