Pembina State Museum is hosting the temporary exhibit, “Art of Einar Olstad,” through 2017. Inspired by the people, scenery, and ranch life of the Dakota Badlands, rancher and artist Einar Olstad (1878-1955) captured the essence of the American West in his portrayals of the Dakota cowboy. In addition to a wide selection of his paintings, objects relating to ranching life in the 1930s are on display. Nearby, Gingras Trading Post State Historic Site will be open by appointment only. To schedule a visit, call 701.825.6840. Gingras Trading Post preserves the 1840s home and trading post of Métis legislator and businessman Antoine Blanc Gingras, northeast of Walhalla, Pembina County. Gingras's hand-hewn oak buildings are among the few tangible remains of the fur trade in the Red River Valley.
