“Everything Always - Already Ends,” the work of visual artist and printmaker Myles Dunigan, opens Friday, July 7, at the little gallery in downtown Benson. A reception is set for 6:00 to 10:00pm. The exhibition coincides with the 2017 edition of Frogman’s Print Workshops, based at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Dunigan, a native of Massachusetts, majored in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. After graduating in 2010, he worked at Wellesley College as its printmaking and 2D media technician. With unrestricted access to the Wellesley print shop, Dunigan continued exploring the themes from his undergraduate thesis while incorporating photography and complex collaged elements into his work. The artist left Wellesley in 2013 to pursue a residency at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, Calif. He is currently pursuing a Master’s of Fine Art degree at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.

“Everything Always – Already Ends” is Donigan’s M.F.A. thesis exhibition. His work explores the role that technology plays in shaping the environment and how the landscape image conjures awe, beauty and terror.

“All of my landscapes are fabrications, handmade models and digital renderings, which are then transformed into works on paper via printmaking and photography,” Donigan said. “My models grant me a vast codex of imagery to experiment with, editing and combining myriad spaces with both the computer and my hand. The outcome is always unknown. My process is about searching for the spiritual within the artificial.”

Dunigan actively exhibits his work, with recent and upcoming exhibitions at the Far Eastern Museum in Russia, Museum Blue in St. Louis, the International Print Center of New York, Robert Blackburn 20/20 in New York, The South Arkansas Art Center and the Peter Miller Fine Art Gallery in Providence, RI.

About Frogman’s Print Workshops
Frogman's began back in 1979 when Professor Lloyd Menard led five school teachers from Sioux City, Iowa, to the Black Hills of South Dakota for a drawing class. Prints were first introduced in 1981, and the workshops evolved into the Black Hills Print Symposium, which took place at various sites in western South Dakota. The Black Hills provided an amazingly beautiful backdrop, but by 1996, the workshops had outgrown the confines of the Hills and moved to Beresford, South Dakota, the home of Frogman's Press & Gallery. The workshops would only spend two years based in Beresford before moving to the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. 2016 marked Frogman's first year at UNO, where the Frogman took his first-ever print class more than 50 years ago.
