Artwork on display in JFAC Gallery

ABERDEEN, S.D. – From Oct. 14 to Nov. 30, 2021, the work of artist Dwayne Wilcox will be on display in the Johnson Fine Arts Center Gallery.

Wilcox currently resides in Rapid City, S.D., and is a member of the Oglala Sioux tribe. He is best known and celebrated for his Ledger Art, a term for predominately Plains Indian narrative drawing or painting on paper or cloth.

Wilcox uses humor and recognizable aspects of contemporary culture to convey a message or narrative. Each is reflective, personal, and tells a story.

Paintings by Wilcox will also be featured in this exhibition. Wilcox’s paintings are dynamic, with striking colors and engaging imagery.

A reception for Wilcox will be held Thursday, Oct. 14, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the JFAC Gallery. The event is free and open to the public.
