Treasure Valley Artists Alliance / Nampa Chapter

Curator’s Statement

2020 marks the 10th Anniversary of the TVAA as well as the 30th Anniversary of the Nampa Civic Center! In CELEBRATION of this milestone year, TVAA members have created celebration themed artworks to answer the following questions. What do we celebrate in our own lives, in our art, in our community? 2020 is a challenging year where many celebrations have been canceled. In the spirit of creative innovation, TVAA is working to create new virtual ways of interacting with this art exhibition. In addition to the currently installed physical art exhibition at the Nampa Civic Center, and this web-based art gallery, TVAA is also working to develop an interactive 3D virtual gallery version of Celebration. The virtual gallery will be a way to interact with the artworks in a simulated 3D environment. To add to the festive nature of this Celebration, TVAA will be awarding Best of Show prizes to selected artworks from this exhibition! Stay tuned for the announcement of those awards and the unveiling of the virtual gallery experience.

-Cheers!

Leslie Jay Bosch, Exhibitions Curator for TVAA at Nampa Civic Center
