There are many non-profit and for-profit arts-related organizations and businesses in Sioux Falls: galleries, museums, theater, music, among many others. For its second Arts Round Table, the Sioux Falls Arts Council will be highlighting three arts businesses that are new or using art in a new way.
Join the Sioux Falls Arts Council for a program and discussion by Sarah Larson of Twetten’s Interior Design, Kyle Wiese of Cliff Hangers Gallery, and Kara Dirkson of the Midwest Fine Art Exchange, on Thursday evening, February 21st from 7:00 to – 9:00 p.m. at the Museum of Visual Materials, 500 N. Main Avenue in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and refreshments will be available. The event is free and open to the public.
Sarah Larson is a second-generation interior designer. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BA in Interior Design in 1989. Although Twetten’s Interior Design is not a new business, they want to start using work from local artists in their interior designing. Sarah will talk about what Twetten’s is doing and how artists can get involved.
Kyle Wiese is the owner of Cliff Hangers Gallery, taking ownership of the gallery from his grandfather Cliff in 2010. Kyle brings a new vision and a fresh young perspective to the art world. He’s a fun and energetic force and working with Kyle is an experience all of its own! Cliff Hangers Gallery recently moved to downtown Sioux Falls and is now located on Phillips Avenue. Kyle will talk about his vision for a the new gallery space.
Kara Dirkson is a veteran of making presentations for the Arts Council. Last year she talked about her new appraisal business, Artísia Fine Art Services. Kara has been appraising artwork since 2010 and her clients include regional museums, non-profit foundations, area colleges, hospitals, private collectors, and insurance companies. Kara will be introducing to the public her new online art business, the Midwest Fine Art Exchange. The MFAE is an art gallery without walls. It will give artists and collectors the opportunity to list, trade, and sell primary and secondary market artwork without geographic limitations.
This is a great program for art aficionados and artists. Art lovers learn about new arts oriented businesses and artists learn how you can work with these businesses!
