Nancy Losacker has found that the children of South Dakota are hungry for art—hungry for something they can get their hands on and shape to their own ideas and imaginations. Through Losacker’s residencies, students who have had limited exposure to the making of art and three-dimensional forms are able to form their ideas into art through the medium of clay. A 2000 recipient of the South Dakota Artist’s grant, Losacker has exhibited extensively, including a 2005 solo show in Wik auf Föhr, Germany and a 2003 exhibit at the Allison Gallery in Greenville, TN. In 2005, her public art installation Above, Below, Within, a 260 square foot glass mosaic, was placed in the Administration Building and Student Center at Minnesota West Community & Technical College in Worthington. Her works are in the permanent collections of the Washington Pavilion of Arts & Science Visual Arts Center in Sioux Falls, and in collections around the Midwest.
