Birchtree Gallery & Framing/ Northern Lights Stained Glass
Birchtree Gallery & Framing and Northern Lights Stained Glass Studio is the studio and home of unique works of art by Al & Cheryl Wentzell (owners) and other artists in Watertown, South Dakota.
The Gallery represents Al’s paintings and artworks, along with the stained glass and other creations of both himself and his wife Cheryl, and features other local South Dakota Artists, including works of Stained Glass, Fused Glass, Paintings, Pottery, Jewelry, and Photography. Al & Cheryl’s son (Chris) moved to Watertown in November 2011 and joined the Gallery specializing in Lapidary, Gems, Minerals, and Crystals, as well as assisting in Stained Glassworks. In 2015 William Pinna became a permanent addition to the Gallery and has had his art featured here since 2006
The shop also has specialty items for weddings, anniversaries, and gifts for all occasions incorporated. We also teach Art Classes including plein-air, Stained Glass Classes, art glass, jewelry making, and mosaic art. The Gallery teaches Stained Glass classes for Mt. Marty College, usually twice a year, and holds open houses and receptions for artists during the year.
