Photo exhibit focuses on spirit, nature of plains
�� The University of South Dakota Art Galleries, the USD Foundation and the USD Alumni Association are pleased to present Spirit and Nature of the Plains, an exhibition of photographs by Sandy Robertson.

The exhibit will be shown in the Heritage Room Gallery of the Wagner Alumni Center from July 1 to Sept. 1. A public reception for the artist is scheduled for Tuesday, July 11 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Spirit and Nature of the Plains illustrates the beauty and history of South Dakota � of her peoples' spirit and of the land that surrounds the Missouri River valley.�The show features work from two series of photographs, one featuring Missouri River landscapes and the other capturing the stark power of church steeples.�

"With this exhibit, viewers are invited to experience the tranquility of both nature and church," said Robertson. "One needs to look no further than the next bend in the river to witness an abundance of beauty and history. Similarly, if one looks to the horizon a steeple will testify to the spiritual history of a rugged pioneer people."

Robertson discovered her love for photography while pursuing a degree in interdisciplinary studies at The University of South Dakota.�This love is combined with her passion for history and the South Dakota lifestyle.

On most days you will find Robertson either in the photographic lab at USD, exploring the countryside with camera in hand, or with her family at their home outside of Vermillion.

The Wagner Alumni Center is located at 1110 N. Dakota Street. The Heritage Gallery is open to the public between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
