Longtime artist and art teacher Rhonda Earith is “thrilled” to see her work in Papillion once again.

After being exhibited in the galleries of Papillion City Hall and Sump Memorial Library, Earith’s pieces are on display at Papillion Landing Community Recreation Center until Halloween.

“I feel really blessed to have so much support from my family, friends and community,” Earith said in a message.

As a painter, Earith loves to use animals in her works.

Most of his pieces are commissioned, such as murals for businesses and paintings of pets and landscapes for individuals.

“When I finish a project for someone, I really enjoy seeing them so excited,” Earith said in a text message. “It warms my heart that they want something I created in their home.”

Earith said he found a love of creation while growing up on a farm near Nehawka, Nebraska. Her serious passion for her started in high school, having been inspired by her art teacher. Earith went on to learn the trade in college, earning a degree in arts education.

After graduation, Earith became an art teacher. His first position was teaching from kindergarten through the 12th grade at Louisville public schools. Then Earith taught sixth through twelfth grades at Conestoga Junior-Senior High School.

Most recently, Earith taught elementary and middle schools at Papillion La Vista Community Schools for 15 years. She is now holding a long-term replacement position while supervising student teachers for the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Earith said she enjoys teaching others new artistic techniques. Once they have created something of their own, seeing the student’s excitement is worth it.

“As an educator, I really hope I can inspire students to try new things and experience that satisfaction when they create something with their own hands,” Earith said in a text.
