Marcee Ekstrum's interest in painting was influenced by her grandmother, who did china painting and invited her to arts and crafts shows. Marcee didn’t think she would ever become an artist. That was more than 30 years ago, and now she discovered her artistic skills this year when she was looking for a new hobby. She started painting on ceramic tiles. She has painted coasters, hot plates, and pictures, and makes jewelry with acrylic paint.
The method that she uses is called acrylic pour painting. It’s a combination of acrylic paint, Elmer’s glue and water mixed together and poured over canvas. The canvases are tilted so that the surface and sides are covered. Marcee adds shampoo, rubbing alcohol, shaving cream and other ingredients and uses a hair dryer to create cells and other effects in her paintings. This type of painting is fun because the artist never knows how it will turn out. Each painting is unique and one of a kind.
Marcee also enjoys crocheting, reading, playing with her cat and hiking. She is a graduate of Augustana College and a native to Kimball, SD.
The artwork of Dustin Sinner will be displayed in Main Gallery now to end of October 2018.
Dustin lives and works at his studio in Watertown, SD. His artworks are created with a variety of acrylic painting and mixed media techniques. Layered textures are present in his paintings created using different palette knives and acrylic mediums. You can also see he has a contrasted style in many of his contemporary pieces. These serene paintings are created using a combination of the fluid painting styles as well as traditional brush techniques. His inspiration comes from years of being a graphic artist, photographer, traveler and husband to his wife Missy. Dustin went to the University of Sioux Falls for his BFA where he focused on painting & photography.
