Jan. 3-25: Exhibit to Feature Works by German Expressionist Kollwitz, Sioux Falls Native Carver
The Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection of the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery at Augustana College includes more than 3,500 works from artists revered around the world.
In its newest exhibit, "Highlights from the Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection," the gallery will showcase long-time “master” members of the collection such as Winslow Homer, Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso, alongside significant, never-before-exhibited works from recent gifts and acquisitions.
In addition to a group of prints by the master German Expressionist Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945), donated by Rahn Westby, class of 1971, the exhibit will debut works by Sioux Falls native Craig Carver (1954-1992). The son of Charlotte Carver, former director of the South Dakota Arts Council and long-time arts advocate, Craig Carver traveled extensively and exhibited throughout the region, New York City and Detroit, where he resided and worked as an arts administrator and advocate. Charlotte Carver has made a significant donation of artwork from her son’s estate.
A gallery reception is set for 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 13, with a Director's Talk scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through Wednesday, Jan. 25.
"The Gallery’s collection has grown due to the generous gifts of alumni and friends who collect artwork for their own personal enjoyment, but who also recognize the importance of sharing significant works of art," said Dr. Lindsay Twa, assistant professor of art and director of Augustana's Eide/Dalrymple Gallery. "We have chosen to focus this particular exhibition on highlighting some of our most recent gifts and acquisitions. We're looking forward to sharing these with the community."
