Spokane artist to exhibit work in NIC's Corner Gallery
Spokane artist Robin Dare will display his drawings, prints and paintings in an exhibit titled “A Retrospective” Jan. 29 through Feb. 23 in the North Idaho College Boswell Hall Corner Gallery.
Dare holds a master’s degree in fine art, specifically printmaking and drawing, from Washington State University as well as a bachelor’s degree in fine art from Eastern Washington University.
Dare is affiliated with the Northwest Print Council in Portland, Ore., and the Artists Market of Norwalk, Conn.
He most recently exhibited his work in a solo exhibition at the Kolva-Sullivan Gallery in Spokane and in the three-artist invitational “Drawn to Scale,” which was co-curated by Spokane Falls Community College and California State University Northridge.
“I always seem to get a slight feeling of ‘why?’ when asked to write about my work,” Dare wrote in an artist’s statement. “The reaction of ‘why?’ might simply define my attitude as being somewhat lazy when it comes to such as task.
“I could say something like: ‘Although I am not a finger painter, the metaphorical resonance of my work can visually and conceptually activate the spatial relationships to Egyptian motifs and of the larger carcass…’ Huh? See what happens when I go to work? The truth is, I love making art and I am delighted to have this opportunity to exhibit at North Idaho College.”
The opening reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30 in the gallery. A gallery walk with the artist will be held at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 30 followed by a slide lecture presentation at 1 p.m. in Boswell Hall Room 102.
Corner Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
