Prairie House Gallery started in a farm house in rural Towner County, North Dakota just outside Hansboro, population 6. (It has since risen to 16).
We retain our love of North Dakota and the friends we made there, and will feature North Dakota Artists (With a smattering of South Dakota and Manitoba artists) and their work on this dedicated page.
The logo of our gallery is based on the prairie rose, the state flower of North Dakota.
Circa24, artist and author of Silent Consent, spent time with us in Towner county and developed the seeds of her manuscript there.
