Small World Gallery
A gallery. On Main Street. Small town. With roots around the world. Joy in connecting. Exploring, from here to there. In our lives -- and yours. "Delightful." We make our stuff. We write notes. We read books to children. Real People. Brick and Mortar.
One. Of. A. Kind.

Makers Street upcoming event Pet-tember has me remembering the single luckiest picture I ever took — and it involved pets.
The Great Plains story for National Geographic was taxing my abilities. Lots of territory and a nebulous idea of what the essence of this prairie geography was all about. I’d driven thousands of miles from Texas to Montana (enjoying every mile, actually) when I found myself on an a very traditional farm (they still used horses for plowing) outside Medina, North Dakota.
One of the first things you see when walking into Small World Gallery is the colorful rack of greeting cards featuring my photographs from around the world. It’s been a fixture in Small World since the beginning in 2002. And it is something else in the world of National Geographic photographers: rare!
Time and again I watch as people browse the collection, some drawn to the Flint Hills and Kansas cards, some to exotic locations like the Arctic or the Pyramids, some burrowing into my Scotland collection, and some just finding a personal connection — cats, windmills, sunsets, long roads.
