Jacque Crist of the James Castle Collection and Archive and Kristen Hill, Cultural Sites Program Coordinator with the Boise City Department of Arts and History discuss the James Castle Primer with Idaho Matters on Thursday, November 1, 2018.
The James Castle Primer looks at the life of the reclusive Idaho artist and on Thursday's Idaho Matters we speak with the managing partner of the James Castle Collection and Archive about the book.
The James Castle legacy lives on in the first Artist in Residence.
Idaho Artist James Castle's family home has been turned into a museum, shop and a space for an artist in residence. The first such artist, Keiran Brennan Hinton, moved in in May. We chat with him about observational painting.
RACHEL REICHERT, CULTURAL SIGHTS MANAGER AND KRISTEN HILL, THE CULTURAL SIGHTS PROGRAM COORDINATOR OF THE JAMES CASTLE HOUSE
On Saturday, the City of Boise will open the James Castle House to the public after three years of renovation. The site was home to James Castle for more than half of his life; the hearing-impaired artist was self-taught and used his drawings to communicate with others. In the forty years since his death, his work has been on exhibition around the world and pieces have sold for thousands.
