ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Michael Horswill, Hayden Lake

Michael Horswill’s relief sculptures combine a wide range of materials that integrate antique machinery parts, glass, and metal with natural materials like beeswax and leather. He has been an active artist in the region for more than 20 and has created numerous public art pieces in the area, including large-scale public art for Coeur d’Alene’s educational corridor and the Hayden Public Library. Horswill is a full-time instructor of art at North Idaho College and earned his Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Idaho.

Allen and Mary Dee Dodge, Coeur d’Alene

Allen and Mary Dee Dodge have been active in the Coeur d’Alene art scene for over 40 years. For this exhibition, the couple has created over 70 new pieces – both individually and collectively, including large welded steel sculpture, abstract and whimsically representational enamel wall pieces, and smaller painted metal sculpture that will engage and amuse viewers. The artists’ public art pieces – large metal sculpture, utility boxes, bike racks, collaborative murals, and more - saturate the greater Coeur d’Alene area. The two met and married while attending the Kansas City Art Institute. Mary Dee graduated with a degree in ceramics and Allen in painting and sculpture.
