Though a list of artists hasn't been specifically announced—their work will appear on the walls of the downtown Boise Flying M for bidding starting Thursday, Feb. 7—local painter Suzanne Lee Chetwood has already offered a sneak peak of the acrylic painting she plans to donate on her Instagram (@suzanneleechetwood). Called "Snow Love," it depicts snow-covered mountains in monochrome blue, and has, according to the artist, 13 hearts hidden in the snow. Meanwhile on her own Instagram (@darcynutt), Chalice Tattoo Studio Owner Darcy Nutt previewed a very different painting, which centers on a dagger thrust through a realistic, blood-red heart. Those two works are just a taste of the pieces to come.
The auction will close at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 17, giving collectors 10 days to scope out the selection. Stop by Flying M during business hours (9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday) to stake a claim on your favorites.
