Most hunters said they saw very few deer this Year if any. Lot of hunters attribute it to what they call a perfect storm scenerio -- harsh winters of the past couple of years, coyotes killing the fawns and weakened does, and just too many doe tags given out by the DNR. Whatever the reason, there doesn't seem to be the numbers of deer as in past years. i 1 .'It \,,,,~aunt~t:,e,,dl t,o, ,crea,ce a 1p, ltace ]p,e,o, lp, lte c'aunt ,utaaklpU,:,e.,1~ caltlt t]heihr ,o,v / By Allison Olimb of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The lights of one shop on main street Park River have been on for months with construction slowly happening be- hind the front window. Updates to the interior from the floor to the walls slowly has turned a century-old building, which was once the Walsh County Press office and then a used bookstore, into a showcase for local artists. Owner Jason Lindelt, the artist behind Sun- dog Glass, describes the space as a gallery gift shop where he can display and sell a variety of local artists' work, including his own. "The best way to support art is to buy art," he said adding that this gallery will offer people the chance to invest in artists as well as the local economy. Lindell uses the gallery to showcase a range of what art is and what it can be. Stepping into the gallery, the walls are adorned with metal sculptures by Karman Rheault, which are three-dimensional scenes ranging from nature landscape to abstract. Lin- dell's glass pieces fused together to resemble flowers add a pop of color to the display. And Adam Kemp uses his perspective to offer paint- . .,(, i ings that are both unique and a more traditional , sense of what people consider to be "art." ! Lindell's additional pieces show that art can be functional as well as beautiful bowls, Above: There was steady traffic of customers into Jason Lindelrs newly opened art gallery on main wine Rheault's other pieces currently on display in- clude hand-crafted jewelry. Lindell encourages shoppers to look around and if they see something they like, purchase it, because it may not be there the next time they stop in. He said he would constantly be chang- ing out pieces and artists to make the gallery an ever-changing display. "Keeping it fresh, keeping it accessible is the big challenge," he said. "I'm constantly .looking for new artists." Just last week he added wall hangings, mit- tens, and accessories from the Wooly Girls of Wales, N.D., and said he soon would be getting lampwork glass items from John Bartunek of Grafton and ceramic pieces from another area artist. "I want to create a place people can uniquely call their own," Lindell said. "It isn't about me, it's about our community." Lindell said that when the location became available he couldn't pass up the chance to get on main street. "It was a great opportunity," he said. He purchased the building about a year ago ! and has been doing renovations on the shop to ! be able to bring art to main street ever since. He opened his doors on Dec. 3 and said that traffic has been steady with people buying Christmas Con , page 3 bottle holders, bracelets, coasters. Some of street in Park River on Dec. 3.
