Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby

Sculptors Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby formed the art studio Bad River Artworks after cooperating on several sculpture projects while attending Northern State University in the late 80s. Their “continuous critique” approach to sculpture delivers high realism to their “Americana” sculptures. Besides their national market, they have placed over 250 public, life-sized sculptures, making them one of South Dakota’s most prolific bronze sculptors.
