“As an artist, I am deeply motivated to make art that touches people in the midst of the everyday,” Parsons says. “My artistic practice is composed of two facets: public art commissions and a private studio practice. My studio practice is focused primarily in two-dimensional works on paper and canvas and their subsequent exhibition.”

Parsons works in charcoal, oil paint, litho stones, screen mesh, and etching ink. His work is reviewed in Architectural Record, Sculpture, Art in America, and Public Art Review.

An artist reception will be held Friday, August 7, from 5:00-9:00 p.m. The Eastbank Art Gallery and Studio is located at 401 E. Eighth Street, Suite 116, in Sioux Falls.
