Mark Dahle is opening a 10,000 square foot art gallery in Red Cloud, Nebraska. The Grand Opening is scheduled for Friday, November 4, from 7 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, November 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
You can visit the gallery while renovations are underway. (If you come now, you'll see different art from what will be on display November 4.)
The gallery is quite a ways from any major airport, so be sure to bring snacks for the road trip.
Mark Dahle paintings can be found in private collections from Florida to Alaska.
Photographs are often printed without restraint. Mark Dahle photographs are different.
Each Mark Dahle photograph is printed in an edition of one, meaning that each is a unique work of art.
In 2022, Mark expanded this policy to include all his photographic works. This means there will only be one Fine Art Edition available of each Mark Dahle Portfolio.
Mark Dahle Portfolios feature the image of a colorful painting, 20 or more beautiful photographs, and an engaging story or commentary.
Thought-provoking and beautiful, Mark Dahle Portfolios can be read in a few minutes and then enjoyed for a lifetime.
The mass market editions of the portfolios are individually dated, giving collectors bragging rights and something to show people who acquire their copies later.
A single Fine Art Edition will be created of each portfolio.

Questions Every Art Collector Needs To Ask Before Investing In Art
A few questions will help art investors avoid traps that have caused other collectors and art institutions to lose their investments (and their art!). Some of these are traps that you may not hear about from your art dealer.
Mark Dahle says, “When I visited China a couple years ago, I saw mops everywhere. I started taking pictures of them; I thought I might do a series. But I wasn’t in China long enough, so I decided instead to create a thousand artworks based on one mop.”
The artworks in this series invite conversations about what makes things seem related and what makes them different, what constitutes "family" and "individual."
Mark Dahle's Endangered Photos are one-of-a-kind works of art. Subjects of the Endangered Photos currently include telephone poles, train cars, hay bales, and railroad ties.
It's too early to predict how or when the five Mark Dahle Art Museums will be built.
Perhaps they will only exist as conceptual artwork, a collection of sketches, paintings and the like.
Or perhaps they will be developed as a Virtual Reality experience that anyone with an internet connection can visit.
Or, perhaps, they will exist in a physical location with heat and air conditioning and working toilets and a gigantic staff and lots of other items Mark may not be that great about coordinating.
You can check out their progress on our Mark Dahle Art Museums page.
