RAW Natural Born Artists: Connect

Wednesday, Aug. 29

by

Google offers four different definitions for the word “raw,” but one in particular seems to fit the RAW artist collective best: “(of an emotion or quality) strong and undisguised.” RAW is an international community that bands artists of all stripes together under the banner of pure creativity, focusing on those whose work runs off the beaten path, whether it’s in the field of fashion, music, visual art, performing arts, hair, makeup, film or photography. Dozens of artists in Boise fall under RAW’s umbrella, and on Wednesday, Aug. 29, they’re gathering at the Revolution Concert House for an exhibition called Connect, which RAW promises is “not your average art show.” Artists in all nine categories will be represented, showing off their skills and offering their work for sale on the event center floor. If you’re an expression enthusiast, don’t forget to pencil RAW into your calendar for Wednesday night.
