the Talley Gallery. “It’s a nice resource because we don’t have a museum that is close by here, people have to go down to the cities or you would have to go out to North Dakota.”

The Talley Gallery serves as a learning tool for students in the Art and Design programs here at BSU. Students can go and take information and techniques being used by these artists and implement them into their classes.

Students and community members are also welcome to stop in and look at the artwork on display.  The gallery located in room 140 is open Mon. through Fri. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

“Here in this area we have gotten some of the finest artists to come and show their work at BSU,” said Goliasewski. “It’s a good resource just to see the world through somebody else’s eyes.”
