North Idaho College’s Boswell Hall Corner Gallery will feature five established artists from the Northwest during the gallery’s next exhibit Oct. 4 through Nov. 5.

The exhibit is titled “Drawing.” Artists exhibiting their work include Val Carter, Karen Lohrke Kaiser, Jeanette Kirishian, Melissa Lang, and George Wray. All of the individuals included in the exhibit are accomplished studio artists, have extensive teaching experience, and have had solo shows at NIC.

The opening reception is 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at the Corner Gallery located in Boswell Hall at 1000 West Garden Ave., Coeur d’Alene. There will also be a gallery walk on Oct. 5 at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. The “Drawing” exhibit will run from Oct. 4 to Nov. 5. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The artists on their work:

Val Carter: “I am fascinated and drawn to water. To me, the water’s surface is a dividing line between two different worlds."

Karen Lohrke Kaiser: “Some of these pieces were from an exhibit called ‘Rematch’ where I combined old and new fragments, some psychological, and some actual.”

Jeanette Kirishian: “The content and form of these drawings are reliant on three basic resources. Two are visual. One is historic.”

Melissa Lang: “I draw with both paint and charcoal to discover and reveal the complexities between thought and emotion, between the mind and the senses and between observation and imagination.”

George Wray: “The illusion of light and shadow were subjects of my early paintings and drawings. Drawing taught me the importance of learning to see and visualize subjects and or ideas; the first step in changing a mental image into a visual image.”
