Shaviq Studio and Gallery
Featuring over 60 South Dakota Artists
Local art makes the best gifts.
Shaviq Studio & Gallery was born from the vision of two women in 2010, who started their art co-op in a little space downtown Rapid City with only a handful of artists. When they moved into the current location, Shaviq was known as a great place to buy local art as well as antiques and vintage clothing. Most of the antiques and clothing are gone now and Shaviq features over 75 amazing artists, most of whom live in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Shaviq carries art from local emerging artists. You'll find everything from handmade jewelry to oil paintings in the store. You can buy a unique one of a kind gift any time of the year or you can develop your own creativity and skills by attending any of our wide variety of classes. Stop in today and find out what is on offer this week.
Are you an emerging artist looking for a venue? Shaviq might be the place for you! We accept new artists periodically based on available space
and the artist’s ability to participate in the co-op.
*How do I become an artist at Shaviq?
1. Come to the gallery and look around, get a feel for what’s selling at Shaviq. Please do not bring sample items to the gallery unless you’re invited to do so.
2. Send an email to the owner. Tell us a little bit about yourself as an emerging artist. Include 3-5 good photos of current work and availability of what you’re proposing to sell. If you have a website or a Facebook page with more art, please include that information as well.
3. From this information your photos will be juried by several current selling artists at Shaviq. This takes a while so be patient! The owner will contact you to either decline your submission, or to set up a time to meet with her. At this meeting she will look at your samples and to discuss the contract.
