'Eclecticism' on display at USD Artist Jeff Freeman will display his exhibit, titled "Eclecticism" in The University of South Dakota Main Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts.
The exhibit is open to the public through January.
Freeman is a USD faculty member who earned his master of fine arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has taught at USD since 1980 and has exhibited in many locations across the United States and Europe.
Freeman has received numerous grants including awards from the South Dakota Arts Council, Arts Midwest, and the National Endowment for the Arts. His work is in the permanent collections of a number of important museums and art centers including the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, NE and the Sheldon Art Center in Lincoln, NE.
"This work is a contemplative device that allows me both to decipher and encrypt various symbols and forms that have to do with my effort to find a reasonable balance between that which is static and that which is inventive, between the concrete and the nebulous," said Freeman of his art. "As such, my work has to do with what I consider to be the ritual dance of various entities which we each experience in a number of ways as we try to assert ourselves. The forms and symbols I use are references on the path."
The University of South Dakota Main Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts is open to the public free of charge weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 1 to 5 p.m.
