Bailey and Pearson Art Display

The artwork of 2023 Holdrege High School graduate Jillian Bailey and of the late Brad Pearson will be displayed at the Spirit of Grace Church, 413 West Ave. The church will be open for viewing the art from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays in July. A Meet and Greet reception is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. Thursday, July 11.

Bailey is pursuing a career in digital illustration through the CG Spectrum Art Academy. She has loved art since she was a young child and fostered that talent through high school where she was a member of the National Art Honor Society. The art on display is part of the portfolio she is developing through her classes.

Pearson was a 1963 HHS graduate who started loving art from an early age. He practiced his skills on classmates’ papers and notebooks and then on ivory soap as a Boy Scout. In 1983, he moved on to bronze sculptures. One of his sculptures is displayed at St. Andrew’s Museum in Scotland. In 1984, Brad drew 11 pictures for the First National Bank’s Calendar for their 100th anniversary. Besides bronze, he also created art with watercolors and pastels. Pearson died in 2019.
