ANSEL ADAMS AND VERNON BREJCHA ART WORK ON DISPLAY UNTIL THE END OF THIS MONTH…

Filed under: prairie musings, Artists — Peg Britton @ 3:22 pm

Photographs by Ansel Adams and glass works by Vern Brejcha are currently on display at the Ellsworth Area Art Gallery.

Ansel Adams posters, with the authentic Ansel Adams seal, are on loan from Jim Black, Cedar, Ks.  Black worked with the famous photographer, Ansel Adams, for 14 years, and has many stories to tell about his association with the artist.

The EAAC will hold a reception on Friday, October 29, beginning at noon.  The public is welcome to come in and visit with Jim Black who owns the Ansel Adams’ posters, and Vern Brejcha.

Artist Vernon Brejcha was reared and educated in Holyrood.  It was his Holyrood farm life and the prairie that have given rise to and inspired the themes for his blown glass work.

His glass work has been exhibited from Europe to Japan. It is also in collections and museums from Russia to Australia.   His exquisite blown glass, which is taken from his rich Kansas heritage, is on display at the gallery.

There is a paperweight on display from his student days at the University of Wisconsin in 1969.  Other pieces are from the 70s through the 90s.   He has been producing art objects for over fifty years.

He taught at the University of Kansas and following his retirement, built a shop on the outskirts of Lawrence where he still creates his masterpieces.

The Ellsworth Area Art Center, 223 Douglas St.,  will host a new display starting November 1.  It will be a showing of mixed media paintings by Rebecca Drach and Carol Long’s pottery, both of St. John, Ks.

The Smoky Hill Pickers will meet at the Ellsworth Area Art Center, 223 Douglas, on Sunday, November 7th, at 6 p.m.  Everyone is welcome.
