‘Subterranean Fragments' to show in the Corner Gallery

Artist Greg Pierce will display his “Subterranean Fragments” artwork in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery at North Idaho College from Oct. 1 to Nov. 1.

Pierce is an assistant professor of art at Columbia Basin College and has a master’s degree in Ceramics from San Diego State University. Pierce’s creations fuse native rock, clay, glaze and other materials into sculptures.

“By emulating geologic processes of landscape formation through fusing local rock with clay and glaze, I find compelling ways to reconstruct the earth’s stratigraphy with the rich histories stored within the ground beneath us,” Pierce said. “Rather than reproduce specific vistas, I distill memories of localities into visual abstractions to engage broader issues and ideas about one’s relationship to both real and imagined place. These fragmentary viewpoints, memories, and detritus of history are composed layer by layer and then revealed by cutting and shaping this reconfigured landscape.”

The gallery walk for the show will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 1. Pierce will give a presentation on his work at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1 in the Edminster Student Union Building Driftwood Bay Room followed by a closing reception from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery.

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