Boise State Visual Artist Earns Inclusion in Prestigious Art Publication

Painting by Jaren Andreas
“Cowboys as Indians,” Jared Andreas.

The work of student Jared Andreas appears in the current New American Paintings: West #132.

Andreas will graduate in May 2018 with a bachelor of fine arts, emphasis in drawing and painting. He recently received the top prize in a student exhibition at the Visual Arts Center juried by Jason Manley from Weber State University, Ogden, Utah.

The work of Veiko Valencia, who received a master of fine arts from Boise State in 2017, appeared twice in New American Paintings while Valencia was a student in the art department.

“Inclusion in New American Paintings (a bi-monthly exhibition-in-print juried by renowned museum curators) is an incredibly noteworthy accomplishment for any artist, and especially significant for art students,” said Prof. Kathleen Keys, chair of the art department. “Work by Jared Andreas and Veiko Valencia is now being viewed by national and international collectors, art world professionals, artists and art enthusiasts who look to the publication to discover emerging American painters.”
