Art Night at Wilshire Business Suites

Guest Artists:  Ponca Tribe

The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska has been creating works of art in a series of meetings called The Healing Arts.  They have a rich history of restoring, preserving, and protecting their culture and customs through educational opportunities and programming at several different locations across the state.  Various art forms were available weekly to tribal members and their children, family members, and friends.  The participation was joyful, very heartfelt, and always memorable.  They discussed memories and music from their past, technology, family dynamics and parenting roles, and applied these ideas to their artistic selves using painting, sculpting, jewelry, essential oils, nature bundles, and writing.  Parts of this project were displayed in the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska office at 1701 E Street.  Facilitators of the group:  Jenika Long, Mary Robertson, and Jolene John-Beckstrom.

Guest Artist: Annie West

In looking for a way to use my spare time and be creative, I started making jewelry. I found that this pastime helped me focus on something other than my crazy monkey mind. I started going to garage sales and second hand stores searching for broken and discarded jewelry that I could make into something new. I’ve made unique bracelets and necklaces that are truly one of a kind.

Art Night at Wilshire Business Suites

Join us for the First Friday Art Night! We have 3 artists each month. Our regular artists are:

Deanna Long with dklStudios

While earning my Bachelors in Art History from the University of Nebraska, I saw some truly amazing art from all around the world. Inspired by the art and artifacts from ancient cultures, I try to create unique and beautiful pieces hoping to bring the feeling and character of an artifact into a new piece through design and texture.  I use traditional clay to make pottery and precious metal clay to make jewelry.  I love how clay picks up any texture so I also play with that in some of my jewelry pieces.

And Kolleen Meyer-Krikac with Balanced Life Nature Photography.

I have a passion for helping people to create balance in their lives. My coaching and counseling business is named Balanced Life and my book is entitled How to Create Your Balanced Life. As a life coach and counselor, I encourage my clients to find balance in nature.  I bring a little bit of nature into my office space through my nature photography. I want to provide a space that feels calm and peaceful so I display my photography on the walls of our office building, Wilshire Business Suites.

Our Featured Guest Artist is:

John E. Coffey

John found a love of nature a long time ago and passion for photographing scenic and wildlife has become a cathartic release.  John has found that his avocation is in alignment with the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson who said, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”  John has a web site currently under construction, but he can be found on Facebook.
