Students to exhibit ‘photoGRAPHIC’ at W.H. Over Museum

VERMILLION, S.D. -- Five students graduating from the College of Fine Arts at The University of South Dakota will showcase “photoGRAPHIC,” at the W.H. Over Museum, April 26-29.

The exhibition includes art by three B.F.A. students emphasizing in graphic design, including Katie Divine of Raymond, Neb., and her sketch-quality illustrations applied mainly to shoes, which will be on sale at the show. Stacia Swenson of Sioux Falls, S.D. creates information graphics for family trees, while Sharon Wegner-Larsen of Hurley, S.D. focuses on pattern design as applied to textiles for home decorating. The patterns she creates have an illustrative, hand-drawn feel in bright, vibrant colors.

Two additional artists, Sarah Horacek of Yankton, S.D. and Noelle Vondrak of Sioux City, Iowa, are photography students. Horacek uses found objects to create dream-like environments and Vondrak’s work focuses on travel and architecture through traditional black and white photography.

A reception for all five artists is scheduled at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 29 in the W.H. Over Museum, open at no cost to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
