"Jazz is Dead" to show in the Corner Gallery

 

Spokane artist Bradd Skubinna will display his artwork at the “Jazz is Dead” exhibit in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery at North Idaho College from February 16 to March 27.

 

Skubinna will host a gallery walk of his work at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 17, followed by a panel conversation at 1:00 p.m. in the Meyer Health and Sciences Building Room 102, and the opening reception from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.in the Boswell Hall Corner Gallery.

 

“My work may consist of drawings, collages, assemblages, objects, and installations. There may be objects arranged on the gallery floor. Once I made some art using carbon paper,” said Skubinna in his artist statement. “Sometimes music is an underlying idea. Sometimes I reference artists whose work I admire. Sometimes I reference personal remembrances, obliquely. I enjoy a good title, though I do not claim to be adept at choosing them. I have a problematic relationship to content, otherwise known as meaning. Arranging things can be fun. And satisfying. Sometimes things are too controlled. That can be bothersome.”

Spokane Arts Fund, in partnership with the Gold Star Families, the City of Spokane, and the Spokane Public Facilities District seeks an artist, or artist team residing in Washington and Idaho, to develop a memorial honoring fallen heroes that have served post- 9/11.

The artist will work with Spokane Arts Fund, the Gold Star Families and the Spokane Public Facilities District to develop a permanent public art memorial for the Spokane Arena. The desired artistic approach will create a sculptural plaza that suggests a place where people will gather for a variety of observances and events. The artwork should represent and be inclusive of all Armed Services with particular attention to post 9/11 fallen heroes.
