Anne Hall Gallery Opening

Join us on Saturday, June 22nd, from 11 am to 3 pm for the opening of the Anne Hall Gallery. Anne Hall, former Executive Director of NLCHM, dedicated 20 years to making the museum what it is today. In honor of her and all of the wonderful work she has done over the years, we are converting her old office-space into an art gallery. This gallery will show historic art from our collection and will later feature current local artists. We will be opening with a show titled “Painting History.” It will feature scenes of landscapes and buildings painted by historic artists, including Maude Wanker, Lincoln City’s most prestigious painter. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. This gallery will rotate often, so come see it while it’s up.
