Fairbury Artist Wins Nebraska Life Magazine’s Art Award for 2013, Fairbury NebraskaFairbury Artist Wins Nebraska Life Magazine’s Art Award for 2013

At the annual convention of the Association of Nebraska Art Clubs recently in Alliance, Fairbury artist Sherry Joubert won Nebraska Life Magazine’s Art Award for her work, “Peace on the Plains.” Nebraska Life’s Assistant Editor Alan J. Bartels viewed all of the entries in the show before choosing Joubert’s painting, which depicts the Steele City Stone Church at Steele City, Neb.
“Although the painting shows just one church in one small Nebraska community, it captures a big slice of what is important in the lives of many Nebraskans,” said Bartels. “Whether people are devoutly religious or not, churches play a central role in the lives of our citizens and in our communities. It is for that reason that her painting was chosen for our award.”

Although unknown to Bartels at the time of the art show, the editor had previously met Joubert while attending a Fairbury’s First Friday event earlier this year. On a subsequent visit, Fairbury businesswoman Julie Katz took Bartels to Steele City’s annual flea market, where he saw the church in person for the first time. “I was struck by the beauty of the stone church at daybreak as tractors arriving for the parade passed by it,” Bartels said. “It should be in a thousand paintings.”
