Emerging: CWI Capstone Collection

April 19 – May 9, 2021

Student Union Fine Arts Gallery

The CWI Studio Art program promotes the development of artistic skills and practice, craftsmanship, and aesthetic discernment. The AA degree in Studio Art provides students with a foundational understanding of the history of visual culture, provides opportunities to grow as artists, and prepares students who are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree in art.

The 2021 CWI Capstone celebrates the artistic and academic achievements of these College of Western Idaho Studio Art graduates. Boise State is pleased to host their first professional exhibition and hopes they find a future home at the Center for Visual Arts. 

If you are unable to see the show on campus, please visit where the show will be documented digitally.

Virtual Tour Here: Tricia Florence Virtual Tour

Student Union Trueblood Pop Up Art Gallery

Living in the woods of northern Idaho, Tricia Florence drives the same 17-mile stretch to town and has driven the same road over the past 29 years. She has taken this routine and turned it into a visual contemplation. Her present body of work presents an abstracted, aerial perspective of places familiar and yet always, in some aspect, unexpected. Creating a visual memory of the drive, she reimagines and recontextualizes trailer houses, cabins, and farms. Through her compositions she provides her audience with a formal meditation on living in rural places.
