Participants in this year’s exhibition were chosen by a jury comprised of regional photographers, Dan Tackett, Nick Krull, and Jessica Nelson, owner of JD Photography. Awards are given in three exhibit categories– youth (18 and under), adult amateur/hobbyist, and adult experienced/professional.
The competition received over 200 submissions this year, demonstrating the extent of local talent active in furthering the medium of photography in the region. Local photographer and avid rock climber, Sarah Ponwith said, “I love getting to share a moment in time amongst the dirt and grime and pure adrenaline we go through as climbers. Being a part of this exhibit is so incredible as I get to bring my adventure here to share with you.”
The jurors selected 58 photos by 38 photographers for this outstanding exhibition of mountain-inspired photography. The Rapid City Arts Council will provide cash awards for first, second, and third place participants selected by the jury in all three categories, plus an award for Best of Showhe community is encouraged to vote forthe People’s Choice Award through the closing of the exhibit.

Ruth Brennan Gallery
This collection of mixed-media paintings, drawings, and prints explores the concept of wildness in the natural world, reconstituted ecological sites, urban spaces, and the artist’s studio. These works were inspired by the Loyola Dunes Restoration project along the shores of Lake Michigan, the Big Marsh eco-development site on Chicago’s southeast side, and the North Branch of the Chicago River in Harms Woods Forest Preserve.
Kaye Buchman is a Chicago based multi-disciplinary artist and educator. She received her BFA from Illinois State University with an emphasis in printmaking, and her MFA degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she studied drawing and painting. Her multi-media works focus on ecological themes and sustainable practices. This will be Kaye’s second exhibition at the Dahl. Her first show here opened with rave reviews in November of 2016.
