America's Trusted Source of Authentic, Original
Plains Indian Art
Prairie Star Gallery ...
Located in the
heart of downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Prairie
Star Gallery may be the country's best-kept secret.
Our customers are so possessive of their "find" that
they'll tell only their closest friends about our
gallery. Our brochure claims we may be the
smallest gallery you ever got lost in, and that
pretty well sums it up. Located in the heart
of Lakota and Dakota country, we are fortunate to
offer the finest Indigenous art in the region, if
not the U.S. We purchase directly from about
300 artists, so you can be assured of the quality
and authenticity of the art. Except for the
books and CDs, of course, the art is handmade.
In those few instances where the artist is
non-Native, we so indicate on the work.
Our gallery is both
uniquely beautiful and comfortably familiar.
We're located in a 110-year-old building with maple
floors, brick walls, and exposed rafters. Soft
sounds of Indigenous flute music sooth the listener.
The staff are very knowledgeable about the cultures
and the artists. Linda, the co-owner and
manager, is a fountain of knowledge, yet she learns
more about the Northern Plains Indigenous art and
culture every day. We're often visited by our
artists, who provide much of that knowledge, so
every day is an adventure.
not staffed to sell our art over the Internet.
The pieces on this page illustrate the variety,
beauty, and quality of our work. So much of
our art is one-of-a-kind that it would be difficult
to produce a catalog or CD without it always being
out of date. Until we are able to offer
Internet sales, we ask that you call and inquire
about categories of art you're interested in
purchasing. Better yet, just stop by!
