The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery at Augustana University opens “Highlights from the Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection: The Art of Augustana Teachers,” which will be on view from Thursday, Feb. 10, through Saturday, Mar. 19. A gallery reception will take place on Friday, Feb. 11, from 7-9 p.m., with the gallery talk beginning at 7:30 p.m.
“Highlights from the Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection: The Art of Augustana Teachers” is an exhibition that brings together a variety of artworks that have primarily been purchased or gifted to the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery. Additional pieces have come from The Center For Western Studies and Mikkelsen Library collections, as well as private loans.
This year’s collection of works feature past faculty and instructors who have had a great influence on Augustana’s Art Department. This show aims to highlight the talent that past instructors have brought into the Art Department and instilled within the university community. Each individual within the exhibition is an integral piece in the ongoing history of artists, professors and individuals who are involved in not only dedicating themselves to creating art, but fostering an artistic mindset among generations of burgeoning artists.
