“Inspired Through Stitching: Prairie Stitchers Guild Biennial Exhibition Prairie Landing & Dacotah Galleries (Sept 24-Nov 5) Recently completed works by members of the Prairie Stitchers Embroidery Guild, plus inspiration pieces and stories for a love of stitching will be featured in this biennial display of over 60 items.  Members of the guild, officially known as Prairie Stitchers – Heartland Region of the Embroidery Guild of America are from the Aberdeen area and throughout South Dakota.  The guild has a membership of about 15 people.   

“Life’s Reflections” A Retrospective Exhibition of Paintings by Donna Wester Lamont Gallery (Oct 1-Nov 26) Over 70 paintings will be on display in this retrospective exhibition, representing many years of artistry by Donna Wester.  Donna is a native South Dakotan who spent some years in California, where she enjoyed developing her skills with paint and brush, taking art classes which nurtured and grew her love of painting.  Donna’s artwork is beautiful in its detail and features a variety of subjects, especially animals, wildlife, people, and flowers.  “I’m drawn to painting living things,” she says.  Donna currently resides in Aberdeen.


“Dacotah Prairie Museum: 50 Years & Growing…” 50th anniversary display now on exhibit. A commissioned model of the DPM building was handcrafted by Randy Pfutzenreuter and is on display. Exhibition cabinets will address the different areas of museum activities; collections, education and exhibits along with telling the stories of our museum beginning and history.  Life size standees of founders “speak” to tell their stories. On display are rare artifacts such as the Harvey Dunn painting “Leave the Past Behind”, a watercolor print by Oscar Howe “Ghost Dancer”, Native American artifacts, and other significant Brown County history items. This exhibit is an interesting, informative, and fun experience for everyone! Thanks to 3M for their 2020 grant monies for this project.
