Since Napoleon paid heed to a group of outraged artists turned down by the Academy of Fine Arts’ Paris Salon way back in 1863, juried exhibitions have been known to pass over wonderful works of art in favor of … well, other wonderful works of art.
So it is, too, for our own Idaho Triennial, hosted every three years by the Boise Art Museum where art accepted into the exhibition is determined by a single juror. However, this year we thought it might be time to get a look at some of the pieces that didn’t make it into the big show.
Our show opens Friday, February 24, with a reception from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Boise State Public Radio offices gallery. Fourteen TVAA members will be showing twenty-three pieces certifiably rejected from the Idaho Triennial. Local singer-songwriter Fiona Luray will provide the music, and there will be pizza!
