Dakota Life : The Arts

Posted by SDPB on

Dakota Life focuses on art in February, with a look at a pair of national award-winning wildlife artists from rural Union County, the latest on internationally famed Termesphere artist Dick Termes of Spearfish, and a Sturgis man who uses his artistic talent to make firearms unique.

The February episode premieres on Thursday, Feb. 5, at 8pm (7 MT), with an encore on Sunday, Feb. 8, at 1pm (Noon MT).

Dakota Life is a monthly half-hour program that looks at the fascinating people, places and things that make up our great state. Here are some of the highlights for February:

Art of the Family – Adam Grimm and his daughter Madison Grimm are both award-winning artists. Last year, Madison won the Jr. Duck Stamp Contest and is the youngest artist to ever win. Adam has won the Federal Duck Stamp contest twice. He is the only artist to win the contest twice and was the youngest adult winner.

The Art of Firearms – Jesse Kaufman of Sturgis makes weapons unique. He creates one-of-a-kind firearms and knives by checkering and engraving the weapons.

Art in Dimensions – Dick Termes uses “Termespheres” to create three-dimensional art. Over a career that has spanned half a century, he has gained an international following. The Black Hills artist was inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame last year.

Dakota Life airs several times throughout the month to give viewers a chance to tune in. Past episodes are available at SDPB.org/DakotaLife. The program airs statewide on SDPB and nationwide on RFD-TV.
