The Talley Gallery is featuring works of the late Eugene Dalzotto, one of the first art professors at Bemidji State, in an exhibition entitled "THIS IS WHAT IT IS" that will run from June 7-July 2 and again from Aug. 23-Sept. 3. Dalzotto, who was instrumental in the formation of the Department of Visual Arts at BSU, was a master printmaker and Fulbright Scholar who studied in Europe and settled in Bemidji. He taught art and art history at the University until his retirement in 1985. He remained in Bemidji after retirement, producing works in his home studio until the late 1990s. Dalzotto passed away in 2009. Friends and colleagues gathered in the Gallery on June 7 for the opening reception and celebration.
