For the Love of Art
A collective exhibit that celebrates the one-of-a-kind style of every artist is on display at the Granary Rural Cultural Center. “Create! On the Prairie” showcases 60 unique pieces of art made by 38 different artists from across South Dakota and surrounding states.
The Dacotah Prairie Museum launched the project this spring by spreading the word through social media that they were in search of anyone interested in sharing their artwork. Professional artists, high school students, and hobby artists all responded and are featured side-by-side to proudly represent our region’s diverse art scene. Each contributor was able to use the media of their choice, resulting in a collaboration that includes everything from painting, drawing, and printmaking to photography, 3D art, jewelry, and beadwork. // — JENNY ROTH
THE EXHIBIT IS OPEN TO VISITORS THURSDAYS AND FRIDAYS FROM 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM AND SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS FROM 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30. A CLOSING RECEPTION DURING WHICH SOME OF THE ARTISTS WILL BE ON HAND TO MEET WITH AND DISCUSS THEIR ART WILL TAKE PLACE OCTOBER 1 FROM 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. THE GRANARY IS LOCATED NORTHEAST OF ABERDEEN.
