Although event organizers say Vague IV, or V4GUE, will be "a bit smaller in scope and hyperactivity than 2009's Vague III," the event still promises to showcase four bold Treasure Valley talents.
On Friday, Feb. 11, from 5:30-9:30 p.m., and Saturday, Feb. 12, from noon-9 p.m., Vague IV will be held at Bryan A. Moore's Artists in Residence studio in BODO. The show will display pieces created by Moore, Tomas Montano, Bruce Maurey and Wren Van Bockel.
The group is reuniting after a two-year hiatus, minus a few members, to bring Boise a two-day art exhibit. Vague IV will be open to the public with mediums ranging from paint to sculpture to prints. Maurey and Van Bockel will display their exhibit, "On the Land and Out to Sea," which was recently up at Flying M Coffeehouse and includes miniature wood renderings and paintings/sculptures of "anomalous creatures inhabiting bizarre landscapes." In addition, Tomas Montano will have part of his "Egyptian Gawds" series on display, which is currently in the window of the Egyptian Theatre.
To bring both evenings to a close, local band Taxi del Taxi will team up with the Vague Collaborative to create "abstract aural landscapes," inviting everyone with "an ear for art to join in the sonic fun."
