Kiel Mutschelknaus, a 2007 graduate of Augustana College, is returning to Augustana’s Eide/Dalrymple Gallery for his first major solo exhibition. “A Kiel Mutschelknaus Retrospective: The Early Years” runs through Saturday, Feb. 5. A closing reception with the artist will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 4.

Mutschelknaus’ work combines drawing, graphic design and installation in a playful and edgy approach.

Mutschelknaus is a graduate of Brandon Valley High School. After receiving his degree from Augustana, he worked as a graphic designer for Fresh Produce, a Sioux Falls-based advertising agency. He currently resides in Michigan where he is an MFA candidate at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.

The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery is located on Commons Circle (30th Street and Grange Avenue), in the Center for Visual Arts at Augustana College. The gallery is open to the public and free of charge. Hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Saturday noon to 5:00 p.m.
