Facts, Fictions & Lies

Welcome to Facts, Fictions & Lies, an online exhibition created by the Treasure Valley Artists Alliance. Art tells the story and artists tell the story again, in words. It can be fact, fiction or an outright lie. Be entertained, enlightened, and dissolved in tears. We brought together a selection of the best art with the best stories, workshopped them, and created an exhibition at Boise State’s Fine Arts Gallery in the Student Union.

Christian WinnWe gratefully acknowledge the contribution of time and talent of Christian Winn, Idaho Writer in Residence, for workshopping the stories submitted by the artists.

Congratulations to our first, second and third place winners:

Becka Watkins, First Place for her art and story, My Father’s Death
Ashley Quick, Second Place for her art and story, Selene
Greg Bishop, Third Place for his art and story, Koyaanisqatsi
