LINDSBORG — Dawn and Brandon Sherwood have spent nearly 30 years preparing for this moment.

Soon, the pair will open Hands of Time Gallery in Lindsborg at 118 S. Main St.

“Hands of Time Gallery is a culmination of our hearts and a celebration of creativity. It has been a dream that we have been sitting on for the past 27 years of our marriage and we are overjoyed to be able to share it with you,” Dawn Sherwood said. “We have always told our children ‘follow your dreams.’ Now we are actually following our own advice. Brandon and I have always wanted to open a gallery/boutique.  After years of prayer and preparation, we are taking the leap of faith and are in the process of opening Hands of Time Gallery.”

Not only do the Sherwoods love finding new art, they also enjoy creating it themselves.

“I was a graduate of Kansas State University in art education, and I shared my skills with children through the years as an art educator. Brandon, is a celebrated artist, he designs and carves whimsical furnishings, home accessories, and sculptures,” Dawn Sherwood said. “He is also an amazing residential home contractor and builder; building artful homes with a heartbeat that can only be created when you pair a talented artist with a master home builder.”

The gallery will be located at 118 S. Main St. in Lindsborg. The historic space was most recently occupied by Chestnut Studios, and previously by G.M. Malm’s stenciling business in the 1920s, but the Sherwoods were influenced by another Lindsborg artist as well.

“Lindsborg seemed to be the only appropriate location for the gallery, given the mentorship that Lester Raymer offered to Brandon when he first started carving,” Dawn Sherwood explained. “It is coming full circle, back to where Brandon's heart first became captivated with art.”

Hands of Time Gallery will feature art ranging from two-dimensional art, ceramics, sculptures, jewelry, furniture, accessories, and gift items

“The gallery/boutique celebrates the art of artists living in all corners of the world, with offerings from Kansas, across the country and internationally from places such as Ireland, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Scotland to name a few,” Dawn Sherwood said.

Hands of Time Gallery is set to open in April.
