Chris Binion

Hosted by the Boise City Department of Arts & History (A&H) at the James Castle House, Creators, Makers, & Doers: Live is a series of informal talks focusing on the creative processes and studio practices of artists. Developed in the spirit of A&H's mission, the series is motivated to explore the lives and work of artists and ignite conversation around creativity in Boise.

This month, join painter Chris Binion. Originally from Texas, Chris' inspirations include everything from the old masters to his contemporaries, and he often uses objects from his personal collection as focal points of his work. Chris works in a variety of mediums including oil, watercolor, and collaborative sculpture. Chris' paintings have been exhibited in a number of Idaho galleries and can be found in important private and corporate collections throughout the United States. In 1997, he was awarded a Fellowship for Excellence in the Arts from the Idaho Commission on the Arts. Chris has been featured in several publications such as The Idaho Statesman, The Times-News, Boise Weekly, and Idaho Business Review. In 2007, Binion was commissioned to design the Holy Cross Chapel by Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. He was a co-founder of the artist collective Enso Artspace. He currently exhibits in Boise, Idaho where he lives.
