The Ruddell Gallery on the Black Hills State University campus is currently showcasing the work of BHSU alumni and internationally-known artist Dick Termes and a collection of his Termespheres.

The exhibit, which showcases Termes' spherical artwork, is on display in the Ruddell Gallery until Nov. 21. A special artist's reception for Termes will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6 in the gallery. The Ruddell Gallery is located on the second floor of the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union on the BHSU campus. The show is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served, compliments of the BHSU Alumni Association.

Termes is known for painting scenes onto spheres, which have been coined Termspheres. The spheres are a revolving space and time exploration, capturing every angle of the image Termes created.

Termes built the Termesphere Gallery in Spearfish in 1997, where his work is displayed. Termes was inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame in September and is recognized as one of the top 125 Accomplished Alumni at BHSU.

Termes is a 1964 BHSU graduate. He taught high school for several years before earning his master's degree. He then taught art at BHSU in the 1970s.
