- May 24 | Guild Program | Gerald Cournoyer | Artist, educator and enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe | REPLAY
Gerald Cournoyer is an artist and educator and an enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. He followed in the footsteps of prominent Dakota painter Oscar Howe to the University of Oklahoma to pursue and eventually achieve his Masters of Fine Arts in painting. He previously attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM where he received an Associate Degree in Fine Arts in painting. He received his BFA and Master’s Degree from the University of South Dakota in interdisciplinary studies. After receiving his MFA from the University of Oklahoma, he was employed as a professor of painting. Cournoyer also holds a Master’s of Arts in Arts Management utilizing his expertise in networking and developing relationships among artists and the funding agencies who support artist philanthropy. He recently returned to school to earn another Master’s degree in Philanthropy and Fundraising from Central Michigan University.
Cournoyer came from a skilled background of stylized ledger art and figurative Indian portraits. Over time, his work expanded into vibrant abstract watercolors and acrylics. This eventually led him into patterns of Lakota quillwork, and rawhide parfleche, beadwork on canvas, including large nonfigurative expanses of color and form that offer the viewer an opportunity to explore the depth of scintillating color combined with Native patterns. These intricate patterns are based on the early geometric patterns of the Northern Plans quill designs and are prominent in the Lakota iconography. Gerald Cournoyer states: “As an artist, I strive to bridge the gap between traditional Lakota art and contemporary movements by incorporating traditional symbols in a contemporary fashion.” His work is shown in regional, national and international venues.

She also incorporates found objects into her works. Some of them she discovers while hiking in the outdoors, and others while wandering through flea markets. Ginny tries to create a narrative in her work that the viewer can translate into their own experience.
She graduated from Dakota State University in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree and a major in art. She retired from teaching art in the Madison Central School District in 2018, and currently creates her art from a studio in her home. Ginny received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1996, and an artist project grant from the South Dakota Arts Council in 2012. She has been in one- and two-person shows at the Oscar Howe Art Gallery at The University of South Dakota, the South Dakota Art Museum, the Firehouse Gallery, the Eastbank Art Gallery, and the Karl Mundt Library, as well as many group-shows. Ginny is also a founding member of Journey Women, a group of female artists who have had three exhibitions at the Washington Pavilion.

Ginny lists artists Connie Herring and Hazel Belvo as the major influences in the development of her work.

The Gift, is based on a traditional Lakotan narrative about when White Buffalo Woman, an emissary from the Pte Oyate (Buffalo Nation), gave a sacred pipe to the Itazipco Oyate, one of seven oyates of the Lakota division of the Oceti Sakowin Confederacy. In the Standing Rock Reservation in 1911, Lone Man shared a narrative, “The White Buffalo Calf Pipe (Ptehin’cala Canonpa),” about the gift, with Frances Densmore who published it in 1918. It is a wondrous account of that event.
The exhibitions features visual artworks, music and poetry by contemporary Lakota artists, musicians and poets. For more information, visit https://www.sdstate.edu/south-dakota-art-museum/exhibit/gift.

- Nov. 9, 2021 |Mary Woster Haug Book Signing
Mary Woster Haug, Professor Emerita of English at South Dakota State University, will sign her just released book, Out of Loneliness: Murder and Memoir, at the South Dakota Art Museum on Tuesday, November 9, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. Haug's books, including her first book, Daughter of the Grasslands, are on sale in the South Dakota Art Museum Store, 1036 Medary Avenue.
Mary Woster Haug has also been published in several anthologies and journals, as well as editing a collection of her brothers' columns entitled The Woster Brothers' Brand: Episodes of a Shared Inheritance. She has been twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
Out of Loneliness: Murder and Memoir opens on Memorial Day 1962 when Bev Waugh, a transgender man strode down a quiet street in a small South Dakota river town and shot Myron Menzie, a young Lakota engaged to Jeanie Stepon, Bev's pretty, teenage lover. Haug was sixteen years old that day and had no context for understanding the complications of a triangulated love affair that led to murder. Forty years later, Haug discovers a picture of Bev. In her memory Bev was brawny, fierce, and freakish. She is stunned to see how tiny and vulnerable Bev appears in the photo. How could her memories be so faulty? This coming-of-age story braids the author's life with Bev's in terms of how the western landscape shaped their understanding of masculinity, gender identity, fathers, love, and grief. It is an unexpected story in an unexpected place that balances the mundane life of a small-town with the violence and the pervasive myth of the cowboy. At heart, this is a book about transformations.

She has lived in South Dakota since she earned her MFA from the University of South Dakota, and she earned her BS degree from South Dakota State University. She is currently Miss Art World South Dakota and the Artist in Residence at the Vermillion Area Arts Council.
