On the corner of 6th and Main in downtown Rapid City, Prairie Edge stands two stories high and stretches out for half a block. The brick, wood and glass storefront have been restored to its original 1886 construction when it opened as a dry goods store which eventually became a rowdy cowboy saloon. Prairie Edge opened its doors after renovation in 1993 to showcase six galleries: Fine Art, Plains Indian, Books & Music, Trading Co, Italian Glass Bead, and Sioux Trading Post.

Inside, the hardwood floors and polished cabinetry bring to mind the spirit of the Old West, 
while the soft sound of a Lakota flute evokes the mystique of the Great Plains Indian.

The works of regional and nationally acclaimed artists are on display in the second floor 
Fine Art Gallery. Please enjoy this video of my paintings, Prairie Edge and its surrounding 
attractions and landscape.
