Pavilion Spotlight: gallery openings

Rapid City native Bryan Christiansen plays on our curiosity with his Trophy Hunter gallery.

"So, what he's been trying to do through his art and psyche is going out and rebuilding animals. So, these are all found objects: mostly chairs, couches, and bedding," said David Merhib, the Director of the Visual Arts Center at the Washington Pavilion.

Across the hallway is George Prisbe's work.

"One of my favorite landscape artists in South Dakota, if not the region," said Merhib. "He is so meticulous. It takes him weeks to create one work of art."

Prisbe painter 20 new pieces for this County Lines gallery, which features counties all across South Dakota.

Prisbe and Christiansen share a love for creation and conceptualizing an overall installation.

"We have a lot of kids that come in that explore George's work and then they'll run in here and say, 'Oh my gosh! A deer! Look at this!' "
