This collection of video and stills represents the last two weeks of the project (from my observation point) at the studio and the first days at the Washington Pavilion. We all enjoyed the journey and some of us noted how much it was like the land of Oz- with witches- wizards- and yes- flying monkeys and friendships old and new.  How many nights and days do any of us spend seeing ideas becoming realities?  As usual, I had more ideas than time.

The exhibition at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux falls South Dakota concludes this weekend.

Curators Note:

Frank and Jan Gibbs began actively collecting works of art almost fifty years ago, with a focus on western illustration. Frank had a keen sense for American History, often referencing his personal library in preparing papers for presentations he would give at the Center for Western Studies. In their time of collecting Frank and Jan formed close ties with the artists and the galleries that they purchased from- friendships that still last today. Much of this collection will be available for purchase. Several of the works have, at this date, been sold. It is a wonderful oppurtunity to see artworks of this caliber in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Several works where aquired from Walt Reed's Illustration House Gallery, New York- New York.

“They might be from San Francisco, but they’re really South Dakotans,” said Gifford, 53, who was born and raised here along with her three siblings. Gifford now lives in Ohio, and the other three have moved as well.
After Frank began his own law practice, the couple became acquainted with the art community and hit on the idea of opening a gallery when they retired. They started going to art shows around the region. “Western art was so different than anything we ever had ever seen. Since were were going to be in the west, we decided to collect it,” Gibbs explained.
The collection represents decades of western art collected with a personal touch, Thompson said. “Frank and Jan have been longtime residents and were deeply involved with the youth here. He knew many of the artists. They played a role in the cultural life of Sioux Falls.”
