Meet the Artist: Anna Fidler

Friday, Feb. 21

The Boise Art Museum welcomes painter Anna Fidler--whose exhibit Vampires and Wolf Men is currently on display at the museum--for the latest installment of Meet the Artist.

Fidler first made headlines in the Oregon art scene as the artist behind The Game, an exhibition showcasing dozens of paintings in honor of the Trail Blazers, Oregon's famed NBA team. Using a wide variety of media, Fidler is known for mixing the bizarre and the beautiful in her work.

For Vampires and Wolf Men, Fidler used portraits and pictures of people important to Oregon's history and re-created the images using Hollywood's obsession with werewolves and vampires. During the talk, visitors can learn more about her work; the steps involved, from inspiration to a finished canvas; and the themes present in the pieces. Vampires and Wolf Men is on display through Sunday, May 25.
