Exhibit Notes

The Apex Gallery is pleased to announce "American Nocturne," an exhibition by Spearfish artist Tim Peterson. The exhibit opens Monday, November 2 and runs through December 4.

A closing reception will be held in the gallery on Friday evening, December 4, from 5 to 7 pm with an Artist Talk at 6 pm.

The focus of Peterson’s work is to depict “random, small dramas that we experience in the routine course of our daily lives.” American Nocturne focuses on those moments after dark, after the sun goes down. The scenes depicted are from both a random chance viewing of an intriguing scene as well as a concentrated effort to seek out interesting scenes and compositions. The 15 pastels on display at the Apex Gallery share a similar, dark palette with an accompanying air of mystery, inherent to the night.

Peterson is originally from Minot, North Dakota, but attended Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD where he received his Bachelor’s degree. Peterson lives and works in Spearfish, South Dakota.
