Two new exhibits including multi-media paintings by Ann McTaggart and pottery by Steve Kammerer will be on display Sunday, Feb. 13, through Thursday, March 31, at Morningside College’s Hickman-Johnson-Furrow Library Center. The exhibits are free and open to the public. Both artists are graduates of Morningside College.
McTaggart’s paintings consists primarily of large, multi-media compositions with an impasto quality and autobiographical focus. The collection celebrates the feminine persona and is reflective of issues that help identify the artist’s individuality.
McTaggart received bachelor’s degrees in nursing and studio art from Morningside College and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine art from the University of South Dakota. When not working from her home studio in Sioux City, McTaggart works part-time as an oncology nurse.
Kammerer’s pottery consists of both classic, functional pieces and creative designs. His pottery reflects a structural consistency of both strength and beauty.
Kammerer is the owner of Whiskey Creek Pottery in Sioux City. He received a bachelor’s degree from Morningside College and master’s degrees in German and interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis in sculpture from the University of South Dakota. He taught in the Sioux City Community Schools for thirteen years prior to opening his studio.
