Ammermann, a native of Clara City, Minn., graduated from Augustana in 2004 with a degree in art and began her career with Lawrence & Schiller in Sioux Falls. Ammermann then earned a master's degree in advertising from Virginia Commonwealth University, a nationally top-ranked design program. This enabled her to pursue her dreams of affecting consumers on a global level. "I wanted to do more than just make the work look pretty," states Ammermann. "I wanted to be the brains behind the idea that made a campaign succeed." Ammermann established herself as an art director at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco. During her time there, Goodby was named Adweek's Agency of the Decade, beating out shops from around the world for the honor. She is now an art director at Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners, a smaller, creative-driven agency in Sausalito, CA, which was recently named Adweek's Small Agency of the Decade. Ammermann has worked with many major national and international clients, including: Columbia Sportswear, Häagen Dazs, Hewlett Packard, MINI Cooper, Priceline, RadioShack, Sorel, Sprint and Comcast. Her exhibition will feature a selection of her most important advertising and graphic design works.

The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery is located on Commons Circle (30th Street and Grange Avenue), in the Center for Visual Arts at Augustana College. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The gallery is open to the public and free of charge.
