Spokane artist to exhibit work in NIC's Corner Gallery
Spokane artist Tom Dukich will display his multimedia work in an exhibit titled “Seeing with My Brain” Nov. 6 through Dec. 8 in the North Idaho College Boswell Hall Corner Gallery.
According to Dukich, the exhibit includes pieces that are “based on normally disposable items and occurrences that just seemed too interesting to throw away or let pass without comment.”
“My art is a place where all the stuff I’m interested in can come together in one place: aspects of visual art, sound and music, psychology, perception, statistics, science, technology and contemporary culture,” Dukich said. “The common thread is that I think there’s a beauty in the way things work—in the way both living and nonliving things behave. Observing and documenting these things connects me to both the natural, and just as importantly, the human-built world. In terms of media, I like to have the idea itself dictate the medium rather than the reverse.”
Dukich holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and business from the University of Minnesota and a master’s degree in general psychology and a Ph.D. in experimental psychology from the from the University of Montana. He has also taken numerous classes in figure drawing and painting from the Spokane Art School.
Dukich was born in Minnesota and has lived in Spokane since 1971.
His work has been displayed at the Peel Gallery in Houston, Texas, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, the Spokane Art School Huneke Gallery and the Gellhorn Gallery in Spokane.
The opening reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7 in the gallery. A gallery walk with the artist will be held at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 7 followed by a slide lecture/video presentation at 1 p.m. in Boswell Hall Room 102.
Corner Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
