The Rapid City Arts Council is pleased to bring you Le Tour d’Art, opening on June 16 and on display until October 14, 2017. A reception will be held on Friday, June 16 from 5-7pm.

Gregg Rochester, a large-scale landscape oil painter, has combined his love of cycling and his background as a painter. In his latest exhibit, Le Tour d’Art, he elaborately paints bicycles with themes such as African textiles, reptile skin, maps, ancient beads, marbles, outer space and the Northern lights. Each bicycle is unique, often painted differently on each side. In addition to painted bicycles, the show includes cycling-inspired oil on canvas paintings. This exhibit is generously sponsored by South Dakota Arts Council and Rapid City Arts Council.
