Guest Curator Statement: My goal or overarching idea behind this show was to curate works that were/are fairly monochromatic with splashes of color here and there. Why monochromatic you ask? Perhaps because it is raw and does not create distractions due to the muted, controlled tones. It is easy on the eyes and allows one to obtain the true essence of the piece/pieces. When choosing the works for the show I was constantly drawn towards pieces that had content of a primitive nature, and those that were produced with raw, natural materials.
Mason Miles was the curator for The Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and now works as a graphic designer for a company called Foxy Fix in Post Falls. Born and raised in Boise, Idaho, Miles has called Coeur d’Alene home for three years. With a passion and eye for curation, he studied under the late Steve Gibbs, founder of The Art Spirit Gallery, and assumed the role of gallery curator after Steve’s passing in 2016. Miles has curated numerous solo exhibitions by well-known area artists such as Harold Balazs, Del Gish, and Mel McCuddin. His largest – and most challenging – exhibition included 196 pieces by 196 separate artists for The Art Spirit Gallery’s 20th anniversary celebrated in July of 2017. Miles also curates various downtown Coeur d’Alene businesses, carefully selecting works to match the style and space of each establishment. For the 2017 Coeur d’Alene Parade of Homes sponsored by the North Idaho Building Contractors, he was recruited by area designers to curate three homes on the tour. In his spare time, Miles enrolls in art classes at North Idaho College to further his knowledge in the full spectrum of various mediums.
The three artists selected by our guest curator, Mason Miles are as follow:
1st Eric Rannestad, 2nd John Yerden, and 3rd Erik Sullivan.
