One of the Northwest’s most respected fine art galleries, Coeur d’Alene’s Art Spirit, has a new artist on its roster with the arrival of internationally rising pop artist Byron Buchanan to the Lake City. The self-taught artist’s portraits of Hollywood icons (Monroe, Cash, Jagger) grace many modern celebrities’ homes, but as visitors will see during his first Northwest show, there’s more than meets the eye. Delving deep into the lives of his subjects, Buchanan incorporates photos, torn pages, newspaper clippings and more into a massive collage over which he paints their likenesses. Alongside Buchanan’s work, gallery owner and curator Steve Gibbs also has selected pieces from the Art Spirit’s massive basement art archives.
