Artist Spotlight 14: Jeff Freeman and Carolyne Landon

The tremendous influence of Jeff Freeman will be evident for many many years to come. Jeff recently retired from the University of South Dakota after a 30 year teaching career which has established him as one of, if not the, most influential artists and educators of the region. Those of us who have had the privilege of knowing him and learning from him can all agree that he has been vital within our development as artists and thinkers. I could go on and on. My dear friend Jeff, thank you.

Carolyne Landon is probably an unfamiliar name for those of you who were not involved in Take the day. 2010. Luckily we all know of her now. Carolyne will be traveling from Portland, Oregon to partake in this year's festivities. Her talents are huge and I am absolutely honored to have her involved this year. Carolyne has a long history with South Dakota and many friends awaiting her return. Thank you so much for making the long journey Carolyne. Carolyne has led an amazing life full of art and adventure. She is always up to something cool so make sure and inquire.http://www.landonstudios.com/
