The South Dakota Governor’s 7th Biennial Art Exhibition is now on display at the South Dakota Art Museum through April 16. This juried exhibition, which premiered Aug. 19 at the Dahl Arts Center in Rapid City, showcases the work of artists currently living and working in South Dakota and celebrates the tremendous quality and the unique diversity of artistic creativity within the state.
From clean and geometric, to messy and indistinct, viewers of “Between Order and Chaos” will be forced to make their own interpretation of each piece, as their ideas about art and representation are challenged.
The exhibit premiered at the South Dakota Art Museum Jan. 26 and will be on display until May 21. Jodi Lundgren, the museum’s coordinator of exhibitions, says viewers can expect to be visually excited and challenged by the delightful mixture of pure abstraction.
“Women are making a huge contribution to the arts in South Dakota and it is important to acknowledge it,” said South Dakota State University Professor Jeannie French.
Jodi Lundgren, the South Dakota Art Museum’s coordinator of exhibitions, said viewers will be intrigued upon visiting the museum’s newest exhibit, “Women at Work,” which features 18 selected female artists who live and work in South Dakota. The diverse range of artwork includes paintings, prints, installations, glasswork, artist’s books and sculptures.
