Peggy Lindbloom, deputy auditor, spins her wool into thread as a crowd watches. Lindbloom makes rugs, socks and sweaters with the fabric, which she herself harvests from her sheep. Lindbloom also enjoys making a wide variety of things, such as food items, buildings and other craft projects because she enjoys problem solving and being at peace.

 

Even though Custer County planning director David Green enjoys taking pictures, he doesn’t consider himself an artist.
“I like taking spontaneous pictures of people and scenery,” he said. “I always carry my little Sony digital camera with me because you never know when you’ll come across a unique or captivating scene.”
The three photographs on display at the gallery represent moments where Green has caught himself saying “wow” as he happened upon the scene.
“They represent sceneries that were evolving at that moment in time,” he said.
The photograph of Sylvan Lake was taken in the spring when the ice was melting off of the lake, the photograph of frost covered pine trees was taken in the early morning on Green’s property before it dissipated from the sun and the cloud formation photograph forever captures an image before the configuration changed with a coming breeze.
“Beyond each captured image, each photograph reminds me of where I was and what I was doing at that moment,” Green said. 
The image of Sylvan Lake reminds Green of his daughter, since they were walking around the lake that day. The frosty pine tree reminds him of checking the mail, since he was walking to the mailbox when he noticed the scenery. The cloud formation reminds him of driving an old truck he has since parted ways with.
“I looked up, noticed the sky, pulled the truck over and rolled down the window — with a crank handle — and snapped the picture,” he said.
Green also made the frames the photographs are housed in our of reclaimed lumber from an old building on his property.
