The West Nebraska Arts Center has freshened up its look this summer, with some new paint and carpet in the gallery.
Assisting the center with its endeavor was the Oregon Trail Community Foundation, with a grant of $5,000.
“The grant helps us to refresh and energize the gallery,” said Mason Burbach, executive director at WNAC.
He added that the center is thankful to community leaders, such as the Oregon Trail Community Foundation, and its emphasis on making sure WNAC is a place the community can continue to enjoy.
“We had about 200 local artists come through here last year,” he said. “A lot of them were community students, and it’s the first time they have displayed their art. The new items make the gallery a fresh and inviting space to show artwork.”
Volunteers from the J.G. Elliot Insurance Center in Scottsbluff painted the gallery and the offices. The volunteers spent more than 26 hours painting and used 12 gallons of paint.
“We are very grateful for their help,” said Burbach. The painting of the gallery and offices was part of the company’s annual community service project.
The center also received new carpet to cover about 305 square yards of the gallery and offices, he said.
