The Old Feed Store Art Center in Bassett, Nebraska

by Beth Cole

There is a most lovely art oasis for Nebraska art in Bassett, Nebraska, thanks to vision, many hands, and a multitude of big hearted givers. The Old Feed Store Art Center opened in early 2018 with an exhibit of Joel Sartore’s Photo Ark in cooperation with the Museum of Nebraska Art. Since then, other Nebraska artists, musicians and poets have shown and performed in the space.

I am thrilled to be showing my work in this beautiful place through the month of October, 2018. With gallery lighting and museum style gallery display, the artwork seems to come alive.

These artists, along with many, many other leaders and volunteers, have all worked together to create something with meaning and purpose. I am so impressed.

A beautiful Gale family private collection of masterful works is also on display.

I hope you will get a chance to stop if you are anywhere close. The center is open four days a week by a staff of volunteers.
