University Art Galleries honors photographer with Nov. 2 reception

VERMILLION, S.D. -- University Art Galleries at the University of South Dakota will host a reception for photographer Carrie Thompson, 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 in Gallery 110 at the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts. Thompson’s photography is currently on display at Gallery 110 through Dec. 4.

A 2011 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Thompson’s photography explores her relationship with her family, roots, rootlessness and restlessness. This activity is made possible in part by the grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature and by an additional grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
