If You Build It They Will Come: A Contemporary Ecological Survey in Omaha

Birdhouse Collectible, 1111 N. 13th St., Suite 123

Artist talk: April 28, 2p.m., 577.0711

Artist Heather Johanson is exhibiting drawings, etchings and paintings based on “intervention and observation.”  The Omaha-based artist has been taking out lawn and planting habitat in her Dundee-home yard since she moved there in 2008. “I am interested in seduction – many plants that attract night flying insects use scent to attract pollinators. I use a lot of these plants in my garden. Occasionally, I will set out a black light to attract insects at night and photograph them…I am interested in night flying insects because they are mysterious, less known and less valued,” Johanson said.  “Night Flying Insects,” a painting on paper, represents night flying insects she’s observed in the past three years.
