'Viewshed: Impressions of Place' Opening Reception 

James Castle House, Wednesday, May 15

In his time, James Castle was considered an outsider artist, his deafness, odd choices of media (spit and soot, to name a few) and unusual lifestyle pushing him to the fringes of society. Now, he's becoming a household name in his home state of Idaho, helped along by his family home, now converted into a museum/exhibition venue/artist-in-residence program space. This Wednesday, May 15, will mark the one-year anniversary of the opening of the James Castle House in Boise, and to celebrate, it will debut a new exhibit called Viewshed: Impressions of Place focused on the shed where Castle lived and worked for three decades. Visitors can check out the original shed alongside work that explores it, and take a step into Idaho's past.
