[BKARTS] Book Exhibitions in Montana
TWO IDAHO CENTER FOR THE BOOK EXHIBITIONS ON DISPLAY AT THE MISSOULA ART MUSEUM
Two exhibitions sponsored by the Idaho Center for the Book at Boise State University will be on display at the Missoula Art Museum. ?James Castle: From Icehouse Unto Early Attic? and ?Silver Lining: Pass Mine Artists? Books? will be on display from Nov. 15-Jan. 12.
The Castle exhibition features books and art by the Idaho artist and bookmaker. Castle, a lifelong Idahoan who was most likely autistic, was self-taught. ?Icehouse Unto Early Attic? features rare, early Castle works discovered in an icehouse in Garden Valley, Idaho, including soot-and-saliva drawings created with a stick or twig pen.
?Silver Lining? displays bookworks inspired by, and artifacts related to, a silver mine near Hailey, Idaho, that was bequeathed to Boise State. Boise State students created the ten unique, handmade books.
Boise State professor Tom Trusky, who is the curator of both exhibitions, will give opening addresses and walk-through lectures. For further information on his lectures or the exhibitions, contact Stephen Glueckert of the Missoula Art Museum at (406) 728-0447 or stevegl@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, or Trusky at ttrusky@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
