THANK YOU IOWA ARTS COUNCIL FOR AWARDING ME A GRANT OF $5,000 TO CONTINUE MY PROJECT
LOST IN THE MIDWEST
“These recovery grants represent a significant investment in Iowa’s creative workforce,” Iowa Arts Council Administrator David Schmitz said. “In addition to the grants awarded directly to artists, many arts organizations received support to hire or bring back artistic personnel, many of whom lost jobs, gigs and income during the pandemic.”
Lost in the Midwest will be exhibited in 2022/2023 (postponed bc of Covid) at the BORZELLO GALLERY, KNOX COLLEGE, Galesburg, IL.
"With an eye for the strange and beautiful, artist Sandra Dyas presents an immersive experience in her latest series of photographs documenting people and places in Lost in the Midwest, a visual diary of contemporary Midwest life embellished with a sense of nostalgia. Dyas looks closely at the Midwest’s cultural landscape and the complexity of living here, with the intent of showing what is present and what is slowly vanishing.
"EARTHLY BEAUTY", a two-woman show is currently being exhibited at the Waterloo Center for the Arts. Susan Coleman, friend and colleague, fellow artist, and myself are very thrilled to be exhibiting our newest bodies of work -- Earthly Beauty!
"Earthly Beauty" works by Sue Coleman and Sandra Louise Dyas, muses on the ordinary and often overlooked aspects of the local environment, beauty that is unpolished and raw, quirky and tangled, sometimes difficult to interpret and codify.
Curator Chawne Paige is busy hanging the BEAUTIFUL works of Susan Coleman and Sandy Dyas for our new exhibit “Earthly Beauty” going up in the Forsberg Riverside Gallery!!! More details coming soon.
WCA Registrar Elizabeth Andrews is busy working on a new exhibit in the Forsberg Riverside Galleries!!! More details coming soon
