Micawber Medley now on display at University Art Galleries

VERMILLION, S.D. -- Prints, photographs and graphic design pieces created by five B.F.A. students graduating from the University of South Dakota in May are on display April 23-27 at the John A. Day Gallery in an exhibit titled “Micawber Medley.”

Jamie Holmberg of Mitchell, S.D. and Jodie Boss-Wachal of Columbus, Neb. are showcasing their photography. Holmberg photographs a variety of subject matter often focusing on complex subjects such as mortality and age. Boss-Wachal’s photographs, which are often nature shots and landscape portraits, are created through techniques such as long exposures and double exposures.

Samantha DeVries, a native of Vermillion, is completing her B.F.A. with an emphasis in printmaking. Her display includes various printmaking methods such as intaglio and screen printing, and focus on revisiting childhood memories.

Therese Osborne of Sturgis, S.D. and Joshua Jorgensen of Parker, S.D. are both students of graphic design. Osborne’s exhibit incorporates decorative and traditional elements into her designs while Jorgensen’s works showcase the various skills in graphic design he has mastered during his studies at USD.

A reception for the artists of “Micawber Medley” is from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 27. The reception and exhibit are free open to the public at the Day Gallery on the USD campus.
