BISMARCK – Nearly 20 artists are represented in The Capital Gallery’s newest exhibition, “Into the West,” featuring an array of western Americana paintings and bronzes. Among them is Minot’s Walter Piehl, with seven new canvases on display.

“Since opening four years ago, Walter has been our number one selling artist,” said David Borlaug, gallery president. “With over 60 pieces sold, his expressive rodeo-inspired works are gracing homes all across the country.”

Borlaug also said this is the largest number of Piehl’s works to be shown in a few years.

Another regional artist featured is Kalenze Kraft, Berthold, who also has several pieces on display in The Capital Gallery West, in Medora.

Two new artists are introduced in the downtown Bismarck gallery, longtime Dickinson art educator and painter Cherie Roshau; and Almont bronze artist James McCulloch.

– Kaye Burian, Manning

“We’ve never featured so many artists in one exhibition, although all are perfect fits with our western theme,” said gallery vice president Marci Narum. “From paintings to bronzes, these talented artists offer a fascinating view of the American West.”
