“The posture and gesture of the human figure as pedestrian or dancer is a focus in my work. Over the year’s bird imagery has been included. Both bird and human behavior expressed in the movement of an arm, wing, tilt of the head, curling of a hand, human foot or bird foot expresses both psychological and physical landscapes,” Deisher said.
Deisher has a master’s degree in Adult and Higher Education from Western Washington University and studied at the Epsom School of Art and Design in England.
“My work comes from a love of drawing. The silhouettes are drawn on, cut and/or folded with black arches and sometimes accompanied by fabrics or simple building materials. They act as companions to the shadows and sculptural elements,” Reid said.
Reid has a master’s of Fine Arts degree from Washington State University and a bachelor’s degree in Studio Painting from Eastern Washington University.
Both have a background in teaching at the college level and have exhibited their work extensively in the Northwest.The exhibit is free and open to the public. Corner Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The exhibit is underwritten by the Citizen’s Council for the Arts (CCA - Art on the Green) and the NIC Art Department.
