Passageway Gallery

We are a cooperative gallery established in 1981 giving local artists a place to show and sell their fine art at reasonable prices. Our location is in the historic Poppleton Block, built in 1886 by Andrew Poppleton. The Poppleton Block was designated an Omaha Landmark in 1982, and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Andrew Jackson Poppleton (1830-1896) was the second mayor of Omaha, in office for a few months from July to September of 1858. After his stint as mayor, Poppleton was a prominent real estate businessman and lawyer. Poppleton Street in Omaha is named after the former mayor. The gallery operates completely through the volunteer efforts of the artists whose work is on display. Every artist member spends 2 – 4 shifts each month greeting visitors, handling sales functions and performing duties necessary to the successful operation of the gallery. Each visitor is able to visit with an actual artist member of the gallery. Membership is held to a total of 22 artists, providing a blend of two dimension and three dimensional art that is sure to please many different artistic tastes. The Passageway is a very active participant in the Old Market Gallery Walks held once a month in the summer and spring. First Friday openings each month feature one or two gallery member’s works, accompanied by hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. Gallery Walks and First Fridays are free and open to the public.
