Texture This!

September 8, 2017 through November 3, 2017


It’s all about texture!

Light reveals texture on every surface and object, even particles in the air. Texture can evoke feelings and emotions. It invites touch and exploration.

The exhibition is open to all mediums, 2D and 3D. We encourage artists of all mediums to apply.

Please note: the submission deadline has passed.

Acceptance of Work

Current TVAA member(s) submitting images meeting the requirements of this exhibition’s theme by the deadline are encouraged to submit artwork for this show. Artwork selected for the exhibition must be available from the drop-off date through to the pick-up date. Substitutions will not be considered. If you think there will be a conflict in scheduling a particular artwork, please do not submit that piece. The Exhibition committee reserves the right to exclude any artwork for any reason, including not being appropriately prepared for installation.

Hanging Devices

Each accepted artwork should have an appropriate hanging device attached. Read this article for information on professional framing and appropriate hanging devices. If artwork is heavy, please make sure hanging device is suitable for weight and appropriate for sheetrock. Pieces without appropriate hanging devices will not be installed.

Delivery of Artwork

Accepted artwork must be dropped off at the offices of Boise State Public Radio, 220 E. Parkcenter Blvd. in Boise between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm on September 5, 2017. All artwork should be labeled on the back with the artist’s name and the title of the piece. This is important for properly identifying each piece as signatures are sometimes hard to decipher. Artists will also be required to sign a release upon delivery of work.


Artists may provide email contact information for contact by potential patrons. Artwork for sale will have the works labeled with “Value $____”. Any work not for sale will be labeled NFS. When the show comes down if the work has sold, artists are encouraged to donate 10% to TVAA and 10% to Boise State Public Radio, retaining 80% of the sale themselves. Sold work must remain on exhibition for the duration of the show and will have a “red dot” on the label indicating the work has been sold. Purchases must be arranged by the individual artists and their buyers. Neither TVAA nor BSPR will handle any sales.
