A painter, printmaker, and sculptor, Magda McGowan Szeitz is an artist to watch in the Fargo-Moorhead area. This work on paper, focused on hard edges and measured spaces, is from a series by Szeitz which reflects a departure from her work. The jester as subject, the use of line and color, and a playful visual narrative embrace a more unpredictable and intuitive process. A humorless story, told without text, adds another important element to this work.
Szeitz earned a B.A. in art education and a B.F.A. in graphic design and illustration from Minnesota State University Moorhead. Her work can be found in both private and public collections.
