The Artists’ Cooperative Gallery celebrates its 35th anniversary
January 6th, 2011
Omaha, NE – The Artists’ Cooperative Gallery will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a red carpet reception, this Saturday. Lori Elliott Bartle is a local artist and a member of the gallery. She said artwork from over 40 past members will be on display including the works of Larry Ferguson, Bob Willis, and John Miller.
“Some of the region’s best known and most talented artists have been members of the artist cooperative gallery and we’re really delighted to have many of them showing work with us this month.”
Bartle said the gallery is a cooperative venture, because all members work together to operate the gallery.
“Anytime you walk in the door you are being greeted by one of the artist who has work in the gallery. We are a cooperative so we all have a great investment in seeing it succeed. The Omaha community has supported us and there aren’t many art organizations that have lasted this length of time. We are very proud to be a part of that history.”
The red carpet reception begins at 5pm, January 8th, and the special exhibit will run through January 30th at the Artists’ Cooperative gallery located in the Old Market in down town Omaha.
