Turn Back Time -
Simple on the outside, spectacular on the inside!
Prairie Star Gallery is filled with centuries-old
art forms displayed in a beautiful century-old
building. It's located in the heart of downtown
Sioux Falls, on Phillips Ave. It's a gorgeous place,
with one-of-a-kind original art displayed in a
relaxing ambiance. You'll agree with the 10,000
customers who preceded you -- the gallery and its
art are fabulous!
The exceptional variety and originality of our art
distinguishes Prairie Star Gallery from others.
Nearly all art is from the U.S.; a small percentage
is created by Canadian Iroquois. It is Indigenous
handmade, authentic, and high quality. The artists
we represent are predominately from Northern Plains
tribes, such as Lakota, Dakota, Ojibwa (Chippewa,
Anishinaabe), Blackfeet, Assiniboine, Three
Affiliated Tribes of Ft. Berthold, and many others.
We also represent Navajo, Santo Domingo, and
No matter the artists' tribe or band, you'll find
our art is incomparable. We've been told by people
who have visited galleries all over the U.S. that
ours is the finest gallery of Indigenous art,
supported by the most-knowledgeable and helpful
Preserve the Past - "The past is never
dead. It's not even past." - Faulkner
Stop in, and put the world on pause. Experience a
time inconceivable by today's standards: 125 years
ago the telephone had just been invented;
automobiles still were on the horizon; and,
television and cell phones weren't even science
fiction. Hard to believe? Not for our artists.
Our art originates from a time long before the
railroad and telegraph, when everything was
handcrafted and everyone was an artisan to some
extent. If you are someone who realizes those days
are gone, and that art such as ours is rare and
becoming even more so, you owe it to yourself to
visit us and appreciate truly remarkable art.
Promote Timeless Art - We work hard to
purchase and promote only the highest-quality
Indigenous art from artists we know. Ultimately
only you can enable our artists to continue the
traditions of their ancestors, through purchase of
their art. We and they truly appreciate your
patronage and 14 years of continuous support of
their artistic creations.
You who support the gallery have come from all 50
states and over 50 countries. Our success depends
on our artists' talent and originality, and your
trust and confidence. A major factor in your
loyalty may be the consistent quality of our unique
and authentic art. Another may be the information
we provide about the artists, their art, and the
cultures they are a part of. Whatever the reasons,
we truly have enjoyed serving your artistic
interests since 1997.

Prairie Star Gallery is a member of the 3/50 Project
, a grass-roots effort with a mission to save the
brick-and-mortar stores our nation's consumers
depend on. The concept is to encourage as many folks
as possible to invest $50 a month in any combination
of 1, 2, or 3 store-front stores in their hometown
or in the town they happen to be visiting.
Why is this important? Because unlike some large
businesses, most local stores don't receive
subsidies from any governmental body - be it local,
state, or federal. It's only through your purchase
of our goods that we recycle those $$ to pay our
staff modest salaries, pay the landlord, the web
host, the utility companies, the airport case, the
... well, you understand. We run our store the same
way proprietors ran the general stores, barber
shops, and millinery stores here in Sioux Falls and
across this great nation 100 years ago. Without
customers like yourself, they and we cannot survive.
