Art gallery near completion
The Capital Gallery, a retail art gallery to be operated by The Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Foundation in the old Woolworth building on Fourth Street, is nearing completion.
Foundation president David Borlaug said the gallery will create a revenue stream for the foundation’s support of the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn.
“It’s a new chapter for us,” he said.
The space also will house the foundation’s offices.
The gallery will be open six days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Sundays.
Inaugural artists to be featured include the late Gary Miller and Minot’s Walter Piehl. Future artists include Bismarck’s Vern Erickson, Monte Yellow Bird Sr. of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, Jessica Wachter, who grew up in Bismarck, Deane Colin Fay of Gackle and Steve Revland, who makes sequoia wood furnishings in Fargo.
Original blown glass, handmade pottery and gifts will be sold in the gallery store.
