A self-proclaimed Neo-Regionalist, Nora Othic continues to explore rural Missouri life with an emphasis on animal husbandry plus a cadre of unusual heroic characters. A recent series includes a carnival sideshow showcasing Greek mythological characters as the main attraction.

"I try to make my work many-layered, both in meaning and technique. A drawing of a bull is just that, an exploration of the form of the actual animal, but it is also an experiment in color, line and composition, and a venture into the psychology of human-bovine relations. There is always an undercurrent of humor in my work. This may just be the fact that I'm depicting a heroic dachshund or an elegant swine, or it may be something more subtle, as in an improbable aqua sky," Nora explains.

Nora hails from Brookfield, Missouri, and studied at the University of Missouri - Columbia. She recently showed at the Strecker-Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas as well as The Late Show Gallery in Kansas City. She last showed in St. Louis in 2015 at Cathy Gregory.
