Visitors will find that Jim’s many explorations of global issues and landscapes begin and end at the gallery, situated on the brick Main Street of Lindsborg, a culturally rich town of 3,500 in central Kansas. On display are Jim’s large-scale prints of recent work, as well as posters and greeting cards from favorite subjects and locations. All are made in the gallery.For Small World Gallery and beyond, use our Lindsborg trip itinerary planning site to get the most from your Lindsborg vacation.
Jim Richardson said, “I feel lucky to have a base for my travels in a small town with big creative energy,” said Richardson, who has been photographing for the magazine since 1984. He also represents National Geographic in workshops, on cruises, and in keynote lectures, media appearances and social media.
Also in the gallery Kathy Richardson offers a browsable collection of antique, vintage and contemporary glass, stone and metals that are used in designing her jewelry line called IBISwoman. Guests may select from earrings, bracelets and necklaces from the gallery display tables — or they may wish to collaborate with Kathy or IBISwoman co-designer Briana Zimmerling on a made-to-order piece. Sometimes these may be completed in the moment.
Kathy Richardson said, “We also love to help our guests discover other great Lindsborg shops, galleries and attractions, as well as our favorite places across Kansas.”

Now this is the place to go if you're looking for a gift for a very special person. It has delightful jewelry, books, drawings, paintings, wearable items, Flags, and other assorted goodies to Feast Your Eyes Upon the craftsmanship found there. One of the most unique things that I found where all the different cameras located and displayed on the railing above your head. There was even a necklace that was made to look like a camera and opened and everything unique to the artist that made it. Want something that the receiver will always remember you and feel very much appreciated, go here and you will certainly find it!
You will not find a more genuine mom and pop’ business that cares for it’s customers. Stop in and experience unique gifts and warm Lindsborg hospitality. And don’t forget to look at photos Jim has taken from around the world!!
Beautiful artwork. We bought a print, which Jim signed, and two pieces of jewelry, one for me and one a gift. Kathy beautifully wrapped the gift. Great conversation with the artists! Definitely a must-stop in Lindsborg.
Beautiful place with lots of handmade items by local artists. Saw demonstrations of painting and whittling and received a free item. Great experience
Stopped in Friday evening to celebrate a birthday for a family friend. Shop has original and print art, jewelry, books for children and adults and more. Will have to make it back to browse a little longer.
