They invite the viewer to peer into their gathering -- but only from a distance.

I first met Myron Heise nearly 20 years ago. His association with the John G. Neihardt Foundation (where he is artist in residence) and Neihardt Foundation board members such as Maxine Kessinger, a long-time champion of his works, brings Myron Heise back home to Nebraska each year to reconnect with his past.

Myron Heise 1984

Mr. Heise's show, "Country Days, City Nights," combines two diverse landscapes of his life — and does so with honesty and eloquence. His works show the contrast of concrete and farmland, of day and night, of life on city streets and in country villages.

By intertwining and juxtaposing them, he gives us a deeper understanding of who Myron Heise, the artist and the person, is.
