Consider the Source  - Following Weather or Not and Tall Tales, this is the third exhibition in a series based on the Boise Art Museum’s Art Cards. These exhibitions are the result of a unique collaboration between the Museum’s curators and educators and have been thoughtfully designed to foster art appreciation and learning. Many of the works in this exhibition were included in the set of BAM Art Cards called In Your Element and were chosen for their connection to the elements of earth, air, fire, or water. Expanding on this concept, the exhibition looks at the physical elements used to create works of art, whether man-made or naturally occurring. Exploring the idea of materiality, Consider the Source presents an original arrangement of works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Artists have created the works using substances as diverse as clay, fiber, gelatin silver, glass, graphite, ink, metal, paper, pigment, polymer, stone, and wood. Materiality is an essential component of the creative process and determines how artists execute their works. Viewers are invited to spend time looking closely at the artworks to decipher how and why the artists have employed particular materials.

Jo Hamilton: Knots in Time  - Fiber artist Jo Hamilton moved to Portland after graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Although educated as a painter, she eventually began to explore the representational possibilities of crochet. She depicts the urban fabric of Portland and its people, using traditional materials such as yarn, as well as alternative materials such as plastic and parachute cord. Hamilton learned to crochet from her grandmother, and the link between craft and human relationships pervades her work. Her portraits and cityscapes stem as much from the traditional handicrafts passed down to her by her grandmother as from her training in fine arts. By combining the traditions of crochet and academic painting, Hamilton’s work draws viewers into a world in which looking, knowing, and making are bound together. Rather than working from patterns, Hamilton achieves her likenesses by knotting, unraveling, and re-knotting her compositions until securing accurate representations of her subjects. This attention to detail, combined with her unusual choice of materials, imbues even Hamilton’s large-scale works with a surprising warmth and familiarity, whether of the sprawling urban environment or its residents. Jo Hamilton: Knots in Time includes intimate portraits of the artist’s friends and family alongside a series of portraits based on mug shots from Multnomah County. The exhibition also highlights several of Hamilton’s expansive cityscapes that provide a commentary on Portland’s development boom.
