Field Studies: Interpreting the West Solo Exhibition
During the month of March, I had a solo exhibition at Boise State University Student Union Fine Arts Gallery. Field Studies: Interpreting the West displayed artworks from my Field Studies series. This series of work is inspired by specific locations in the Western states. Last year, this series was shown in a solo exhibition in Reno, NV. This year, I was happy to have the opportunity to display the second iteration of this solo exhibition in my hometown of Boise, Idaho. You can see more of the artwork in this series here.
The states with locations that inspired the pieces in this current exhibition include Idaho, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming and California. Each artwork title includes a “code” as an indication of inspiration location. For example, Zion National Park in Utah inspired the artwork, Field Study (U1Z1). The “U” represents Utah and the “Z” represents Zion in the title. 23 artworks were included in the display at Boise State University.
The exhibition opened on March 1st and was scheduled to come down on April 1st. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 virus the student union building closed March 24th, ending the exhibition early.
