Each time I visit a new place I look for those things that are original to the area. Sometimes it’s the scenery, sometimes an attraction, or a locally owned restaurant. When friends and family visit me I have no problem finding these things in my town to show them. There’s no shortage of uniquely Spearfish places to visit. Some of the best escapes from the everyday can be had at local galleries, including the world famous Dick Termes and his Termesphere Gallery.
Termes paints on giant spheres in six-point perspective. Once complete, a termesphere is a rotating three-dimensional work of art – each a world of its own. Termes has created more than 400 termespheres and 30 to 100 of them can be viewed, at any given time, at the Termesphere Gallery.
The Gallery itself is a work of art—a giant dome that asks to be explored. Inside you walk among these floating globes. You can spend as long as you want simply admiring the worlds Termes has created or you can purchase your own termesphere. Either way, you should at least take the time to view this great Spearfish attraction.
