The artwork of Rodger Ellingson is displayed at the Center for Western Studies (CWS) in an exhibit entitled "Sioux Falls in Color," Monday, Sept. 16, through Friday, Jan. 10. An artist reception will be held Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
With its vivid and dynamic imagery, Rodger Ellingson’s gallery exhibition, "Sioux Falls in Color," is truly a whimsical love letter to our community. The Center for Western Studies is excited to showcase a vision of our city as you have never seen it before. The urban landscapes of our beloved Sioux Falls, past and present, are splashed across the canvas with an obvious joy and mirth, which could only be created by an artist possessed of fantastic talent, and with a pride and passion for their subject.
In this collection, Ellingson has interpreted many well-known locations, including some that hold great personal significance for him, like the Lincoln High School Band, First Congregational Church, the Levitt Stage, and Augustana University. The exhibit also features some hand-pulled monoprints of Sioux Falls.
