The Art Guild and the Platter Painters spring show opened Wednesday downtown at the Art and Gift Gallery.

The artworks of merit winners (below) advance to the annual ANAC (Association of Nebraska Art Clubs) conference.

From the 300 plus entries, just 26 will be chosen for a ANAC traveling show in 2018.

North Platte artists have had a great deal of success in the annual competition, winning the best of the ANAC show for two straight years -- Patsy Smith in 2016 and Sandra Meyer in 2015.

The annual North Platte show is open through April 30 at the Art and Gift Gallery, 516 N. Dewey on the bricks. Years of effort by the members of the clubs are on display, organizers said. The Platter Painters club is the oldest art club in North Platte. It is now in its 64th year.

A reception will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday April 8, to meet the artists, enjoy refreshments, and see the creative works on display.

The gallery's regular hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

The annual ANAC conference June 7-10 has workshops, meetings and a competition of the best of each art club across the state.
