What a treat! Some of the talented artists in the Pro Health Western Art Show have created something extra special this year as a way to give back!

Participating artists have "upcycled" a chair of their choosing and created a one-of-a-kind piece of art! All pieces will be sold through a silent auction. Check back early and often to see if your bid holds up!

The CHAIR-ITY auction proceeds will benefit our youth livestock participants through scholarships and the Rainbow Bible Ranch (a youth camp in Meade County, SD where kids can enjoy riding horses, herding cattle and learning about a working cattle ranch).

Auction winners are responsible for picking up their chairs at the close of the show on February 5. BHSS will not ship any chairs.

A long time ago
I was a tree
The black hills was home
For my friends and me

A nice man sat below me and
took a nap
He could have chosen those
other saps
With glee he chose me!

He planed and he sanded and created with care
A special little chair
for his special lair

I have been there for laughter
I've been there for tears
Endured the Crayola's
Then forgotten for years

Stuffed in a dark corner I
thought I was doomed
thoughts of becoming
firewood was beginning to

Salvation one day in the form
of a lady
She thought I was perfect
Though not in my hey day

She thinks I'm a treasure
that will bring so muhc
She fiddled and drew
And began to measure
She got out some paint
And painted some feathers

Once again, I feel special
I don't want to roam
Just a place for the little ones
If you will just give me a home!

This child's rocking chair was created by a company in Mitchell, SD that made furniture for the Ducks Unlimited banquets. In the past I created artwork for them to use on their furniture. They gave me this chair for our kids. Since then our kids and grandkids used this chair and now it is time for it to go to another child. The rabbit and bear were originally stamped into the wood, so I gave them detail by painting them and also added the butterfly painting down below.
