Idaho Arts Quarterly » Editor's Note

Summer 2007


Once again, we here at Boise Weekly have amassed a collection of articles and events spanning the Gem State from the Panhandle to the southernmost points, to provide another stellar issue of the Idaho Arts Quarterly.

For North Idaho, Carol Price Spurling takes a look at a summer concert series held at Cordelia, a historic Lutheran church in Moscow built in 1883.

In our Central Idaho feature, Sun Valley sculptor Rod Kagan talks about his bronze totem sculptures. Pocatello's newest experimental theater group, Theatre in a Barn, takes center stage in our East Idaho feature.

For our cover story, Boise artist Amy Westover offers insight to her process of creating everything from large, public sculptures to delicate works in glass, paper and even soap.

As is our way, we have an array of cultural listings for each region of the state, and we've included regional reports where we've plucked out just a few of the events we think would be the most fun to attend, and offer a little more detail and information.

And, as is my way, I am privileged to be a part of this incredible publication. If you get half as much out of reading Idaho Arts Quarterly as I do putting it together, I've done my job well.
