About Ginny Freitag

Ginny Freitag is an artist and teacher living in Madison, South Dakota. She primarily works in mixed media ceramic, sculpting the female figure and its relationships with nature and ritual. She also incorporates found objects into her works. Some of them she discovers while hiking in the outdoors, and others while wandering through flea markets. Ginny tries to create a narrative in her work that the viewer can translate into their own experience.

She graduated from Dakota State University in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree and a major in art. She retired from teaching art in the Madison Central School District in 2018, and currently creates her art from a studio in her home. Ginny received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1996, and an artist project grant from the South Dakota Arts Council in 2012. She has been in one- and two-person shows at the Oscar Howe Art Gallery at The University of South Dakota, the South Dakota Art Museum, the Firehouse Gallery, the Eastbank Art Gallery, and the Karl Mundt Library, as well as many group-shows. Ginny is also a founding member of Journey Women, a group of female artists who have had three exhibitions at the Washington Pavilion. Ginny has taken numerous graduate classes, also spending time in Grand Marais each summer in a mentored workshop with noted artist and women activist Hazel Belvo. Ginny lists artists Connie Herring and Hazel Belvo as the major influences in the development of her work.
