On the Prairie: The Art of Eugene Christopherson - Sioux Falls

May 7, 2018 - Oct 12, 2018

When Laura Ingalls Wilder recorded her experiences living in "The Little House on the Prairie," she could not have known the exceptionally broad reach her tales would achieve. Adapted from Wilder’s book series in 1974, the acclaimed NBC television show "Little House on the Prairie" brought this enduring story into homes nationwide. In 1982, to honor the beloved television series, the East Palestine China Company commissioned South Dakota artist Eugene Christopherson to create 12 paintings for a collector's plate series. In March of 2017, the 12 original oil paintings Christopherson created for this series became part of the Center's Fine Art Collection. This series, together with several other prairie-inspired Christopherson paintings, will be on display in the gallery exhibition, “On the Prairie: The Art of Eugene Christopherson,” which opens May 7 and runs through October 12, 2018.

A reception will be held June 8, 2018 from 6:30- 8:30pm.
The show is free and open to the public.
