On Thursday evening, Gallery Five18
hosted our annual Boise Weekly Cover Art Auction, where people bid on artworks that have graced Boise Weekly
's cover in the last 12 months.
The evening's top seller was Ciera Shaver's "Wired World," which went for an impressive $950, adding to a total of $22,589 raised.
Proceeds from the auction go toward the Boise Weekly
grants program, which, since the program's inception, has awarded nearly $100,000 to Treasure Valley artists.
