A Celebration of Quotable Women Artists", the annual member exhibit of the Nebraska Women's Caucus of the Arts
Kearney Hub, August, 2004

"I shop therefore I am," a quote from Barbara Kruger, is paired with this acrylic painting by Nicolette Bonnstetter.

As an art educator for over thirty years, my passion in the arts is helping others discover the joy art can bring to each of our lives through questioning and discovery. Because I teach at the college level, I have students of all ages and backgrounds. Listening to these students and listening to my family, I know we all have full houses. Houses of old and new things that have been found, things we have been given, or things we cherish. The hope is these objects will fit somewhere someday. this particular painting shows objects that are associated with each of the members of my house, the objects form memories that make up who we are.
