An Intentional Eye: Select Gifts from Wilfred Davis Fletcher

Art Show
Wilfred Davis Fletcher (1922 – 2016), a third-generation Idahoan and long-time friend and supporter of the Boise Art Museum, had an inspired collecting vision. Unconstrained by conventional collecting practices and the whims of the art market, he enjoyed discovering new facets of an artist’s work. His unique eye and open-mindedness led him to collect artworks across a variety of media—including ceramics, drawings, glass works, paintings, prints, and sculptures. Mr. Fletcher understood the distinctive allure of collecting, and continued to purchase art until his final days. We celebrate his life and his passion for collecting with this special exhibition, which features artworks from his recently received bequest alongside earlier gifts, all of which he lived with and loved for many years. The works in this exhibition demonstrate his commitment to supporting modern and contemporary American art and artists. Mr. Fletcher donated his first gift—a small graphite drawing by Maynard Dixon—to the Museum in 1984. In the years since then, he has made seventeen additional donations to the Museum, totaling nearly 600 works of art. His incredible generosity has significantly shaped the Museum’s Permanent Collection of approximately 4,000 objects, by introducing artworks by prominent artists who were previously unrepresented. The Permanent Collection is at the heart of what we do at the Boise Art Museum. We are fortunate to have a strong body of artwork from which to draw for exhibitions and educational programs. The Museum is grateful to Mr. Fletcher and proud to have collaborated with him to benefit our community for generations to come.

Heather Carson: Sculpted Light

Sculpture
As a Los Angeles native who has spent many years in New York, artist Heather Carson is influenced by both the west coast light and space movement and east coast minimalism. Using especially fabricated industrial materials to make her architecturally scaled light sculptures, she draws inspiration from artists such as Dan Flavin and Robert Irwin. Her understated sculptures are equally informed by the work of painters such as Josef Albers and Agnes Martin.

Construction, Deconstruction, and Abstraction: The Art of James Castle

Art Show, Drawings/Works on Paper
Since first displaying his art in 1963, the Boise Art Museum has been committed to exhibiting, collecting, and preserving the work of Idaho artist James Castle (1899-1977). His artwork is regularly featured in Permanent Collection exhibitions, and this is the tenth solo show of the artist’s work at the Museum. Through gifts and purchases, BAM now has the largest museum collection of Castle’s artwork. Although he never received formal artistic training, Castle’s artwork presents a sophisticated approach to varied interpretations of his surroundings. Many of the compositions are accurate depictions of his environment that reveal his understanding of space and ability to correctly render perspective and proportion. Others are more subtle and dreamlike—stylized readings of the world around him. Still others are completely abstract configurations that give insight into the artist’s rich imagination.

Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art

Art Show
"Cercle et Carré" offers a new and insightful look at modernism in interwar Europe. The exhibition focuses on the influential but short-lived artistic group known as Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square), which was founded in December of 1929 by Belgian artist and critic Michel Seuphor, Uruguayan-Catalan artist Joaquín Torres-García, and Catalan-American artist Pierre Daura. Based in Paris, the international group of more than 80 artists included notable members such as Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Alexandra Exter, Jean Arp, Fernand Legér, Le Corbusier, and Marcelle Cahn. Cercle et Carré’s artists were male and female, emerging and established, and from Europe, Russia, and the Americas. "Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art" will showcase more than 50 works by more than 30 of Cercle et Carré’s participants, examining the formation of the group, its sole exhibition, and its artistic legacy.

Consider the Source

Art Show
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.

Pierre Daura: Fifty Fifty

Art Show
In celebration of a major gift from the artist’s daughter, Martha R. Daura, of paintings, prints, and drawings, and in conjunction with the exhibition Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art, this exhibition of works from BAM’s Permanent Collection examines Daura’s varied approach to art making and investigates his storied life in Spain, France, and the United States. He was a prolific artist, and one not easily categorized, because he was interested in both realism and abstraction. Pierre Daura: Fifty Fifty resituates Daura as an influential twentieth-century artist and highlights his creative range by showing works in several styles and media.

Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art

Art Show
"Cercle et Carré" offers a new and insightful look at modernism in interwar Europe. The exhibition focuses on the influential but short-lived artistic group known as Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square), which was founded in December of 1929 by Belgian artist and critic Michel Seuphor, Uruguayan-Catalan artist Joaquín Torres-García, and Catalan-American artist Pierre Daura. Based in Paris, the international group of more than 80 artists included notable members such as Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Alexandra Exter, Jean Arp, Fernand Legér, Le Corbusier, and Marcelle Cahn. Cercle et Carré’s artists were male and female, emerging and established, and from Europe, Russia, and the Americas. "Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art" will showcase more than 50 works by more than 30 of Cercle et Carré’s participants, examining the formation of the group, its sole exhibition, and its artistic legacy.

Consider the Source

Art Show
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.

Cercle et Carré’s artists were male and female, emerging and established, and from Europe, Russia, and the Americas. "Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art" will showcase more than 50 works by more than 30 of Cercle et Carré’s participants, examining the formation of the group, its sole exhibition, and its artistic legacy.

Pierre Daura: Fifty Fifty

Art Show
In celebration of a major gift from the artist’s daughter, Martha R. Daura, of paintings, prints, and drawings, and in conjunction with the exhibition Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art, this exhibition of works from BAM’s Permanent Collection examines Daura’s varied approach to art making and investigates his storied life in Spain, France, and the United States. He was a prolific artist, and one not easily categorized, because he was interested in both realism and abstraction. Pierre Daura: Fifty Fifty resituates Daura as an influential twentieth-century artist and highlights his creative range by showing works in several styles and media.

Consider the Source

Art Show
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.
