Student artists on display with Elements of Being at USD
A reception for artists Masahiro Wadayama, Monica Mayer, Desirae Carson, Kathryn Vermillion and Aleisha Fuhrman is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. to celebrate their unique art concepts. Wadayama, an art major, grew up in Japan. Despite no prior art education, he became a fine arts major with an emphasis in ceramics. Mayer is an art major with an emphasis in graphic design from Bloomington, Minn. Her work includes organized, clean-cut and stimulating designs that flow freely from one element to the next. Her show consists of designs for a stationery company called "Noelle Stationery." Carson, of Yankton, S.D., will graduate with an emphasis in photography. Her work includes various western landscapes and her show will reveal an assortment of "tree scapes," shown in crisp, pulsating colors. Vermillion, born in Greenfield, Mass., is completing her undergraduate degree in photography. A member of the Mohawk Trail Indian community of Massachusetts and the Wase Wakpa Indian community of Vermillion, Vermillion’s mixed Native American upbringing has influenced her work, including painting, photography and mixed media. Fuhrman, from Norfolk, Neb., uses digital photography along with sculptural elements to create images that invoke phobic episodes. The Main Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts is open free of charge to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends. Tours and special showings during non-public hours are available upon request. For more information about this exhibition, please contact The University of South Dakota Art Galleries Director John A.
