Nebraska Passport Showcase: The Art and Gift Gallery

May 17th, 2013

Picture the Scene at North Platte’s Art and Gift Gallery.
Instead of souvenirs, bring home inspiration. Nebraska’s thriving art community will enchant, enthrall and entertain you. Just picturing the scenes captured by these local artists will conjure up fond memories of your travels and give you a creative boost.

Combined, the five galleries of the Art and Gift Gallery offer one of the largest selections of quality, original art in south-central Nebraska. The artists provide a wide selection of two-dimensional media including watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings; pencil drawings and mixed media pieces, and fine art, nature and landscape photography. Three-dimensional works include pottery, woodcarving, pine-needle basketry and original jewelry.

The Art and Gift Gallery is located at 516 N. Dewey Street in downtown North Platte and can be reached at 308-534-1946.

You can pick up your Passport at any Passport location or the North Platte / Lincoln County Visitors Bureau at 315 W. Eugene Ave., North Platte, NE

You can find a full description of the Nebraska Passport Program online at When you visit any of the attractions listed in the passport, get you passport stamped. There are two places for stamps – one next to the attraction name in the passport (that’s for you to keep) and one on the prize-entry sheet tucked in the back (that’s what you’ll redeem for prizes.)
You’re eligible for prizes for each completed tour as well as for totals of 20 and 40 stamps. At each prize level, you will also be entered into a grand-prize drawing for an iPad mini. An additional drawing for 300 $1 Nebraska Lottery Scratch tickets will be held for all participants 19 years of age or older who turn in passports with at least one stamp.

After your travels are completed and you’ve collected as many stamps as possible, it’s time to claim your prize(s). Simply mail the prize-entry sheet to: Nebraska Tourism Commission, Attn: 2013 Nebraska Passport, PO Box 98907, Lincoln, NE 68509.
