The of Idaho State University Eli M. Oboler Library is exhibiting the artwork Catherine Reinhardt, graduate student in the ISU Department of Art, through May 31.
Reinhardt, who will graduate in May, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Auburn University in Alabama and a master's degree in teaching from the University of Virginia. A native of Alabama, Reinhardt lives in Pocatello with her husband and son.
Reinhardt’s prints, paintings, and mixed media works explore the entangled notions of identity, place and home as the complex product of our rational and spiritual understanding of our world. The works included in this exhibit aim to transform the transient moments and emotions of our spiritual selves into visuals that can be weighed equally with the charts and diagrams that represent the scientific.
In these works, vibrant colors, imagery of home and the natural world are juxtaposed with the diagrams, charts, and trappings of the scientific, in an attempt to present the complexity of experience.
The exhibit is free and open to the public and may be viewed during regular library hours now through the end of May. For library hours please call 282-2958. The artist may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
