Featured Artist: Astri Snodgrass, At the Mouth of the Labyrinth

Gallery Cushing Terrell presents “At the Mouth of the Labyrinth,” a solo exhibition of sculptural works on paper by artist Astri Snodgrass. Using drawing, handspinning, and handwriting, Snodgrass explores themes of impermanence and embodiment in a colorful visual language. The exhibition is informed by the artist’s interests in translation, etymology, and textile history.

Born in Illinois, Astri Snodgrass draws from her Norwegian heritage in language-learning and family traditions in handmade textiles. Trained in drawing and painting, the artist works experimentally across media, such as spinning paper into yarn by hand. She says, “I treat each medium I work with as its own language, with its own grammar and poetics.”

Astri Snodgrass is an associate professor of drawing and painting at Boise State University. Her work has been shown nationally in solo and group exhibitions. She has been an artist in residence at Vermont Studio Center, Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences, and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, among others.

How it All Began

The idea of hosting gallery space in the Boise arm of our architecture and engineering firm was born during the programming phase for our new offices. We facilitated multiple sessions, asking Cushing Terrell colleagues: “What is important to you regarding your working environment?” We focused on three areas: the physical environment, culture, and an “anything goes” wishlist.

Through this process, we learned the arts and a connection to the community were among top priorities. Rather than showcasing our own work, we decided to highlight pieces from accomplished artists within our region. Our overarching goal: to inspire the public to visit our office and give artists the opportunity to display their work. We encourage featured artists to be innovative and exploratory — mirroring the culture we enjoy at Cushing Terrell.

Our firm commissioned Gallery Cushing Terrell’s first exhibitor, Cody Rutty, for a piece that still hangs in Boise’s main conference room.
