The American Plains Artists or APA was first organized in 1982 as a small group of artists who banded together to highlight through the variety to be found in the American Plains through their artwork. Paintings and sculptures by over 30 artists from across the United States will be featured. The public is invited to attend this celebration of “Art of the Plains” featuring realistic and representational artworks in traditional media that depict the American Great Plains region–its landscape, wildlife, people, and way of life in historical or modern times.
The Gallery’s regular collections include ancient woods, gemstones, fossils, and Native American arrowheads and artifacts. Some of the most unique items include artwork and music boxes constructed of petrified wood pieces. The gift shop features artwork, jewelry and other treasures from local and regional artists.
