Northern Michigan University’s DeVos Art Museum will present an exhibition titled “April South-Olson: Points of Interest.” An opening reception for this show and the concurrent Faculty Biennial exhibition, which celebrates the creativity of NMU School of Art and Design faculty, will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25. Admission is free.
South-Olson is an Upper Peninsula-based artist whose encaustic paintings—pigments mixed with hot wax—explore the human connection to the natural world. Within each landscape, Olson aims to capture a single moment in time. The transparency of the material reveals the present moment while illustrating its connection to the fleeting past.
DeVos Art Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, noon to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
