The Gem Gallery gives priority to emerging artists and curators who may have been historically overlooked by traditional gallery spaces, and to work that demonstrates or establishes quality in both conceptualization and technique.

    Don’t Get Scammed by this Flim-Flam Man! I was contacted by e-mail by a man who said he wanted to purchase two of my pieces. He knew the names/dimensions (don’t know where he got this info, I don’t have a website). Long story short, he purported to be moving from Seattle to Miami … asked me for prices (which I did not supply) … and said he’d issue a Cashier’s Check for the agreed-to amount PLUS an overage amount for me to “pay his movers.” Uh, no. Classic scam pattern, don’t be tempted. If you EVER accept a Cashier’s Check from somebody you don’t know, call the issuing bank which is required to disclose if the check is legitimate, but not to disclose who purchased it. Don’t get burned, we work too hard to be fleeced.

  • 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.

The Alexa Rose Arts Foundation will provide needed space for artists to create, manage and share creative work within a facility called the Carnegie Studios. Located in the inspiring and historic Carnegie Library Building, the Carnegie Studios will provide artist-in- residence space for local filmmakers, visual, literary and performing artists; providing office and flexible meeting space for artists and arts organizations; and present temporary art exhibits.

    Up to eighteen artist studio spaces will be provided free or for minimal cost as part of an artist residency/fellowship program to actively practicing mid-career artists in Ada and Canyon Counties. Spaces will be awarded based on a juried process according to need and quality of work. Studio residencies will be provided for terms up to one year. The next application opportunity for studio space will be in Winter 2019.

    Office spaces will be provided for cultural organizations serving individual artists in Ada and Canyon County based on availability and their service to individual artists. Flexible meeting spaces will be made available to individual artists and member organizations that serve artists. This space will be conducive for board and committee meetings, collaborating artist discussions, meetings between artists and their clients, play readings, interviews, and more.
