If the acrid air is still heavy with smoke on Thursday, what better way to beat it than to step inside any number of Boise galleries, retailers and organizations and turn your watery eyes to some art... Art Source Gallery (1015 W. Main St.) presents Ilfochrome in Retrospect. Ilfochrome, a photo process for producing the highest quality prints, was discontinued in
2004 2012 but on First Thursday, Art Source will have Ilfochrome collector prints available. Boise Art Museum (670 S. Julia Davis Dr.) hosts a meet-and-greet with artist Karen Woods, whose exhibit The Way to Wilder is currently on display. Evermore Prints (780 W. Main St.) is displaying States of Being: Dreaming, Mindful, Enlightened, an exhibit of work by Shelley Jund, a favorite Boise Weekly cover artist. West Elm (824 W. Idaho St.) has work by several local artists, including Amy Granger's sweet bluebird design; and a few doors down, The Mode Lounge (800 W. Idaho St.) is showing Connect with Yoga, an exhibit of mixed-media paintings and at 6 p.m., holds a free 45-minute yoga session on the patio. Plus, downing a drink or acquiring some art benefits the awesome Women's and Children's Alliance.
