Gift Horses

For many people, artists included, horses have represented little more than an object, albeit one of beauty and strength, whether on a field of honor, a Western landscape or racetrack.

Boats on Land

“I know what I want to make art about” artist Chad Rutter said. “The themes stay consistent, though the media may change. Along a circuitous path I picked up a skill set, and have made myself a broad tool bag.”

Spellbound

Any new art exhibit in Omaha that comes from south of the border naturally raises certain expectations of work rich in Mexican heritage and socio-political issues from such masters as Jose Orozco, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
