Nelson Receives Art Award
Senior Jack Nelson is one of Nebraska Christian’s talented art students. During study hall and in his free time, Nelson can often be found sketching awe-inspiring pieces of art. Recently, he submitted a self-portrait in pencil into the Nebraska’s Best exhibition. His work, along with submissions from high school students from 18 southeast Nebraska counties, was reviewed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Art Department.
The submitted works are on display in a show entitled “Nebraska’s Best: High School Artists from Southeast Nebraska,” at the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery on the UNL Campus. The show runs through November 24th.
Due to his outstanding work, Nelson received a $100 dollar award and a notice that his work was particularly special. Nebraska Christian’s art teacher, Mrs. Renate Johansen, stated, “I am really excited that Jackson received the recognition he deserved. He has a lot of talent!”
