USD professor to exhibit fortune teller series at Art Galleries
"Scenes from the Dreams of a Fortune Teller" are visual stories taken from objects collected in Banasiak’s studio using environments, characters, scenes and sets along with fortune telling techniques, and games of chance to present a visual script of mythological scenarios. Banasiak photographs each scene with color slide film from a variety of perspectives and prints images on an 8x10 Polaroid, pulls the Polaroid film through rollers to spread the chemistry and transfers the material to print maker’s paper.
"I especially like the visual effect of the transfer print, as it presents the scene in a soft and dreamlike language, with marks and residue reflecting the history of its creation," stated Banasiak, who has received several prestigious teaching awards at USD while exhibiting his art across the United States.
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 Eddie Welch at (605) 677-3177 or e-mail email@example.com.
