Louise Kodis: Hanging by a Thread for 40 Years

When: Mondays-Saturdays. Continues through Aug. 19 2017

If you’ve been inside Spokane International Airport’s iconic rotunda since 2010, you’ve seen award-winning Spokane artist Louise Kodis’ deft and colorful handiwork hanging from its concrete beams, suspended in flight. You also might have seen her multimedia and multidimensional art at the Spokane Convention Center, and in many other public spaces around the region. Through most of this summer, the artist known for her colorful and detailed sculptures made from mostly textile materials is featured in a special solo exhibition at Gonzaga University’s Jundt Art Museum, as part of its “Close In” series highlighting regional artists. The 40-year survey of Kodis’ work features packaged proposals for some of her currently displayed public installations, along with independent works she’s created since 1968, including 14 new banners hung throughout the gallery.

Through Aug. 19; Mon-Sat from 10 am-4 pm • Free admission • Jundt Art Museum • 200 E. Desmet • • 313-6611
