The Capital Gallery West is Open!

The Capital Gallery West, presented by Starion Bank, is open in the Harold Schafer Heritage Center on 4th Street in downtown Medora.

A partnership between The Capital Gallery, Bismarck, and the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, the gallery returns for its second summer season in historic Medora, with remodeled space, featuring outstanding Western Americana artists.

Open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. seven days a week, the gallery offers a gift shop with unique selections, in addition to the fine art on display.

Visitors to the Harold Schafer Heritage Center will find a museum devoted to the story of North Dakota’s most famous entrepreneur,  who founded The Gold Seal Company in 1942 and became a beloved proponent of Medora and North Dakota. “Mr. Bubble,” a feature film on Harold and Sheila Schafer, is shown daily in the Center, and was produced by The Capital Gallery’s nonprofit foundation.
