Born in Garden Valley, Idaho, James Castle (1899-1977) created exceptional artworks throughout his lifetime. This exhibition brings together a carefully chosen selection of landscape drawings that demonstrate the nuance and grace of Castle’s strongest work. In James Castle’s landscapes a fluid relationship between observation and invention is evident. Scale, composition, and perspective play very intentional roles, quite far from naive or arbitrary. Castle’s formidable drawing talent comes through in scenes that are familiar yet otherworldly, beautiful and peculiar, discernibly handmade yet sophisticated. This is the second show in Lawrence Markey's new space located at Pearl, in the Full Goods building. Exhibit opening Oct. 28, 6pm-8pm, Gallery open Tue-Fri, 9am-5pm. Exhibit runs through Dec. 2.
