RED DEER- As Dean of the School of the Creative Arts at RDC, Jason Frizzell still makes time to express his artistic passion. "Being a practicing artist is important to me personally and professionally," said Frizzell. "It is part of who I am, so carving out studio time is a priority."

Frizzell’s Worn Out Shoes and Back Page News, is currently on display at the Herringer Kiss Gallery in Calgary until December 23.

It features 12 miniature dioramas that showcase uncertain relationships and explore themes of isolation, transition, denial and discovery.

Frizzell’s exhibition has come together over several years.

"Worn Out Shoes and Back Page News has been produced over the past two years, but it is the vein of sculptural work that I have been working on for the last ten years," said Frizzell, a full-time RDC faculty member since 1999.

Frizzell is appreciative of RDC’s encouragement to continually explore creative avenues. "The support that Red Deer College faculty and staff receive to pursue their professional research and creative production is tremendous. Our RDC faculty, technical support staff and administration team are practicing artists, committed to teaching and learning, and the pursuit of excellence in their individual fields," said Frizzell.

His work can be viewed on the Herringer Kiss Gallery website.
