The students work was selected to embody quality and exceptional creativity in Nebraska Schools. Kaylee Rohde is the daughter of Phil and Karla Rohde. Her work is titled “Being Different” and is a linoleum print. Her artwork consists of a beautifully colored ant. She states that the meaning of her work is “Ants are always black or brown, always being what people expect can be boring, it’s nice to be colorful”. Katherine Paitz daughter of Scott and Heather Paitz created a mixed media work using recycled magazine to create a very unique coffee cup she calls “Morning Brew”. She says this about her work: “ Different subject matter, compositions and colors make different people happy. I made this using recycled magazines in colors and prints that I enjoy and yes, I do enjoy my morning coffee.” We are excited to be represented at the art show by these two wonderful artists.
