Northern Plains Watercolor Society Members’ 19th Annual Celebration of Light | Various Artists
Inez & Milton Shaver Gallery
08.15.14 - 10.08.14
This group show features over 30 watercolor artists. Each year the selected juror of this show offers a companion workshop in the Black Hills area.
Northern Plains Watercolor Society, in cooperation with all artists, promotes interest, education and appreciation for watercolor painting both within the organization and for anyone interested in art and arts organizations. A dozen local artists founded the society in June of 1995 to promote arts throughout the Black Hills and the surrounding plains states. Through workshops, educational programming, lectures and shows the new organization hoped to enrich the cultural understanding of our community.
This exhibit is presented by the Rapid City Arts Council with generous support from Anton C. Kaiser.

Each of the members has been juried into the organization by a selection committee made up of a cross-section of ABH artists representing the entire body of the membership. The intent of this organization is to make evident the large pool of artistic talent in the Black Hills area and the impact that art has made, and continues to make on the quality of life in the Black Hills.

Into The Dark: Artists Exploring Dark Matter | Various Artists
Ruth Brennan Gallery & Dahl Arts Center Lobby
07.25.14 - 08.30.14
The Sanford Underground Research Facility (Sanford Lab) mounted a two-part exhibit that debuted during the facility's 2013 Neutrino Day science festival. Into the Dark | Artists Exploring Dark Matter features work by 22 prominent South Dakota artists, who were asked to imagine one of nature's most profound mysteries: dark matter. In addition to these 22 works of art, photographs from Matt Kapust, multimedia specialist at Sanford Lab, and Steve Babbitt, photography professor at Black Hills State University will be on display at the Dahl. Both photographers chronicled the transformation of the former Homestake gold mine into a world-class research facility. The result, “Deep Photography,” is a collection of 25 stunning images.
This exhibit is made possible through a partnership between Sanford Underground Research Facility and the Rapid City Arts Council. Sponsors of the exhibit include Creekside Medical Clinic and Security First Bank.

Emerging Visual Artists
Woven Works | Terry Slagel
Bruce H. Lien Cultural Cafe & Gallery
08.26.14 – 09.26.14
Terry Slagel is a textile artist, whose exhibit entitled “Woven Works” combines old world techniques with both traditional and contemporary color combinations and fiber selections.
Many pieces mix a variety of yarns with exotic fleece resulting in three dimensional works bursting with color and texture. She takes customary weave structures, patterns and wools to new artistic levels. The particular weave structures inspiring this collection are of European and Scandinavian origin and date back hundreds of years.
The RCAC’s Emerging Visual Artists Program showcases the talents of local artists and provides a cohesive structure to help artists organize, plan and sustain creative careers, and increase satisfaction in their art practices.
