USD student exhibit ‘Different Atmospheres’ to be displayed

VERMILLION, S.D. -- Students Grant Lacey and Anthony L. Millette from The University of South Dakota will present their senior exhibition, “Different Atmospheres,” April 29 through May 1 at the Washington Street Arts Center in Vermillion.

This exhibition will showcase some of the technical and aesthetic research of the past semester. Lacey is a fine arts major with an emphasis in ceramics from Trent, S.D.  His work is primarily wood or gas fired wheel thrown functional ware.  After graduation he plans to attend graduate school. Millette, a fine arts major with an emphasis in ceramics, is from Sioux Falls, S.D. His pottery is made with a combination of wheel thrown and hand built forms with an emphasis on movement and gesture. The work is then fired in either a traditional wood burning kiln or an experimental gas kiln in order to further embellish the surface of his pots. Following graduation, Millette also plans to attend graduate school.

Viewing hours for "Different Atmospheres" are 1 to 4 p.m. beginning Wednesday, April 29. A reception for the artists is scheduled from 8 to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 1.
