Sometimes people need a trail guide—or a trail blazer. For more than 20 years, Jon Crane Gallery & Custom Framing has served as a portal into the Black Hills, and we are proud to host the best "guides" around. Jon leads a pack of artistic visionaries whose work is showcased in the gallery. We begin with his renowned watercolors—depicting rural America and farmhouse scenes—and add a variety of sculpture, hand-built furniture, pottery, baskets, and wall art, making the gallery the place to start your artistic trek.
The sculpture comes from Peggy Detmers, and we are proud to be her feature gallery in South Dakota. Best known for Deadwood's Tatanka, one of the world's largest bronze installations by one artist, Peggy is a Central Hills maverick. She sculpts live in the gallery, and welcomes your questions.
Other artists shown in the Gallery include: JK Dooley—Watercolors and Pen & Ink; Jeanne Beroza—Pine Needle Baskets; Joel Bielstein—Large Format Photography; Todd Grabow—Fine Wood Furniture; Barb Hallberg—Pottery; Greg Radley—Masterpieces in Wood; and Dorothy Snowden—Oil & Pastels.
And don't forget our Custom Picture Frameshop, uniquely sought by our clients. Our specialty is to create designs that enhance and complement images without overwhelming or distracting from the artwork. The owner and lead framer, Lori Nonnast, has over 26 years of experience in the design and framing industry. But she does more than that. With handmade Edison light fixtures, interior design, and other unexpected bits of décor, Lori can inspire your every whim—whether you're into rustic barnwood or ornate sophistication.
