Reception: Friday, November 8, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Lecture: Friday, November 8,  6:00 - 7:00 pm

Exhibition: November 8-December 21

Born ca. 1900, James Castle overcame severe disabilities (reputedly deaf

at birth and never learning to speak) to produce sophisticated artworks,

including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and artist books from
everyday materials such as wrapping paper, postal forms, cardboard, yarn

and twine, sticks, and ink made from stove soot and spit. This
exhibition will highlight Castle's art books, particularly his earliest
known surviving artworks, the Icehouse Books, which Castle stored in the

family icehouse that served as the artist's studio/ gallery/ archive/
refuge. This is a rare chance to see Castle’s work en masse--please come

and have a look. This exhibition was organized by Tom Trusky, Director
of the Idaho Center for the Book at the Hemingway Western Studies
Center, Boise State University.

All Center lectures are free and open to the public.
