TOPO is a reflection on Look Out Mountain, Crow Peak, Spearfish Mountain, Bear Butte and Terry Peak as objects of wonder. Each location is represented by its seven highest topographic lines utilizing topographical contour maps and satellite elevation data produced by NASA’s Space Shuttle Endeavor. Quintin uses the language of maps and data to create form. This work is an effort to traverse between documentation of place and ever changing encounters of immediate experience. The TOPO exhibition is made up of four different series. Terrains and Prairie Grass both employ the use of a 3D printer to print the forms of contour loops as ceramic objects. The Cairns series uses a computer controlled milling machine to cut the wood contours of the topographical lines. The title for the final series is a playful reference to graffiti and this series uses crushed brick and the computer controlled milling machine to create wall reliefs.

Tia Erin is an experimental artist living and working in South Dakota. Her work is a reflection of her constant exploration of mediums and motivations. Obtaining her associate degree in Photography from Northwest College in Powell, WY started a journey that led to Spearfish, South Dakota where she would begin her BFA in Photography with an Art Management minor at Black Hills State University. Later adding BFAs in Studio Art and Graphic Design. Being able to work with a flexible modality has led to an eccentric portfolio spanning digital, 3-D, traditional, and alternative process artworks.
Believing in the connection that art can influence, one of her priorities is building community. Moving to Lead, South Dakota in 2020 created a network of artists, educators, facilitators, and supporters of the arts in the Black Hills. In the summer of 2022, she began working with the Matthews Opera House and Lead-Deadwood Art Center to assist with exhibits and community events such as Spearfish Festival in the Park and Lead Live. Looking to the future, Tia is ready to continue her exploration of art in her own studio practices as well as work with her community to host accessible creative environments.
