KIMMEL GALLERY DISPLAYS WORK
MURRAY WILDLIFE ARTIST
When you're in Nebraska City for the Applejack Festival this weekend, stop to see
the art exhibit at Kimmel Gallery by one of Murray's residents, retired high school
teacher and wildlife artist, Greg Hartel.
Greg is a Wisconsin native who taught at Bellevue East Hish School for 30 years
before retiring. While at East High, he taught A.P. Biology, Biology, Environmental
Education, Studio Art and Stage Craft. He completed a B.S. from the University of
Wisconsin Stevens Point in 1971, M.S.T. University of Nebraska, in '77 and a B.A.
in Studio Art from Bellevue University in '97. Currently, Greg is employed with the
Fisheries Division of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission in Aquatic Education.
He teaches fishing, fish identification, about frogs and turtles and fish printing.
Hartel has integrated his lifelong love of art with his passion of wildlife and nature.
While his senior show at Bellevue University was in ceramic, wood and bronze sculpture,
his primary mediums are pen and ink and watercolor drawings. His drawings depict
wildlife and scenes from nature. Great effort is focused on details of the anatomy of
his subjects, resulting in a combination of technical biology illustrations and studio art.
Kimmel Gallery is located downstairs at the Morton-James Library, 923 1st Corso, in
Nebraska City. For the easiest access to the exhibit, please enter through the south
Hours for the exhibit are the same as library hours, Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. -
6 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., closed Sundays.
Greg's art exhibit will continue to run through October 5th at Kimmel Gallery, so, if you
can't make it this week, you'll still have about 2 more weeks to check it out.
