A Joint Exhibition by Jessica Wachter & Kent Burkhardsmeier
Story by Jessica Wachter
Photography by Claudia Johnstone, dasFOTOhaus
Kent Burkhardsmeier and I met about three years ago through mutual friends. He is originally from my hometown of Bismarck, and is an amazing photographer. Kent and I hit it off right away, discussing our passion for art. We stayed connected and both stay intrigued by each other's art. There was definitely something about the energy of the work that he did that I found both beautiful and compelling. Eventually, our creative outlets went full circle, working together to fuse his landscape photography with my abstract painting. This month, we cordially invite you to tour our joint exhibition, "connected." at The Capital Gallery in Bismarck.
[ Pickles the Dog, by Kat Socks ]

When Katherine Pendergast was growing up in Bismarck, N.D., she never dreamed she would one day be an author better known as Kat Socks. When her first book, Pickles the Dog, landed in the top one percent of children's books on Amazon, it seemed Pickles' story had sparked magic. Just in time for the holidays, we got the chance to interview Socks, who has recently released her second book in the series, Pickles the Dog, A Christmas Tradition. This is the real-life tale of how Kat Socks befriended an abandoned dog who would quickly become the inspiration for an award-winning children's book series.
