Jan Cline-Zimmerman May Artist of Month; Open House Set At Swedish Heritage Center

The Nebraska Loess Hills RC&D Council has adopted the Traditional Corn Project as a new project and has brought back the Artist of the Month project.

The Culture Center students, in Macy, are learning to grow and process their sacred white corn in the traditional manner. In the fall, after the corn is harvested, a demonstration will be given to the RC&D Council.

After a hiatus, the Artist of the Month project has been resurrected. The Swedish Heritage Center in Oakland will take the lead scheduling the artists, writing news articles, and working with the artists. The Artist of the Month for May is Jan Cline-Zimmerman of Craig. Jan is a person of many talents. In addition to painting, she’s a song writer and is a member of the Troubadours, a popular music group that does Celtic and other genre of tunes. Jan’s award- winning paintings, done in several mediums, will be on display and for sale. The open house will be May 3, 2015, 11:00-3:00 at the Swedish Heritage Center, 301 N Charde Ave in Oakland. For more information, contact Julie Johnson at 402-685-5652.
