<p>Keith Jacobshagen in his Lincoln, Nebraska studio, 1985.</p> Jacobshagen’s Gold

After 40 years of painting prairie landscapes in which nuanced skies get top billing, one might wonder if Keith Jacobshagen has tired of his subject.

“I’ll paint until I can’t paint anymore,” Jacobshagen said in a recent interview.

His work is to be found these days in collections worldwide, the product of...

Final Project, Space for More

The face of Lincoln’s gallery scene is changing in two big ways this spring.
