The 30th annual Wings Over the Platte art exhibit and sales kicks off on Friday, February 15th and we're inviting one and all to a free reception that evening.

The opening reception will feature music by pianist Ron Kruse, light hors d'oeuvres, and a first look at the this annual show that features almost 50 artists. All work is inspired by life on the Platte River and takes many forms from painting to sculpture to photography and much more. Some art depicts the literal beauty of the Platte while others take a more interpretive view, which creates one of the most interesting and diverse shows on Stuhr's 2019 schedule. 

This year's featured artist is photographer Jorn Olsen. Jorn's photographs have been published in books, calendars, billboards, magazines, and newspapers throughout the world, including The London Times, Focus Magazine, Readers Digest International, and Nebraska Life Magazine. He has also won awards, including Best of Show, at photography competitions and juried art fairs. His current body of work is primarily oriented towards Landscape, Nature, Wildlife, and Nebraska Cultural themes. Some of his most popular works are the striking landscape panoramas he creates by stitching multiple images together and can be printed up to 20 feet long.

There is no charge for this reception. Wings Over the Platte runs February 15 - April 7 and is open from 9 am - 5 pm Mondays through Saturdays and Noon - 5 pm on Sundays. Pieces are for sale. For more information contact the museum at (308) 385-5316.
