Moms Club Gives Belt New Image

Ellen Struve writes plays and she’s artistic director for the Shelterbelt Theatre. That’s why she served refreshments at a fund-raising performance that filled all 50-plus seats for 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche.

“All board members take turns working nights. Everybody does everything,” she notes. Ellen  poured wine while executive director Craig Bond sold tickets.

Now the theater runs Shelterbelt with Love 11,...

<p>  On Golden Pond</p> Count The Love

Let me count the ways that love came my way last week in a dozen different performances. What stands out from On Golden Pond at the Omaha Community Playhouse, the nine playlets in From Shelterbelt with Love 11 and the Blue Man Group?

<p>  The Seafarer</p> Cold Cream 1/25

Maybe the fact that the Home and Garden Network so often airs in our house explains why I was even more taken than usual with a Jim Othuse set design for On Golden Pond at the Omaha Community Playhouse.

<p>  The Gardener of Eden</p> Back to the Garden

Entering RNG Gallery this month might evoke the sensation of entering a garden, not unlike the one artist and owner Rob Gilmer’s father created for his family on Long Island’s North Shore. As Merritt G. “Gil” Gilmer writes in his memoirs, “Chaff from the Haymow, Musings and Memories of a Ninety-Year-Old,”   “The old orchard was an orchard when we first came. It soon became a jungle of trees and bushes. It was a...

Watermarks

Like the first renowned printmaker Albrecht Durer centuries before her, Nebraska-based artist Karen Kunc has made her mark in printmaking including a monumental trip to Italy to practice her craft.

 

Last spring, Kunc, Professor of Art at University of Nebraska-Lincoln since 1983, worked as Artist in Residence at the prestigious Venice Printmaking Studio in Italy, the country where Durer famously brought the...
