Monday, November 9, 2015

A new exhibit on display at the Red Cloud Opera House boasts a wide range of specialties and mediums of art by artists from the Hastings area.. Included in the exhibit are works by Cody Carson-Brown, Jeremy Daniels, Tom Kreager, Marcella Maley, Jane Marie, Turner McGehee, and Amy Sandeen. The public is invited to meet the artists and view the exhibit at a reception on Saturday, December 12, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Red Cloud Opera House prior to a performance by The Innocence at 7:30 p.m.

Within the exhibit, Cody Carson-Brown is showcasing a gorgeous ceramic display called “Beyond the Surface” that utilizes earth tones and a mixture of organic features and patterned texture. Jeremy Daniels is displaying beautiful pastel and oil paintings that depict the heart of the Sandhills region. The masterful color selections and style truly capture the feel of the windy prairie. Tom Kreager of Hastings College created four colorful glass works of art that he calls his “Drop Series”. Marcella Maley and Turner McGehee of Hastings College bring some of the most unique pieces to the exhibition. Marcella’s mixed media compositions are intricate and fascinating. Turner’s compositions are also truly unique and eye catching. Artist Jane Marie uses natural elements and vibrant colors to make nature come to life in a new way with her sculptural vessels. And finally, Amy Sandeen’s fine art photography prints demonstrate a different view of the natural world.

This exhibition will be on display from now until January 29, 2015. For more information please call the Red Cloud Opera House at 402-746-2641 or visit www.WillaCather.org.
