As part of its 5th anniversary celebrations in 2013 Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art is hosting a special reception May 25 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.
A painting entitled “A Team” generously donated by artist Michael Bingham will be awarded during the reception. The 10” x 13” original acrylic painting depicts a team of draft horses in full harness.
Enter-to-win tickets are available beginning May 6. Tickets are $20 and proceeds of the ticket sales will support Bone Creek Museum’s ongoing programs. Information about how to purchase tickets is available at bonecreek.org. Special gifts will be awarded to ticket purchasers who attend the reception.
David City Public School Alumni are special guests at this Alumni weekend reception and the public is invited to attend.
The afternoon will feature a talk by artist Rod Bouc. Rod will discuss his work displayed in a joint exhibition with Charlene Potter entitled “Wild and Tangled: Foliage of the Plains.” The exhibit will run through June 30.
Bouc is a native Nebraskan who has been involved in the arts his entire life. He studied painting and drawing at UN-L and Ohio State. He currently resides in Columbus, Ohio and is the deputy director at the Columbus Museum of Art. Bouc presents a perspective that reminds us to take a moment and appreciate the natural beauty of Nebraska. “In the city nature is an annoyance. In the country it is much more humbling and inspiring,” Bouc said.
Omaha sculpture Charlene Potter considers herself an environmental artist. She is very intentional that her work inspires care for nature and has uplifting messages. Her series of water flowers made from ceramic porcelain is meant to communicate the importance of preserving and restoring clean, fresh water sources in Nebraska.
Artist Michael Wilson will also be in attendance at the reception. His exhibition entitled “The Horreum, ut Sacellum (The Barn, as a Chapel) on display in the Bone Creek Museum Annex ends May 26.
