First Thursday: Michelle Tullis Exhibit


If you didn't know better, you might think Michelle Tullis' subjects posed for their pictures. Against a backdrop of rolling snow-covered hills and scrub the color of a palomino's coat, Tullis photographed free-range horses in the Boise Foothills during the winter months. In her website bio Tullis describes a lifelong love of horses, but in her photos a deep sense of respect is as clear as her affection for the majestic beasts. In her bio, she writes:

"I lose all sense of time and want to take 'just one more photo.' It's hard to stop and walk away even when it is getting frigid and the sun is quickly setting in the dead of winter. Becoming mesmerized by free range horses in the Boise Foothills is the result."

Tullis' photos are breathtaking, but you don't have to just take our word for it. See for yourself when Amsterdam Lounge hosts an exhibit, a reception and a meet-and-greet with the artist from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on First Thursday. Tullis' artwork will be for sale during the reception, and all proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

If you love animals, the outdoors, the Foothills, photography or any combination thereof, see this exhibit. That's good advice, straight from the horse's mouth.
