Artists Justin Gibbens and Renee Adams will exhibit their artwork entitled “Weird Science” in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery at North Idaho College from Nov. 15 to Feb. 3.

Gibbens and Adams will host a gallery walk of their work at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, 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.

“Thirty-some odd years ago when I first began moving graphite on paper, I was rendering the childhood standards: dinosaurs, creepy crawlers and other freakish fauna,” Gibbens said. “Not much has changed in three decades. I credit my work to countless hours spent watching David Attenborough documentaries, innumerable trips to natural history museums, and above all, a keen and unhealthy interest in all things that scamper and poke about in the undergrowth, slither in the thickets, soar through the ether and swim in the infinite abyss of our planet’s aquatic environments.”

Inspired by the flora and fauna that surrounds her home in the small, unincorporated town of Thorp, Wash., Adams creates delicate mixed-media sculptures and small-scale egg tempera paintings. As a founding member of PUNCH Gallery, an artist-run space in downtown Seattle, she keeps active in her regional art scene. Renee received her bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in metalsmithing from Colorado State University then continued her studies in sculpture, receiving her master’s degree of Fine Arts from Central Washington University.

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.
