Bede Art Gallery Announces Paul Peterson Exhibit and 2013-14 Schedule

Published Date8\29\2013
Mount Marty College Bede Art Gallery is hosting artist Paul Peterson and his oil paintings entitled, "Oscillating Landscapes", that will be on display through September 27th. A free reception and gallery talk is scheduled for September 27th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and open to the public.

Peterson is a South Dakota artist who lives and works in Sturgis. He has recently completed a series of oil paintings for a show at the South Dakota Art Museum as part of the South Dakota Artist Series. Growing up on a farm in southeastern South Dakota gave Peterson an intimate understanding of rural life and a unique perspective as an artist. Viewers of his recent body of work will not only perceive a sense of place but will also experience the complicated and sometimes contradictory feelings many rural residents experience over their lifetimes. The paintings are colorful, emotionally autobiographical and reflect the artist's feeling of connection to the land.

  • Sept. 30-Nov. 22 Nancy Losacker and Norma Wilson, "Rivers, Birds, and Sky"
  • Nov. 25-Dec. 13 Mount Marty College Student Art Show
