If there’s one artist in the family, chances are there may be others. Such is the case for longtime Omaha theatre and music educator Carole Waterman and daughters Lisa Kalentjakos and Marie Adams. The three will showcase their efforts at Benson’s little gallery in August with Three Part Harmony, an intertwining of painting, sculpture and other art objects. An opening reception is set for Friday, Aug. 4, from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

Several years ago, Waterman became interested in creating jewelry with recycled materials, which led her to “wanting to ‘bead’ the world.” After being offered the opportunity to study backstrap weaving in Guatemala, she began to consider the possibilities of weaving natural objects.

Daughter Lisa said if media were people, then clay would be her first love and painting her second. “Nothing comes out of me unless I have hours at my disposal and can dive into the process, losing sense of time and space,” Lisa said. “My background in music and dance seeps through an abstracted humanist element when I paint.”

The quote “life is art - paint your dreams” hangs on the wall of daughter Marie’s art studio, reminding her that each day is an act of creation. “That creativity for me has been expressed in family, home, flowers, food and even painting,” she said. “There is great joy in making your life a work of art.”

The little gallery, powered by Polecat Communications, is located at 5901 Maple Street in downtown Benson. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 3:00 to 6:00pm, Saturday from 10:00am to 1:00pm, the second Sunday of the month from 9:00am to 1:00pm and by appointment.

Three Part Harmony runs through Aug. 31. For more information, call 402.681.1901.
