The Association of Nebraska Art Clubs is the only club in the United States that supports all the art clubs in the state, hosting a conference every year. The top 25 pieces at the ANAC conference and show travel the state through the year.
You can join ANAC by contacting a Nebraska art club such as the North Platte Art Guild. Dues are only $12 a year. ANAC publishes a spring and fall newsletter and is a great way to network with other Nebraska artists, publicize your work and learn and grow as an artist, Perez said.
