Lucky Stradley has been making art of some sort almost her entire life and making a living with her art since 21 years of age. Lucky lives in Hubbell, Nebraska where she has a studio and kiln. Stradley discovered the wonderful world of making faces on functional pottery in May of 2009. "I love mud. I love making faces. I love making faces in the mud. Gosh, I am the happiest when I have mud all over my hands and my apron and a cute little ugly face is looking back at me from the mud."

Visitors to Stagecoach Mall Antiques during the February Art Walk will have an opportunity to meet Stradley and learn first-hand about her work. Stradley’s works will be on display and for sale at Stagecoach Mall Antiques throughout the month of February.

Each month, new artists, new locations and new events are featured for the Fairbury First Friday Art Walk.
