Impact is a juried group of nationally recognized artists living in Nebraska. Artists showcase their work through educational theme exhibits in museums and galleries. The “All Things Botanical” exhibit focuses our appreciation of the plant world. Color delights as we take an in-depth look at flowers, fields, ponds, and gardens. The exhibit includes a wide variety of artistic styles and media. This exhibit was designed as a special presentation for Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska and is now available for your viewing pleasure at the Norfolk Arts Center!
“For me, creativity is another sense, one that encompasses all others. To create is to smell, touch, see, hear, even taste something and be moved to the point of ‘sparking’ that experience into existence. I create to touch the human spirit. It is a spiritual experience. After spending many childhood hours watching my father work with metals in his workshop, an appreciation was planted for the beauty and reflective quality of light on those surfaces. I use natural images such as trees and flowers, as symbols to touch upon a larger meaning. I enjoy working in a combination of media, employing various metals and paint to create unique pieces that dance with light. Trees have a significant meaning to me. A tree reaches and touches the inner Earth and stretches to touch the sun and stars. A tree connects. It is an image that fits my sense of self and my creations.”
