Students in the Gallery

As a part of Augustana College, the mission of the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery is to contribute to the educational and cultural vitality of the College, the surrounding community, and the state of South Dakota. The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery inspires the artists of today and tomorrow, and serves as a resource for teaching and promoting life-long learning through its permanent collection and temporary exhibition program with accompanying artist visits, gallery talks, and educational materials.

As Augustana’s primary art display space, the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery hosts an average of nine exhibits per year, including Augustana’s senior art show. The gallery also exhibits the work of professional artists, who discuss their careers and art with students in master classes and with the general public during opening receptions.
