A show dear to the human heart


RAPID CITY, SD (PNAN) On view through March 8, 2017 in the Dahl Arts Center (www.thedahl.org), works by Dede Farrar are on view in “Animal Attraction” –  an exhibit of paintings that focuses on animals that have close relationships with humans, including pets, wildlife and working animals found on farms and ranches. An artist’s reception is on Friday, January 13 from 5:00-7:00 pm.

Using rich acrylic colors and textures, Farrar’s representational approach to these animals helps viewers to see these relationships in new ways. Her goal is simply to enable her audience to find peace, intellectual stimulation, beauty and happiness through the fruits of her artistic labor.




Dede Farrar (www.farrarartworks.com)  earned her BS in Education from Chadron State College and her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from the University of South Dakota, Vermillion. Farrar has visited Europe several times and has traveled widely, especially in the Western United States. She feels travel is important to her continuing education as an artist and finds travel fulfilling and stimulating.
