Facts, Fiction and Lies

Treasure Valley Artists’ Alliance

November 18, 2018 – January 6, 2019

Facts, Fiction and Lies exhibits an interdisciplinary collection of visual art and storytelling pairs by artists from The Treasure Valley Artists’ Alliance. Juried by Christian Winn, Idaho Writer in Residence, the works show the culminating efforts of 21 artists who attended a writing workshop taught by Winn to develop their narratives, including essays, anecdotes, fables, and fairytales. A dramatic reading of select stories will be presented at the reception by Theater Arts major, Marley Snow-King. This exhibition was partially funded by The Idaho Commission of the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Apathetic Adoration

Kristen Mollner and Michael Kay Smith

November 4- December 16, 2018

Apathetic Adoration illustrates the modernity of relationships some seek and the semiotic codes embedded in lived relationships. Kristen Mollner and Michael Kay Smith look to their own romantic relations—as sporadic as perhaps steady—for a consistent source of conversation and connection. Mollner is actively searching for love, while Smith is a woman involved in marriage. Though their viewpoints manifest in unique and/or appropriated styles, each artist seeks to answer for herself: “How does a relationship happen, and how does it continue to exist?” In their illustrations, Mollner and Smith, with jest and joy for life, share their depictions of love and all that each path entails.
