ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University student Jeanna Jerde invites the public to her senior art exhibit, on display April 14-25 at the Beulah Williams Library
An opening reception for the exhibit is set for April 17 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Jerde primarily composes three-dimensional paintings, often to render symbolic realism. She has spent much of her time studying with professor Greg Blair, professor Peter Kilian and professor Nadya Preszler in NSU’s art department
The art student grew up in Aberdeen with parents Vicki and Lloyd Jerde, graduating from Central High School in 2009. “I chose to attend Northern because of the awesome fine arts department and affordable prices,” she said.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in art education and music education this May, Jerde plans to attend graduate school or obtain a teaching position in either field.
