ART Idaho

          ART Idaho 2017
  The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho (TAM) invites Idaho artists to apply for the 10th biennial ART Idaho exhibition. Accepted artists will have their artwork presented in an exhibition at TAM from Nov 18, 2017 - Feb 10, 2018.

ART Idaho is open to all artists currently residing in Idaho. All interpretations and mediums will be considered. 2-D and 3-D works are welcome. Entries must be original, entirely the work of the entrant, and created without the supervision of an art instructor. The work may not have been previously exhibited at TAM and must have been completed in the last two years.

As a child growing up in the Detroit area in the 1960s, Richard A. Young was influenced by hot rod culture, Mouse/Kelly studios, D.H. Lawrence and early science fiction films. He holds a B.F.A. with honors from Northern Michigan University, an M.A. in Art Education from Boise State University and an M.F.A. from Washington State University.

Young served as Chair of the Art Department (2003 – 2013) and Gallery Director of the Boise State Visual Arts Center (1994 - 2012) organizing numerous national and international exhibitions. As Curator of Education for Boise Art Museum and Artist in Residence/Master Teacher for the State Department of Education, he worked with teachers and students in over 60 elementary schools in Southwest Idaho. Young has also served as commissioner for the City of Boise, Department of Arts and History, memberat- large for the Idaho Commission on the Arts and trustee of Boise Art Museum. He is currently Professor of Painting at Boise State University where he serves as Chair of the University Art Collections committee.

Richard Young’s paintings and drawings stem from three primary investigations: an analysis of 19th century painted representations of nature, an inquiry into media/process as conveyor of meaning, and the use of irony and humor to suggest psychological and philosophical dilemmas. In addition to exhibiting throughout the country, Young’s work is included in many private and corporate collections including the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon and the Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan.

Entries for ART Idaho must be received on a labeled CD or thumb drive by Wed, Oct 4, 2017. Initial jurying will be from digital images. Each artist may submit a maximum of two pieces.

The quality of the image is extremely important. The juror will make selections based solely upon the digital files submitted. If selected, the work may be reproduced in exhibition publications using the digital files submitted. Any accepted work that differs in quality or is inconsistent with the image, may be disqualified at TAM’s discretion. Submitted CDs or thumb drives will not be returned.

Each image must be formatted as a jpg or tiff with a resolution of 300 dpi. All images must be contained on one CD or thumb drive. Each digital image must be named Entry #1 and Entry #2 to correspond with the entry form with no added text or identifying information. CDs/thumb drives must be labeled on the outside with artist’s name.

Artists are responsible for the cost of transporting their work to and from TAM. All accepted entries (both shipped and handdelivered) must arrive at TAM between 10 am on Tues, Oct 31 and 5 pm Fri, Nov 3, 2017. Work delivered before or after these dates will not be accepted.
