Across the country, ancient grains such as heritage wheat, oats, and millet are enjoying a revival.
For its July exhibition, The Art Spirit Gallery celebrates this revival by highlighting work of artists Katherine Nelson, Jeri and Mark Lisk, and A.L. Swanson, all of whom share passion for the abundant natural beauty of the Northwest, especially that surrounding the fields of the Palouse. According to Nelson, who has studied this movement extensively, “The grain revival inspires an interdependent creative network which is driving both menus and economic possibilities. These interdependent artisanal connections between farmers, millers, bakers, brewers, and distillers are in fact, weaving people together quite like a carpet.”
The opening reception is July 13 from 5-8 in conjunction with ArtWalk, brought to the community by the Coeur d’Alene Arts and Culture Alliance. For this exhibition, The Art Spirit Gallery thanks Lewis – Clark State College – Coeur d’Alene for its sponsorship and support of the arts.
