Artist James Blackburn Craig’s exhibit “Experiences and Recollections” will be featured in the North Idaho College Boswell Hall Corner Gallery Nov. 14 to Feb. 2.
The exhibit includes acrylic painted wall constructions, high-relief painted surfaces, bas-relief painted surfaces and various mediums for sculptures.
“The free-standing work reflects my interest in the cultural dynamics of this country based on observation and the news,” Craig said. “The vehicle for expression is carved forms and the use of ‘found’ objects (cultural artifacts and natural objects assembled together).”
From Kennewick, Wash., Craig has exhibited his work in the Dalles Art Center & Gallery, the Artworks Gallery in Seattle, the Gallery of Visual Arts in Missoula, Mont., and many more galleries since the early 1970s. He has a master’s degree from Florida Atlantic University and has taught at several universities and colleges throughout his career.
Rather than an opening reception, special events are scheduled at the closing of this exhibit. The gallery walk will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 2 with the presentation for the exhibit at 1 p.m. in Molstead Library Todd Hall and the closing reception from 5 to 7 p.m. the same day in the Corner Gallery.The Corner Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission to the gallery is free.
