More information :
For those of you who are not aware, the Gem Center for the Arts (2417 W Bank Dr, Boise) was sold in 2020. One of the original founders and visionaries, Candy Canning, has recently returned as the Arts Director and is working diligently to bring back many of the programs and goals that were originally planned, along with many new opportunities for artists of all levels and mediums. Many of these programs will operate under Candy’s newly-opened community classroom, Catalyst Arts Collaborative, currently in the basement of the Gem. She will serve TVAA as a liason for future collaborations and large-scale events, starting with the return of their Third Thursday open house event, beginning in March. She would love to have a couple of representatives from TVAA in the gallery space that evening (5-10pm) to engage with the public. The Gem is also planning a grand re-opening event in May which will include as many artists from the Treasure Valley as possible. We will share more information about this as it becomes available.
In addition to providing classroom space for artists to teach as a way to support themselves, her goal is to partner with as many Arts organizations as possible to share resources and support artists and the community in meaningful ways. Many of you have worked with Candy in some way, as she has been involved in many events and organizations over the years. In her first two months back, she has made valuable partnerships with BSU, Idaho Watercolor Society, Xanadu, and a long list of artists and supporters in the Treasure Valley, while building Catalyst from the ground up. She is currently accepting proposals for classes for the coming year and is looking for dedicated volunteers to help grow this entity into its potential. There are a few classes up and running on the Catalyst website, including the return of her popular figure drawing sessions and open studio time. To ensure the safety for everyone involved and the sustainability of these programs during the pandemic, masks are required for all classes and events and seating is limited to a maximum of 8 participants.
