David Uhl’s 70th Sturgis Rally Commemorative Painting

You all know that this year is the 70th edition of the Black Hills Rally commonly called Sturgis Bike Week. In 1936, Clarence “Pappy” Hoel started an Indian dealership in Sturgis and formed the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club.

Two years later, the City of Sturgis joined forces with the Jackpine Gypsies to hold the first “rally” (known as the Black Hills Classic) which was highlighted by the championship half-mile race.  David’s subject in “70 & Counting”, is a member of a motorcycle club at the time, on her way to the inaugural festivities when she stops near Devil’s Tower to get her bearings.  We can only imagine that her new cowboy friend wishes she would stay longer!  

Since 2005, David has produced each year a special piece for the rally, each of them open through the last day of the rally, time at which time the edition is always closed. With the excitement surrounding the 70th anniversary, David is capping the number of available prints of  “70 & Counting”  and using a special paper version. These prints are sold signed,  numbered and unframed. Shipping is included in the following prices: “Regular Canvas”, image size 28″ x 21″, edition of 70 plus 7 APs and 7 HCs,  $895 framed. “Oversize Canvas”, image size 40″ x 30″, edition of 12 plus 2 APs, $2,250 framed. “Deluxe Paper”, image size 18″ x 13.5″, edition of 70, $195 unframed (only available unframed.)

    Once again David comes up with a beautiful piece! I love his work and the fact that he uses women riders is very cool… Better make room on my wall for this one!
