September Events at Minden Opera House

(Minden, Nebraska) The Minden Opera House kicks off its 2022-23 Season with a special performance of jazz music, paired with an Artist Reception and bar specials on September 24, 2022.

Sondra L. Johnson and Joseph McHale are a mother & son duo on display September and October in the Minden Opera House Gallery. For Sondra Johnson, a career in art is the fulfilment of a childhood dream. After graduating with a B.A. in studio art from Bryn Mawr College, Johnson enrolled at the Frudakis Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia and spent the next two years learning classical figurative and portrait sculpture from famed American sculptor EvAngelos Frudakis. Most of her more than 100 sculpture installations in over 25 states and Canada have been created since moving to Nebraska. 

Johnson has exhibited in numerous juried art shows and has won People’s Choice, Best in Show, and Children’s Choice in venues such as the Stuhr Museum Wings Over the Platte Exhibit, Sioux Falls Sculpture Walk, Salina Sculpture Walk, Hutchinson Sculpture Walk and Ames, IA Sculpture Walk. Recently she was a finalist in the ARC International Exhibition of Realism in Art. Her favorite projects are private commissions. The challenge of designing original artwork to meet a customer’s needs or wishes is a unique and exciting journey for both the artist and the patron.
