Small gallery reached by a gravel road outside of downtown Spearfish. The gallery is small and the artist is award winning for his “termespheres”. The globes hanging from the ceiling are interesting, most tell a story so you have to look at them closely. The...More

Termespheres are paintings on spheres, invented by the proprietor of this gallery. It's conveniently located just outside of Spearfish, and well worth the visit. My favorites were whimsical spheres, and one with Albert Einstein. The spheres are unique expressions of art.
