As you recall, The Cather Foundation in Red Cloud, Nebraska invited me to exhibit my work in their beautiful gallery space from September 1 through October 30, 2015. Last night we enjoyed a really lovely reception, which was a series of unexpected delights.
The foundation building itself is lovely; updated, yet with the flavor of the past and the influences on Cather's life carefully preserved.
Despite the distance between towns in this part of the world there is a sincere appreciation for the fine arts. Take that, Big City.

We left Red Cloud last night with a sense of deep appreciation for so much; for the work of Willa Cather herself; for those who work to preserve her legacy; for those who appreciate the artistic efforts of others; and for a certain 4th grade teacher who planted a small seed so many years ago.
