Kangley's paintings are on display A new art display in Sletwold Hall of the W. H. Over Museum demonstrates the work of Kelly Kangley, senior student in The University of South Dakota School of Fine Arts. It will be exhibited from now to June 10.
Since her paintings represent her studies during the past two years, Kangley calls her show "Works to Date." Six of the 20 paintings represent her thoughts and feelings inspired by studies of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Missouri River and their meeting with other people. Most of Kangley's paintings show a wide variety of interest from representation pictures of people to abstractions of ducks, for example.
Kangley started painting in O'Gorman High School, Sioux Falls, when she came in touch with an art teacher. That experience caused her to change her direction. At present, she plans to go into the book publishing business, designing book covers.
Most of the works on exhibit at the Over Museum may be purchased. She will be in Vermillion on Thursday, June 7 to discuss her works with anyone who would like to make contact with her.
Following this show, we will exhibit "Clay County Retrospective," a photographic show of pictures from the 19th and early 20th centuries. This exhibit was originally prepared in celebration of the South Centennial in 1989.
The museum is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday 1 to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
