  • The “Art That’s Small at Eagle City Hall” exhibit is currently on display! It will be on display through May.
    Thank you! fellow TVAA members for your support and participation.
    Thank you! for the quality of art you submitted.

    It is my understanding that there are many City of Eagle “firsts” associated with the exhibit:
    First Themed Exhibit;
    First Juried Exhibit;
    First Cash Award Exhibit; and,
    First Art Reception.

    I think this exhibit would be especially interesting to children, because all the artworks are no bigger than 12″x12″ and many are smaller than that.

    The more I discover about the area, the more I find that we live in a very talented community of fine artists and performing artists.

  • I know that there are some terrific printmakers in the Treasure Valley. I have seen their work hither and yon, but I have not been able to find a local printmaker organization. So, today I created a “Meetup” to remedy that situation. Ultimately I would like to obtain and active list of printmakers that might create an exhibit and get involved in an activity sponsored by the City of Eagle’s Art Commission. I have very few printmakers listed as members of TVAA. If you know active printmaker artists, please get the word out.
