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.

Charles Gill: Observatory

Art Show
Gill considers keen observation to be essential for both making and experiencing art. He is interested in the idea of the museum as an observatory, a place to look. Much of his subject matter is domestic interiors and suburban landscapes, but he wants viewers to look beyond the furniture and the neatly manicured lawns to the spatial relationships among forms. This exhibition brings together a diverse array of artworks—paintings, drawings, prints, bricolages, and an altered book—created over the course of the last three decades. Many of the works explore the same subject in different media. For example, compositions from Gill’s altered book served as the inspiration for large-scale oil paintings and charcoal drawings. The exhibition has been arranged to maximize connections between the works, and visitors are encouraged to look closely for visual links.

A New State of Matter: Contemporary Glass

Sculpture
Each of the nineteen artists included in this exhibition examines the material and symbolic potential of glass in unique and revealing ways. For example, artists Charlotte Potter and April Surgent use the ancient process of cameo glass engraving to explore relationships in the age of social media and climate change, respectively. Jeffrey Stenbom utilizes cast glass to unveil the struggles facing the nation’s veterans. David Chatt, in a repetitive, labor-intensive process, covers found objects with thousands of miniscule glass beads to discuss family and nostalgia. Amber Cowan repurposes American pressed glass to create her intricate installations that recall a by-gone era.

Charles Gill: Observatory

Art Show
Gill considers keen observation to be essential for both making and experiencing art. He is interested in the idea of the museum as an observatory, a place to look. Much of his subject matter is domestic interiors and suburban landscapes, but he wants viewers to look beyond the furniture and the neatly manicured lawns to the spatial relationships among forms. This exhibition brings together a diverse array of artworks—paintings, drawings, prints, bricolages, and an altered book—created over the course of the last three decades. Many of the works explore the same subject in different media. For example, compositions from Gill’s altered book served as the inspiration for large-scale oil paintings and charcoal drawings. The exhibition has been arranged to maximize connections between the works, and visitors are encouraged to look closely for visual links.
