Enjoy a rare showing of South Dakota artist Dorothy Morgan’s paintings in her home state. To anyone who’s driven through rural southeastern South Dakota, Morgan’s paintings feel instantly familiar. In thick, satisfying paint, she captures the expanse of the sky, the shine on creeks and ditch puddles, and the texture of sparse trees and snow-covered fields.
