Welcome new Posting: Lewis-Clark State College

It's always nice (and refreshing) to know someone is actually reading this blog so when I got an email from Lewis-Clark State College about an upcoming exhibit, my first reaction was "They have a gallery?" and then, "Sure! We'll hook you up."

Their link is added to the Links portion of this blog, but you can just mark your calendar now for the upcoming Chinese Remembering Project, whichwill open with a reception on June 4, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Seventh Avenue Gallery in Lewiston and run from June 4 to July 16.

The exhibit will feature Chinese artifacts from the Historical Museum at St. Gertrude’s in Cottonwood, ID, and the LCSC Center’s Beuk Aie Temple Collection. Alongside the historical narrative of the Chinese Remembering Project, artist Sarah Gilbert will present her work on memory. Gilbert’s work speaks eloquently through the medium of glass and found objects about the nature of loss and employs the sublime as a metaphor for healing.

The Chinese Remembering Project coincides with the third and final Chinese Remembering Conference, which brings together scholars, teachers and the public. This year’s conference specifically highlights the influence of the early Chinese and the contributions they made to Idaho and the Pacific Northwest. The conference will be held in Lewiston, ID, on June 24-25, 2010.

Admission to the Chinese Remembering Project featuring Sarah Gilbert’s work, will be open to the public, free of charge, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays at the Center for Arts & History.

The Chinese Remembering Project is made possible by the Office of Community Programs at Lewis-Clark State College and by a grant from US Bancorp.

The Mission of the LCSC Center for Arts & History is to educate and engage community in an appreciation of culture, history and arts.  For more information please visit our website at www.lcsc.edu/museum or call 208.792.2243.
