Featured Event

Stephanie Wilde: Introspective

Art Show

Idaho-based artist Stephanie Wilde is known for her lavish, intricate works addressing global contemporary issues and societal concerns. Her images portray a quiet and gentle aesthetic, developed from an interior narrative and drawn from a range of literary, historical, and scientific sources. The hidden power of Wilde’s work lies in the way these elaborate motifs intensify her perspective on the persistent human issues that overwhelm us – prejudice, greed, fear, grief, and death. Each narrative tells a story of our human struggle, while sharing our continuing desire for beauty and compassion. This selective retrospective highlights Wilde’s artistic practice, spanning over four decades. Selections from her series of work explore subjects such as the AIDS epidemic in the US and Africa, climate change and its effect on the western honey bee, corporate greed, and social polarization.

Other Upcoming Events

Ceramics and Textiles from the Southwest

Ceramics/Pottery,Textiles

oise natives Joan H. and John B. Carley spent twenty years wintering in the Southwest. Their love of the region and the various cultures represented there led them to begin collecting art by Native American artists. They eventually amassed a collection of more than sixty-five objects, including ceramics, sculptures, and textiles. In 2016, the Carleys generously gifted their collection to the Boise Art Museum. The collection consists of artworks by Apache, Choctaw, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, Tohono O’odham, and Wyandot artists. Highlights include an early twentieth-century jar from the Acoma Pueblo, a series of black vessels by acclaimed San Ildefonso Pueblo artist Maria Martinez, several storyteller figures from Cochiti Pueblo artists, and various intricately patterned Navajo wool rugs.

Margaret Jacobs celebrates Indigenous culture with a bold, powerful aesthetic. Her steel sculptures depict medicinal plants alongside tools associated with early twentieth-century Mohawk Ironworkers. In this unique coupling, Jacobs explores the tension and harmony between forces of nature and forces of man, addressing ideas such as natural cycles of decay and growth. Drawing on her metalsmithing techniques as a jeweler, Jacobs uses stark lines, organic forms, and intricate links of steel to emphasize the resilience and fragility of nature. Her Steel Medicine and Survival Medicine series are on view, as well as new artwork created especially for this exhibition at the Boise Art Museum.

oise natives Joan H. and John B. Carley spent twenty years wintering in the Southwest. Their love of the region and the various cultures represented there led them to begin collecting art by Native American artists. They eventually amassed a collection of more than sixty-five objects, including ceramics, sculptures, and textiles. In 2016, the Carleys generously gifted their collection to the Boise Art Museum. The collection consists of artworks by Apache, Choctaw, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, Tohono O’odham, and Wyandot artists. Highlights include an early twentieth-century jar from the Acoma Pueblo, a series of black vessels by acclaimed San Ildefonso Pueblo artist Maria Martinez, several storyteller figures from Cochiti Pueblo artists, and various intricately patterned Navajo wool rugs.

Ceramics and Textiles from the Southwest

Ceramics/Pottery,Textiles

oise natives Joan H. and John B. Carley spent twenty years wintering in the Southwest. Their love of the region and the various cultures represented there led them to begin collecting art by Native American artists. They eventually amassed a collection of more than sixty-five objects, including ceramics, sculptures, and textiles. In 2016, the Carleys generously gifted their collection to the Boise Art Museum. The collection consists of artworks by Apache, Choctaw, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, Tohono O’odham, and Wyandot artists. Highlights include an early twentieth-century jar from the Acoma Pueblo, a series of black vessels by acclaimed San Ildefonso Pueblo artist Maria Martinez, several storyteller figures from Cochiti Pueblo artists, and various intricately patterned Navajo wool rugs.

Margaret Jacobs: Steel Medicine

Sculpture

Margaret Jacobs celebrates Indigenous culture with a bold, powerful aesthetic. Her steel sculptures depict medicinal plants alongside tools associated with early twentieth-century Mohawk Ironworkers. In this unique coupling, Jacobs explores the tension and harmony between forces of nature and forces of man, addressing ideas such as natural cycles of decay and growth. Drawing on her metalsmithing techniques as a jeweler, Jacobs uses stark lines, organic forms, and intricate links of steel to emphasize the resilience and fragility of nature. Her Steel Medicine and Survival Medicine series are on view, as well as new artwork created especially for this exhibition at the Boise Art Museum.

Wally Dion: Current

Mixed Media,Textiles

Mixing the contemporary with the traditional, Wally Dion uses materials such as circuit boards and auto paint to create his own renditions of Indigenous quilt patterns. Dion’s quilt assemblages are an extension of his portraiture of First Nations workers, and serve as a way to represent those who work in fields such as childcare, education, software and information management, and communications. Dion draws inspiration from artists such as Indigenous Canadian painter Bob Boyer, and quilting bees during which First Nations women historically gathered to make quilts for burials, dances, and other ceremonies. This exhibition features three of Dion’s quilts.

Ceramics and Textiles from the Southwest

Ceramics/Pottery,Textiles

oise natives Joan H. and John B. Carley spent twenty years wintering in the Southwest. Their love of the region and the various cultures represented there led them to begin collecting art by Native American artists. They eventually amassed a collection of more than sixty-five objects, including ceramics, sculptures, and textiles. In 2016, the Carleys generously gifted their collection to the Boise Art Museum. The collection consists of artworks by Apache, Choctaw, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, Tohono O’odham, and Wyandot artists. Highlights include an early twentieth-century jar from the Acoma Pueblo, a series of black vessels by acclaimed San Ildefonso Pueblo artist Maria Martinez, several storyteller figures from Cochiti Pueblo artists, and various intricately patterned Navajo wool rugs.

Margaret Jacobs: Steel Medicine

Sculpture

Margaret Jacobs celebrates Indigenous culture with a bold, powerful aesthetic. Her steel sculptures depict medicinal plants alongside tools associated with early twentieth-century Mohawk Ironworkers. In this unique coupling, Jacobs explores the tension and harmony between forces of nature and forces of man, addressing ideas such as natural cycles of decay and growth. Drawing on her metalsmithing techniques as a jeweler, Jacobs uses stark lines, organic forms, and intricate links of steel to emphasize the resilience and fragility of nature. Her Steel Medicine and Survival Medicine series are on view, as well as new artwork created especially for this exhibition at the Boise Art Museum.
