USD exhibits art by Elinor Noteboom The University Art Galleries at The University of South Dakota is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by Elinor Noteboom. Titled "Prolonged Tranquility," the show features works created by the Orange City, IA, artist inspired by a visit to Japan and a haunting sense of connectedness between the landscapes of Japan and Iowa.
Noteboom earned her B.S. degree in art education from Northwestern College and spent two years doing graduate studies in art at The University of South Dakota. "Prolonged Tranquility" will be on display in the Main Gallery of the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts in Vermillion May 14 through June 3.
A special reception honoring the artist is scheduled for May 31 from 3 to 5 p.m.
After contemplation, reading, and photographing, the artist created a series of paintings and prints that pulled these opposites together. Noteboom has spent the past several years working on this project and has developed an exhibition with the assistance of a grant from the Iowa Arts Council.
