The Art and Gift Gallery on the bricks is presenting a special showing of the woodcarving art of Paul Jeske during the month of May.

The gallery recently lost this long-time member and talented woodcarver when he passed away March 3 after a long illness. 

In addition to being a long-time member of the Art and Gift Gallery, Paul belonged to the North Platte Woodcarvers. His mastery of woodcarving skills was evident in many Best of Show awards he earned at art shows and woodcarving shows, including several awards he won at NebraskaLand Days Woodcarving shows and the Association of Nebraska Art Clubs annual art shows over the years. 

Paul was as much respected for his gracious and sincere nature, as he was for his highly recognized talent at wood carving. His light-hearted nature and wisdom will be greatly missed at the gallery. 

Paul’s work is on display through the month in the front room at the Art and Gift Gallery.

For more information, about this exhibit contact the gallery at 534-1946 or visit our website at npartandgiftgallery.com. The Art and Gift Gallery is an artists’ cooperative located downtown at 516 N. Dewey in North Platte. Visiting hours are from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays.
