Termespheres Fill the Gallery
February 13 to March 8
Unlike any other painterTermes paints on spheres which, when completed, are known as Termespheres. Each Termesphere is a revolving three-dimensional space/time exploration of an entirely closed universe, meaning that what you see, rotating in front of you, is one complete world or environment.
South Dakota is home to some pretty amazing art and some very talented artists. Dick Termes is one of those very talented artists. In addition to his pieces on display in the Termesphere Gallery, Dick Termes' work can be found in many locations including in the state's capital, Pierre, South Dakota.
Termes’s work has been recognized and exhibited internationally. His piece “The Big Bang” was featured on the cover of the French edition of A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking.
Seeing a picture of a "Termesphere" is not at all the same as standing among dozens of suspended spheres rotated by small motors. Books, drawings, and articles on display at the gallery lend to the explanation of what a Termesphere is.
