Creative Access Center

Just mention that a book is a classic and watch eyes glaze over. We unconsciously intuit that so-called "high art" is more formidable and difficult to process than popular art and in the firing of a neuron, we sometimes dismiss it. Boise Open Studios has long united some of the Treasure Valley's most talented visual artists, but glance at its list of participating artists and your brain will scream "high art." Its alumni include Karen Bubb, John Killmaster and Sue Latta, and the visual media BOSCO represents span paintings, drawings, sculpture and glass works--but don't let BOSCO boggle the mind. Instead, swing by Creative Access Art Center, which is hosting BOSCO's Opening Doors--A Glimpse Into the Artist's Mind II, a showing of numerous works by local artists that CAAC is hosting in conjunction with BOSCO. When you're finished taking in the art, make some of your own, like a snowflake print with Wingtip Press to support the third annual Virtual Snow Day fundraiser. For every $10 donated, contributors are entered to win an iPad or Disney gift card worth $750.
