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.

Mapping the Present: Selections from the Driek and Michael Zirinsky Collection

Art Show
"Mapping the Present" features a selection of works by contemporary artists who use maps and mapping as part of their art practice. Rather than trying to chart the world accurately, these artists use the visual language of maps to create imagined geographies. The exhibition features collages, constructions, drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures by national and international artists and explores the many ways in which artists articulate and navigate the world around them. The Museum is grateful to Driek and Michael Zirinsky for loaning these extraordinary artworks.

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.

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.

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.
