The downtown North Platte Art and Gift gallery is celebrating its 30th anniversary this month.

The gallery opened its doors on Nov. 28, 1987 with 14 area artists and two rooms of art.

Thirty years later at the same location, the gallery has new artists, three addition rooms of art and a continued commitment to providing a place for the community to showcase their artworks.

The gallery remains a non-profit gallery, focusing on furnishing local artists a place to exhibit their work, and be readily accessible to the public.

A true treasure to the downtown area, the gallery hosts monthly shows that are open to the public, as well as providing space for one-person exhibits, traveling shows, meeting places, area art club shows, classes and workshops.

“You are invited to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary as your art and gift gallery, at a reception from 4-6 p.m. on Nov. 18. There will be food, artists, neighbors, door prizes and sales.

The third gallery room will highlight members’ works, offered at the sale prices of either $30 or $130.

There will be periodic drawings for an abundance of door prizes, as well as a silent auction, where you can pick up some amazing bargains.

Show your support to our art community and plan on attending this significant event.

The gallery is open every week from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday-Saturday at 516 N. Dewey, on the bricks downtown.
