The Dakota Series exhibit features prints by Robert Schwieger inspired by over 20 years of life experience in North Dakota while a professor at Minot State University.
He states: "The constructed print evolves through quiet introspection and a sustained search for a personal heritage. A search that unites generational and world views with a somewhat 'graphics oriented' process. The catalyst is a philosophical sensitivity and concern addressing issues of political bias, discrimination, deception, body language, heroes, novelty, fraud, disinformation and organisms and their precarious life on the edge and under the assault of pollution, experimentation and other dreads of humankind and technology. These elements are simply presented within an outright sensuousness of pattern and decoration…..perhaps an attempt to confront the anxiety surrounding the condition."
The exhibit opens in the St. Charles Hall Art Gallery on September 15 and will run through October 1. The gallery is open from 9am to 9pm weekdays and is closed weekends and college holidays.
Free and open to the public.
