Please join the Fine Arts Faculty at the Ruddell Gallery on Thursday, February 20th, 5-7PM for a reception celebrating the sculptural work of artist and Black Hills State Univeristy Studio Art Faculty member Quintin Owens. The exhibition entitled Digital Clay: Exploring Terrain Data and Topography surveys the nearby terrain of Look Out Mountain, Crow Peak, Spearfish Mountain, Bear Butte and Terry Peak as objects of wonder.

Owens work utilizes a ceramic 3D printer to give form to topographical contour maps, illustrations of native plants and digital terrain files of each location. What you see is a merging of digital processes, material exploration and place. By turning to the language of maps and data to create form, joining a long history of constructing and distorting place and scale. Owens traverses between a virtual space of possibility and the visceral space of immediate experience, leaving a sense of wonder regarding how many ways anything can be known.
