For this event we will cover an entire room in canvas, creating a platform in which to stage a demonstration of award winning Idaho artist Kerry Moosman’s specific style of pottery building. The tools and materials of his hand built pottery will be displayed as well as pottery pieces in varying stages of production. To view more of Kerry Moosman’s work visit the Stewart Gallery online at http://www.stewartgallery.com/artists/moosman/moosman.html.

The Vague Collaborative (one Boise’s newest creative endeavors) will join us May 7th for Modern Art 2009 in room 235. As a group of creative individuals, they are interested in expanding each others knowledge and skills. From tattoos, to printmaking, to film, to belly dancing, the Vague Collaborative is an extremely diverse group of individuals. Through this collective, they are interested in sharing skills and ideas that foster both individual and group creativity.
Three of it members Tomas Montano, Jay Nelson and David Colcord will represent part of the groups talent. The three members share similar painting/printmaking/graphic design backgrounds. Their dreamy, nostalgic, pop culture influenced work, will grace the walls, the chairs and the bed of room 235 during Modern Art 2009.
We can’t wait!

He has received awards in exhibitions of the National Sculpture Society, Salt Lake Art Center, Springville Art Museum, Museum of Church History and Art, and the Degas Pastel Society. His work is in many private and public collections regionally.
Taye draws on classical traditions from the late 19th and early 20th century in both his paintings and sculpture. The mood of his work is peaceful and reflective. His paintings explore the subtle harmonies of color found in the human figure and in the natural forms of his still lifes. In all of his work he tries to emphasize a positive, affirmative view of life, and an appreciation for the intricacies and beauties of the natural world.
