[BKARTS] James Castle Lecture



"The Life of James Castle* Sunday, April 22, 2 pm at Holter Museum,
Helena, MT

Tom Trusky, curator of James Castle: From Icehouse to Early Attic, will
present a lively talk on the life of James Castle on Sunday, April 22,
at 2 pm, at the Holter Museum. Castle's work has been on exhibit at the
Holter since January. The exhibition, organized by Trusky and the Idaho
Center for the Book, closes on April 22. 

Trusky, Director of the Hemingway Western Studies Center and Professor
of English at Boise State University, has studied James Castle for many
years. Trusky is the leading authority on the life of this
internationally renowned self-taught Idaho artist who lived from
1899-1977. Tom has recently learned new information about Castle's life
that he is very excited about--and the Holter audience will be the first
to hear Tom share these stories.

"Whatever his motivations or inspirations, Castle labored ceaselessly
for over sixty years, struggling to record his surroundings, to convey
his messages, to create his hauntingly beautiful and original
visions...." Trusky comments.
