Boise State's art department faculty exhibition
by Christopher Schnoor
Kirsten Furlong, the director of Boise State's Visual Arts Center, has a piece in the current art department faculty exhibit which should have been the cover for the event's mailer. Called Collection, it is a glistening composite of imposing insects, spiders and arthropods, suspended in a thick resin and set in a deep frame like a box of macabre chocolates. Its creepiness only serves to intensify its dark, bizarre beauty, but beyond that, her piece epitomizes the specimen-like nature of many of the works on view.
