  • An exhibition of my new artwork is now on display at the Trueblood Pop Up Gallery in the Student Union Building at Boise State University. Woo hoo!

    The bad news is that, due to Covid, the show is limited to visitors with a campus ID. The GOOD news is that you can see the artwork on my website. And you can even take a virtual tour of the show while you’re there. Here’s the link: https://michaelchambersart.com/character-development-portrait-studies-is-now-open/

    We’re all looking forward to the day we can get together again in person. In the meantime, life and art and everything good must carry on! Enjoy the show, and let me know what you think!

    This show is made possible by the Student Union at Boise State University and by the Idaho Commission on the Arts.

    Kuna to launch virtual art gallery. In an effort to share local artists’ work amid social distancing, separation and seclusion, the Kuna Arts Commission is curating a virtual art gallery. In announcing the gallery in November, the arts commission wrote, “The intent of the Digital Art Gallery is to virtually promote public awareness and participation of art in all its various forms … during this modern-day pandemic.” For more details, see Blake Jones’ article in the Idaho Press.

    I’m an art therapist looking for artists who would be interested in sharing a large studio space situation. I work with artists with disabilities (children and adults) and wish to create an inclusive studio. I’m currently looking for the right space and seeing if there is any interest in TVAA to share.
