New Artist Exhibition at Cedar Crest is "Slightly Disturbed"
Cedar Crest College will feature the artwork of Jim Denomie titled “Slightly Disturbed” beginning Oct. 28 through Jan. 3 in the Center for Visual Research, formerly the Lachaise Gallery. An artist reception will take place Oct. 28 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Harmon Hall of Peace, directly outside the gallery.
Denomie was born in Hayward, Wisconsin on July 6, 1955 and currently lives in Franconia, MN. Primarily a painter (oil, acrylic and watercolor), he also creates unique works of art in ink, and oil pastel drawings, printmaking, photography, and found object sculpture.
In 1995, Denomie received a B.F.A. degree from the University of Minnesota. Since then, he has shown extensively in the U.S. and in Europe in numerous group and solo exhibitions. His work has been placed in the permanent collections of numerous museums as well as many other public and private collections. Also, Denomie’s work has been included in local and national publications and he is the recipient of several prestigious grants and awards.
In 2005, Denomie completed a task of painting at least one painting a day, for one year. Much of the work was showcased in the exhibition “New Skins” at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in 2007, and he was named one of City Pages Artist of the Year for 2007. In 2008, he was awarded a Bush Artist Fellowship and in 2009, an Eiteljorg Native American Fine Art Fellowship and most recently, a 2012 McKnight Fellowship.
The Center for Visual Research is open every day, except Sunday, from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
