Current Exhibit

Margaret Noble Marquee Margaret Noble: Resonating Objects opens November 2 with a reception starting at 5:30 p.m. in the main floor galleries. The exhibit runs through December 15 at Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History, located at 415 Main Street in Lewiston.

Resonating Objects is an interactive and multi-sensory exhibit with sculptures and installations layered in sound and gesture. Margaret Noble designs these works with recycled objects, raw materials, and circuitry. Noble uses tactile controls to integrate light, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings into her projects. The materials she integrates have their own unique narratives but accrue new meanings when combined. Through this hybrid medium, Noble’s work explores human and material relationships modulated by technology. Noble will provide an artist tour of the installation on Saturday, November 3 at 1 p.m. at the Center.

Born in Texas and raised in California, Margaret Noble’s experimental artworks have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her interdisciplinary work resides at the intersection of sound, sculpture, installation and performance. She holds a BA in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego and an MFA in Sound Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Noble’s work has been featured on KPBS, PRI, Art Ltd Magazine, Art Forum, San Francisco Weekly and the Washington Post. She was awarded the International Governor’s Grant, the Hayward Prize and the Creative Catalyst Fellowship. Her artistic residencies include the MAK Museum in Vienna and the Salzburg Academy of Fine Art. She has had several solo exhibitions including the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Ohrenhoch der Geräuschladen Sound Gallery in Berlin, and Mute Gallery in Portugal.

The exhibit is brought to the community through grant funding from ARTSIdaho and US Bank.
