Great Places Series – Virtual Exhibition
View stunning artwork from the comfort of your home! The Great Places Series by artist Laura Jewell is now virtual and available to view on the NSU Art Galleries webpage.
The Great Places Series captures the landscapes of South Dakota’s State Parks in watercolor. Jewell received a South Dakota Arts Council grant to complete this body of work, during which she visited each South Dakota State Park. Jewell’s work embodies the natural hues of South Dakota’s environment, with the iconic horizon line anchoring each composition. The visual texture of splatters, and blending of colors adds an expressive, abstract element to each landscape.
Jewell received her BFA from the University of South Dakota, and currently lives in Sioux Falls, SD. Her work has been exhibited and resides in collections all across the Midwest, and Western regions of the U.S. In 2016 she received the Artist Career Development grant from the South Dakota Arts Council.
For the health and safety of NSU students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community, the Northern Art Galleries are closed to the public.
