Contemporary wood art on display in gallery

Artist Talk: With the Grain, Spotlight Artist Kristin LeVier


Kristin LeVier will talk about the pathway that led her from science to studio art and introduce us to her biology- and nature-inspired organic sculpture. As a working artist for over 13 years, she has learned to be a creative entrepreneur, and will discuss the techniques and systems she uses to work most efficiently, successfully and happily.

Kristin LeVier is a former molecular biologist-turned-studio artist who creates contemporary sculpture at the intersection of art and science. She uses furniture making techniques to create wood sculptures that appear to undulate as if propelled by water currents or wind. Her work has been exhibited widely and featured in books and magazines such as American Craft, American Woodturner and A Gathering of Spoons: The Design Gallery of the World’s Most Stunning Wooden Art Spoons. LeVier has received awards and fellowships from the Society for Contemporary Craft, the Clark Hulings Fund, the American Association of Woodturners, NICHE, and the Idaho Commission for the Arts. She lives in Moscow, Idaho.
