"Pie in the Sky," a solo exhibition by Samantha Fein, the 2015 Rosenquist Artist in Residence at NDSU, is scheduled May 5-28 in the NDSU Memorial Union Gallery. The exhibition explores the diverse range of work Fein has created throughout her semester as an Artist In Residence in the NDSU Department of Visual Arts.
A public opening reception is set for Thursday, May 7, from 5-7 p.m., and the artist is scheduled to give a gallery talk about her work at 5:30 p.m. that evening.
Fein is an interdisciplinary artist who constructs bizarre and comedic scenes layered with psychosocial content. Trained in the social sciences, her work incorporates elements of ethnography, nonlinear storytelling and absurdist humor. "Pie in the Sky" explores regional symbology – from her upbringing in Arizona to her experiences during the residency in North Dakota.
The NDSU Department of Visual Arts is sponsoring the exhibition.
