815 Arts hosts Neil Orians, Jamie Oehlrich, and Artists on the Edge this First Friday, April 6.

The Grand Manse Gallery

Jamie Oehlrich will be featured at The Grand Manse Gallery this month. A lifelong artist, Oehlrich’s primary focus is charcoal drawings, though in recent years, Oehlrich has also begun to add color to her work. “Color has changed my drawings immensely and has given a different emotional effect to each piece based on the color palette,” she said. The pieces she plans to show on First Friday will be composed with charcoal and soft pastels. A graphic design student at Doane College, Oehlrich plans to graduate this May.

Art displayed on First Fridays at the Grand Manse will remain on the walls and be available to be viewed by personal request until the following First Friday. The Grand Manse is located at 129 N 10th St. To view the display, enter the central doors on the eastern side of the building off 10th St., or the northeastern doors on the north side of the building off P St.


Artists on the Edge at Indigo Bridge Books and 815 O St.

Though 815 Arts will not be showing art at 815 O St. much longer, Open Studio's Artists on the Edge have at least this one more opportunity to share their work with the public at 815 O St. during April’s First Friday. And thanks to a partnership with Indigo Bridge Books, selected art from the Artists on the Edge will also be on display throughout the bookstore. Printmaker Neil Orians will be featured in The Woodroom at Indigo Bridge.

Located in the Creamery Building at 701 P St., Indigo Bridge Books provides an opportunity for the Artists on the Edge to share their art throughout the month, as it will remain on display until the next First Friday.

Open Studio is a collaboration between the Lancaster County Community Mental Health Center, Lincoln Parks and Recreation, and CentrePointe, that provides an outlet for artists living with substance use or mental health problems to express themselves. Artists on the Edge is a group of over 200 artists with a passion to create and a desire to further the discussion of Outsider Art. Outsider Art is art created outside the boundaries of traditional art education, technique and culture.

815 Arts is an organization that aims to serve the visual and performing artists and musicians of the city of Lincoln by providing spaces where their work can be showcased and celebrated. We are currently located at 815 O Street in the old Pepperberg Cigar Factory under the O Street overpass and around the corner from Gallery 9 and Noyes Art Gallery.
