Artists with a uniquely South Dakotan perspective exhibit their work on The Garage's walls, inspiring conversations and questions.


Current Exhibition: Lynn Thorpe: Older and newer

Join us for a special artist reception Thursday, June 14 from 5-7pm

1.LThorpe A matter of time 300.jpg

As one curator put it so simply and well, Lynn Thorpe's work is a   “...visual exploration of physical fact in combination with intellectual meandering.”

Lynn says making art is a way of thinking for her. A way of asking questions about her perceptions of the world, and the complex of relationships involved in living. She says garnering the responses of others to these questions is a marvelous way for her to engage in a dialogue about our diverse and sometimes conflicting experiences in the world.

She uses the sky and land forms because they bound that narrow zone in which what we think of as life takes place. The earth and sky are the seemingly unshakeable imperatives of the human condition and therefore ripe for metaphoric references and the perfect fodder for playing with our expectations.

The show is up now through July 25. Stop in to see it Monday–Friday from 8am–4pm.
