‘Saints and Stuffies' to show in the Corner Gallery


Contemporary artist Ann Porter will display her artwork at the “Saints and Stuffies” exhibit in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery at North Idaho College from Sept. 6 to Nov. 4.

Porter will host a gallery walk of her work at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, followed by a slide lecture at 1 p.m. in Boswell Hall Room 146, and an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery.

“Lately I have been drawing plush toys in charcoal. I like the charcoal—its history begins when human image-making begins. It speaks of memory even if we don’t reference Paleolithic cave paintings,” Porter said. “If we remember only as far back as smudgy black and white family photos, charcoal suggests the passage of time: it has weight, it has value, it has intimacy.”

Porter divides her time between North Idaho and western South Dakota, where she is a professor in the Art Department at Black Hills State University. She began teaching at BHSU in the fall of 2003. She has taught a broad range of classes, from Art History to Sculpture to Drawing to Art and Technology. 

The Corner Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday. Admission to the gallery is free.

Information: (208) 769-3427.
