ABERDEEN, S.D. – Artist Alicia Dietz’s “Collective Cadence” exhibition will be on display in the Northern State University Johnson Fine Arts Center Gallery from Feb. 4 through March 29.
An opening reception for the exhibition will be held in the JFAC Gallery from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 4.
Dietz accumulated many sources of inspiration from her years of traveling and meeting people around the world. According to her website, “As a woman, a soldier and a dreamer, I have many experiences to draw from, and I use those experiences to fuel my pieces. I employ a variety of media and techniques to include image transfers, encaustics and glass to enhance my furniture pieces. Always looking for a new experiment, I find the journey of the creative process its own reward.”
Dietz received a BSJ in advertising/journalism from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, in 2001; two woodworking and furniture-making degrees from Vermont Woodworking School in Fairfax, Vt., in 2012 and 2013; and a Master of Fine Arts degree in craft and material studies at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va., in 2016.
