Through March 8: Exhibit of Paintings, Pastels by Hinsvark Eide
The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery at Augustana College features the work of alumna Diane J. Hinsvark Eide '58 in its newest exhibition "Fruit – Figures – Flora: Paintings and Pastels by Diane J. Hinsvark Eide." A gallery reception and artist's talk was 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15.
"It is not often that an artist is at home equally with abstraction, still life, landscape and the human figure. Rarer still is the artist who can capture each of these subjects expertly in pastels, oil, acrylic and watercolor painting. Diane Hinsvark Eide, however, is no ordinary painter," said Dr. Lindsay Twa, assistant professor of Art and director of the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery. "In this solo exhibition, which brings together works from the 1990s to the present, viewers can experience the richness of Eide’s lifelong exploration into classical artistic expression."
"Her still lifes of arranged fruit evoke a sense of high drama and expressive mood; her landscapes capture the atmospheric personalities of disparate places, from the Southwest’s intense light, to rural Norway in winter; and her human figures, caught in moments of quiet repose, all reveal the beauty and infinite variety of returning again and again to art’s most classical subject matter," Twa said.
Viewers learned more about the exhibit at the gallery reception from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15. The event featured an artist's talk at 6 p.m.
