Visual Arts

See the world through the eyes of Black Hills artists

Step off Main Street in Spearfish into our Fine Arts Gallery. Around each corner (and even from the ceiling!) you will find bold, innovative, and diverse art pieces in every medium. All artwork in the gallery is created by Black Hills artists.

A passageway to the historic Matthews Opera House, the Gallery space transforms for art openings and community art projects. Events like the Community Art Show and partnerships with the Black Hills State University students and faculty demonstrate that the arts are for everyone, and everyone is an artist. 

“I’m always amazed at the talent that can be found in the Black Hills area.
I know I can always go to The Matthews to discover new works of art”
