The MonDak Heritage Center welcomes the Artists of the Black Hills, a group of 32 artists and 4 member galleries, with a special opening reception on Friday, July 31, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. A number of the organization’s signature artists will be on hand to discuss their work, and refreshments will also be available.
Artists of the Black Hills was founded in 2005 as an organization of professional artists, artisans and galleries with a common goal of establishing the Black Hills region as a prime source for art of the highest quality. To that end, ABH sponsors a major annual show and sale, and has undertaken a nationwide advertising campaign. In addition, they work with regional arts organizations, state agencies and commercial entities to foster greater growth and appreciation of the Black Hills as an art center.
Artists of many different mediums are taking part in the Works from the Artists of the Black Hills show, including landscape artist Sandra Newman, watercolorist BJ Stych, intaglio printer Nancy K. Bowman, photographer Ray Tysdal, jeweler, painter and sculptor Bryan Bortnem, beading artist Anna Achtziger and collage artist Carol Lee Hilgemann. Membership in ABH is open to those artists whose work demonstrates a consistently superior level of competence in their chosen medium. Residency in the Black Hills region is not a requirement for membership in ABH, but a history of presence in the area through gallery or museum showings, or other public installations is necessary.
