Art Source Gallery showcases seventh annual national juried exhibition
By Johanna Kirk
In 2001, the artist-owned downtown gallery, Art Source, decided Boise artists needed a wake-up call. They needed a venue that would inspire innovation, dialogue and production. The gallery envisioned an event that would draw heterogeneous works from artists across the country and hoped that bringing sundry, fresh ideas together would energize the Boise art scene. From the outset, it was not a money-making venture, and after seven successful years of juried expositions, the owners still don't make a cent. Every penny collected from entry fees goes to cover the expenses of the exhibit and to award the top artists in the show.
