Featured Artist...Greg Jowyk
Greg is showing his work at Boise St. Luke's through the month of June.
In July it will move to St. Luke's in Meridian on Eagle Road.
May Notes....
Is it as busy as it feels or is it just me?! Maybe after not much happening through the pandemic, it feels like it is so busy.

Two new calls are up:
Summer Souvenirs: Deadline July 2
Play of Light & Shadow: Deadline August 21

There are TVAA Exhibitions to inspire you:
Pale Blue Dot - 4/11-7/12 - Meridian City Library
Sensation - 5/3-9/13 - Nampa Civic Center
Show-Off - 4/27-7/19 - Treasure Chest Gallery

Linda Feinberg is part of the exhibition at Avienne "Visual Voices. Diane Ronayne and Gary Richardson have a show at CW Moore until the end of July. Kerri Silvernell received an Honorable Mention at the Willard Arts Center in Idaho Falls and Greg Jowyk is exhibiting his work at St. Luke's. If you are in McCall from now to the end of July...Mary Arnold's work is at Gallery 55 until June 30 and my birds will be hanging out there through July.

If you have a special exhibit or showing for next month's newsletter let me know. I try to publish the newsletter on or near the 15th of the month.

Thanks so much!

The plan is to offer these engagements and add more as they come to us for Illumibrate. They are building sealife and working on costumes. They also have a digital makers opportunity and plan to add more challenges in the coming months. The goal is to build it back up to the energy level that they experienced in 2018 and 2019.

TVAA Artists Work Hanging Around and Announcements

Linda Feinberg
has two works hanging at Avienne's new exhibition "Vision in Voices", which runs until July 7.
Here are her two pieces:
Noon Peak, acrylic and Jacob's Ladder, calligraphy


746 Santa Paula Ct., Boise ID 83712

208-685-9807 (Diane cell);

DATE:     June 13, 2022


Two longtime Boise artists share their views of the world in a two-person exhibit currently on display at the CW Moore Plaza lobby, 250 S. 5th St., Boise. This is the second two-person show for the couple. They will be present on First Thursday, July 7, from 4pm-6pm to answer questions. All artwork is for sale by the artists.


DIANE RONAYNE, a founder of the Idaho Photographic Workshop, reveals a new series, photographed in downtown Boise over the past three years, entitled “Yesterday, Today and… Tomorrow?”  GARY RICHARDSON offers his take on places as varied as Vietnam, Mexico, Taos, Portland and Death Valley. Their work is in the lobby of the office building, open 8am-6pm weekdays. Free parking.

“When I walk around downtown Boise, my eye is always drawn upward,” DIANE RONAYNE says. “The contrasts in buildings’ age, color, texture, shape and size call out, ‘Shoot me! Shoot me!’ Some have stood for 100 years, others are still going up. They coexist, like the people using them: Some of us have lived here all our lives, others just since COVID. Buildings embody continuity and change, the one eternal constant. Change stimulates and disturbs – it’s a reality we must acknowledge. This work demonstrates the complexity and, yes, the beauty that can result from the interaction of past and present, newcomer and old hand. ‘Tomorrow?’ in this show title is symbolized by abstracts I create from the original image.”

Ronayne chose Boise for her home in 1980. A professional writer/editor/photographer, she also expresses herself creatively through photography. The first photographic artist to receive a Boise City public art commission (“Waterworks,” 2004), she has been a member of the Treasure Valley Artists Alliance since 2009. Her photographic art has been exhibited in Colorado, Wyoming and Idaho, and is in private collections. 

GARY RICHARDSON has been capturing light in boxes since he was given a Kodak Brownie camera when he was seven years old. “In recent years, like many photographers, I have been fascinated with the enhanced capabilities of digital technology to render light so as to emphasize specific visual elements created as the momentary presence of each photon is recorded electronically. Once recorded, those data may be displayed in many ways.”
Kerri Silvernell
At the 14th Annual Nation Juried Exhibition, Idaho Falls Arts Council at the Willard Arts Center Kerri exhibited her painting "South Fork Payette River At Granjean" which can be seen on her website:
She received an honorable mention and sold it!!!
