“In addition to providing world class music we host a visual art exhibit, featuring a different local artist each year,” according to the Friends of Historic Boonville. “Nora’s unique style is sure to please everyone’s artistic taste.”

“Calling herself a Neo-Regionalist, Nora Othic currently resides in Brookfield, Missouri. Working in oil, pastel and watercolor, Othic's style is always representational. She notes, ‘The subject is never the subject; a painting of two houses is more about placing geometrical shapes next to organic ones and a watercolor of a country road is actually an arrangement of values and colors.’ Her paintings reflect her lifestyle and focus on the ordinary aspects of life, exploring the relationship between humanity and how we interact with our environment. Humor is a constant undercurrent of Othic’s work, elevating everyday objects and scenes to an iconic status almost Pop Art in nature,” According to the Sager | Braudis Gallery, which is located in the heart of Columbia.

Admission is free to the exhibit and artwork is available for purchase.

This evening, an open house reception will be held between 6 - 8 p.m. On Thursday and Friday the exhibit will be open between 6 - 7:15 p.m. On Saturday, Othic’s art will be available between Noon - 7:15 p.m.
