Nebraska Art Gallery

Mark Dahle is opening a 10,000 square foot art gallery in Red Cloud, Nebraska.

If you're in town on Thursday or Saturday, you might want to check out the Red Cloud Film Club.

The gallery is quite a ways from any major airport, so if you come, be sure to bring snacks for the road trip.

Photographs are often printed without restraint. Mark Dahle photographs are not.

Each of Mark Dahle's photographs are printed in an edition of one. That means that each is unique. Mark won't print other copies if a particular image is popular.

Mark often works in a series, often of things that appear to be alike. Telephone poles, hay bales, and corn stalks are some examples. But each photograph printed by Mark Dahle is a unique work, released in an edition of one.

Similarly, photographic artworks created by Mark Dahle are each unique. As an example, each of the artworks in the series of 1000 Mops is unique, even though the central image of the series - a mop from China - is the same.

Mark Dahle Portfolios feature 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 edition of the portfolios are individually dated, giving collectors bragging rights and something to show people who acquire their copies later.

The Collector's Edition of each portfolio is a unique work, 13 x 19 inches, printed in an edition of one.

1,000 Mops

1000 Mops #101, copyright Mark Dahle 2014

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."

Mops are available as individual mops, as an unbroken series of 10 Mops and as an unbroken series of 99 Mops.

Mark Dahle Art Museums

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.
