Art Forms Gallery

Posted: Updated:

HILL CITY, S.D. - The Art Forms Gallery in Hill City is a hidden gem, showcasing local creations for the past 19 years. 

Art Forms is a home for all types of original artwork. It's a nonprofit, artist co-op, featuring the work of 21 Black Hills artists. The concept began when local designers were looking for an outlet for their creations.

Joe Reinart, president of Art Forms, explained how the concept came to life.

"Your relatives and friends get tired of getting all the artwork from you, so you need to have an outlet for it," he said. "We have student artists every once in a while ... We have some artists that work through the summer out on the patio, and it's pretty cool."

Walking through the store, you'll find mediums of all kinds: re-purposed works, photography, clay, paintings, glass, silverware, wood, fabric, bronze sculptures, etc. The pieces range in price from $3 to $300. 

Reinart says some customers come back every year to see what's new.  A former art teacher himself, Reinart utilizes antlers, stones, wood turning, and ceramics to complete his works of art.

Art Forms is located in downtown Hill City in the Old World Plaza.
