Artist and musician Paul Peterson's exhibit "In Denial of Context: Landscapes and Other Ephemera" is at the Dahl Arts Center through April 23rd. The exhibit showcases Peterson's paintings while exploring themes dealing with transitions that have taken place in rural life (particularly in South Dakota) over the past century. Most of these images are landscapes, some more abstracted than others, all painted with a passionate brushstroke. In 2012, Paul received an Artist Fellowhsip Grant from the South Dakota Arts Council. This grant was based on continued research, production and exhibiting his large body of paintings. Paul Peterson joined Dakota Midday to talk about his paintings that have influenced his own relationship with the South Dakota landscape.
