VERMILLION, S.D. -- The University of South Dakota will host a collection of Alejandro Rosales Lugo’s most recent works, “Sur,” from Dec. 1 through Dec. 10 in Gallery 110 at the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts.

Sur is a body of works by Lugo that range in varying styles from the realistic realm to the magical. Lugo, of Victoria, Mexico, studied the art of painting in his hometown, and subsequently he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy under the guidance of Giullio Turcato between the years of 1978-1980. Since 1976, Lugo has presented professionally in galleries and museums in Mexico, the United States and Italy.

Throughout the 1980s, Lugo traveled to numerous countries in Europe, including Ireland and Russia visiting the most famous museums and galleries. In addition to painting, he has published four books of poetry: “Bicicletas de Poesía,” “Mamaleon,” “El Paisaje Del Cuerpoand,” and “De Adán A Cézanne Pasando Por Newton.”
