My show in the Art Gallery is called Multiples. Often one plate can get lost on a wall or look insignificant. In this show, multiple pieces are tied together either with color, shape or subject matter. There are collections of fruit, animals, truc de l’oeil cutting boards, and a cornucopia to test out my idea.
People often ask why I paint on porcelain. It is an old-fashioned, if not archaic medium. Not much in fashion. It is simply because I love porcelain. Clear, hard, shiny and smooth it is a perfect surface. The overglaze paint, I use is clear and clean not muddied by oils and solvents. Overglazes are applied thinly in washes. So I can create fine detail and tonality. I have been painting for thirty-five or more years and I’m still not finished.
So come see my obsession with porcelain on display and join me for an open house reception from 1:00 to 3:00PM on Sunday afternoon, March 6.
There will be some coffee, maybe with a little Irish, and some sweet treats.

The Nebraska Chamber Players held their first concerts of the 2022 season at the Unitarian Church of Lincoln in Feburary with great success! The Chamber Players performed selections from Beethoven, Mozart, and Poulenc while introducing their newest member, oboist Darci Gamerl.
On March 11 (7:30PM) and March 13 (3:00PM) they will present a concert of works by Beethoven and Glinka in the sanctuary. Whether enjoying from the seats at 6300 A Street or on the livestream, the Players appreciate our continued support of them and the arts. A special thanks to Linda Brown, chair of the A/V committee, for all her assistance.
The partnership between the church and our state's premier chamber ensemble is a joyous one. The Nebraska Chamber Players and the Unitarian Church of Lincoln look forward to more concerts throughout the year!
