“We have a host of traveling exhibitions, but this is only the second time we have had an exhibition this large curated out of our permanent collection and sent to another museum,” said Rebecca Engelhardt, collections and exhibitions manager at the Museum of Glass. “The first was to the National Glass Center in the U.K.”
An artist can encounter tough obstacles when putting brush to canvas. But plein air painter Cory Trépanier’s challenges rise to another level altogether. For the past decade Trépanier, 50, lugged a backpack laden with easel, oils and camping gear to capture the beauty of the most remote regions of the Canadian Arctic. The artist, based in southern Ontario, ventured for months at a time into the wilderness, encountering hungry wolves and swarms of biting mosquitoes. He braved treacherous waters and bone-chilling temperatures.
The exhibition and reading, “Story & Image: Illustration in the Inland Northwest,” will feature images and scenes rendered to depict Shields’ short story “Witch Lake.” The dark tale of sexual abuse and feminist power first appeared in The Spokesman-Review’s Summer Stories series in 2016.
There are more than 35 venues and 200 artists – including actors, poets, filmmakers, painters, photographers, ceramicists, sculptors, fiber artists, and musicians – participating this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Winner of HGTV’s latest Dream Home will also win a piece form Coeur d’Alene artist Chase Halland.
