“Tippy Didn’t Know the World Wasn’t Ending” by Carolyn Greener, a Nampa Art Collective Member


The Nampa Art Collective (NAC) and TVAA are collaborating on a double whammy of two physical exhibitions of art from our very popular Together in the Dark Online Exhibition, an exhibition about the Great American Eclipse and by artists from across the Path of Totality.

Here are the details for the two physical exhibitions:

In Boise, nineteen artists from the online exhibition celebrate the grand opening of the Gem Center for the Arts with a physical exhibition that includes thirty-one pieces of their art, from the online exhibition and more. The opening reception is January 12, 5-10 p.m. There will be music, refreshments and many activities for the opening. So, bring your friends and enjoy the exhibition and the Gem Center.

What: Together in the Dark/Boise
Where: The Gem Center for the Arts, 2417 W. Bank Drive, Boise, 83705
When: January 12, 2018 – February 2, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, January 12, 2018, 5-10 p.m.

But, wait. There’s more. The Nampa Art Collective’s next quarterly exhibition at the Nampa Civic Center will also include art from the online Together in the Dark. NAC is actually putting on two concurrent exhibitions at the Nampa Civic Center: Together in the Dark/Nampa and Black, White and Gray.

The Together in the Dark/Nampa exhibition features eclipse-themed work by eight artists from the online exhibition, including all three award- winners from the online exhibition!

The second exhibition, Black, White and Gray, shows work by local artists, working in a seasonal theme on the short days and cold dark nights of winter.

What: Together in the Dark/Nampa and Black, White and Gray
Where: The Nampa Civic Center, 311 3rd Street South, Nampa ID 83651
When: January 9, 2018 – March 25, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, January 19, 2018, 7:00 – 9:30 p.m.

You’ll want to attend both receptions. Meet the artists and see the work.
