Deb Klebanoff is the founder and president of The Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge, a space designed for people of all ages to discover and nurture their own inner creativity, to explore nature, and to focus on sustainable living. Since the late 90’s, she has been focused on developing opportunities for enhanced creative cultural development in the region. She has served on the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce’s Cultural Affairs committee, including a term as its chair and served for almost a decade with the Sioux Empire Arts Council, including 8 years as its Executive Director.
The Retreat sits along the Big Sioux River in rural Southeast South Dakota, 10 miles north of the state’s largest city, Sioux Falls. It is being developed to serve as an incubator for creative discovery; a space to build upon the knowledge, history and culture of this region through the work of creatives; growers who provide physical nourishment and beauty through cultivation of the land; and environmentalists dedicated to protection of natural resources and green space.
Deb will speak at 10:00 with coffee served at 9:30. This is free and open to the public; Art Guild membership not required.
