Birds and Bison Sold at 37th Annual Artist of the Plains Show and Sale

The 37th Annal Artist of the Plains Art Show and Sale, sponsored by the Augustana University Center for Western Studies was held last weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn, downtown Sioux Falls.
The sale of five bird carvings plus the award for 2nd place 3-D Best of Show would have been enough to make participating as an artist worth while, but then the two bison sculptures I had on display also were sold as a package deal!
Nuthatches on Barn Door Hinge, Downy Woodpecker, and Dancing Sand Hill Crane
all sold for a total of $625.   (I have been advised to raise my prices)

"Two Agaist One" carved in 1983 from a chunk of  an  Elm tree that once stood behind the
Howlin Vision Clinic on S Western Ave.  Sold with  Ash Wood Bison, once inside
an ash tree downed by 2013 ice storm on S Holbrook Ave
