"Retrospective" gallery at DSU features work of local artist
Posted on 8/16/2012
The Dickinson State University Art Gallery will host "Retrospective," a collection by Dr. Harlan Larsen, Aug. 20-31. "Retrospective" features works of acrylics, mixed media, pastels and watercolor. An artist's reception will be held Monday, Aug. 27 from 2-4 p.m. in the DSU Art Gallery, Klinefelter Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Larsen is retired Dickinson physician and a self-taught artist. He has been practicing various art forms for many years and still considers himself to be a student to this day. Larsen's pieces capture a variety of nature scenes and his works often house a hidden message. He is a friend of the DSU Art Department and on a number of occasions has graciously donated his time and several art supplies to art students and faculty.
The DSU Art Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday. Support for the gallery comes from Dickinson State University, private donations and the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which is funded by the state of North Dakota and the National Endowment for the Arts.
