Wonderful write up. Definitely something to explore for my own site. Meanwhile, I will FBit and tweet Cleo's trail.
Not douchebag persay, but it stinks of the douchebag's next door neighbor, the angsting hipster.
The sort which says "I remember when Papyrus was cool but it totally sold out in '94". Then all the other graphic designers nod in agreement, but almost none of them notice they're copying eachother's styles in an attempt to keep up with the modern graphic arts look.
Looking forward to seeing Anthony this Tuesday (7/27) at The Community Library in Ketchum!
oh by the way i was trying to remember an artist that john mentioned -Koslo ??? the organic flow a painting will take, this has always been a guide to me. you have to give up control, the zen thing, and let it have it's way. i can't seem to find anything about him, john said he was a early pioneer of acrylic painting.Andre Ferrella's recent work in Wisc. brought me on this search MK
We were lucky enough to have Mr. Killmaster as an instructor in the commercial art program at Ferris State Collage 1968-69. i watched in complete rapture as he painted a landscape once, he was my wife's instructor and i was so jealous. Last time i saw him was at the Ann Arbor Art Festival, still as amazing.
Thanks Amy- This might warrant a trip down south- well done!
I have to thank Anthony Doerr for his encouraging comments on being an upcoming writer (and of course, Bill English for gathering these comments and crafting them into the article). As an aspiring writer, it helps to know I'm not the only one working in doubt.
Can't wait to read the book!
This coming August will mark my 10th year of doing drag or being a DIVA! I really do appreciate all the ISGCI, MGI and the other organizations that have offered the Gay Community for the State of Idaho. Even though, I reside on the eastern part of the state near Pocatello, I have always traveled to Boise to attend the Coronations, MGI pageants and to perform during the events that welcome all performers. I big THANK YOU to the 32nd Reigning Empress Selena Blaquem Emperor JD Morgan and Princess Andrea Morgan. Keep on striving and driving for the ISGCI!

Thank you Amy and the Boise weekly for the insightful and upbeat article on the ISGCI. We are always talking about ways to let others know the many positive things our organization does in the Treasure Valley and this hit the nail on the head.

just to let you know also... the Mr & Miss Gay Boise Pride is the correct term & the websites to learn more about these titles/organizations are www.idahotreefund.org, www.idahogemcourt.org, www.idahogemcourt.org/mgi/reigns, & www.boisepride.org.
I just wanted to tell you thank you for the great article about the ISGCI and the ICS that you crafted so well! It is a rare thing for our organization to receive any kind of media attention, I think mostly because people feel that the art of drag is a fashion subculture rather than a serious movement for change. Drag queens have been practicing their art for thousands of years in a variety of cultures throughout the world.

Editor's note: The ISGCI is not an umbrella organization for Miss, Mr. or Miss Gay Idaho; the Tree Fund or Miss Boise Gay Pride. MGI, the Tree Fund and MBGP are all organzations independent of the ISGCI.
That response is proof positive that Shoogi is a douchebag!
This article is proof positive that all graphic artists are douchebags!
Psssst. Hey Pam,
"Mud Season", "Topo Map", and "In Velvet" have less to do with the West than they do with rural life all over the U.S. Just look a couple of hundred miles North of where you were born.
The rainy rural Northeast defines Mud Season, and we all hike with topos there, and look at early season bucks in Velvet.
Thanks Tara for your thoughtful insights on the artists and the exhibition.
The exhibit opened last Friday, Sept. 4, and runs through Friday, Oct. 23. The Visual Arts Center's hours are: Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday 12-4 p.m.; closed Sundays, university holidays and during exhibition installations.
Tara, when does the exhibit start? What hours?
Aside from the four million dollars TrICA needs for the building, remember to buy lots of cupcakes to pay executive salaries of $10,000.00+ each month!!!
I have some reservations about what BAM considers art. I've seen displays that were little more than an old can of spam next two a few lucky strike wrappers (not organized in any fashion than other to display their logos?). Needless to say, Art is usually lost on me.
This exibit is a marked exception. After wading through the rooms of what appeared to be melted cardboard left to dry, and a children's exibit that looked like a playplace in a local UPS store, my family and I stumbled upon this exibit that made the trip worthwhile. Devorah Sperber's art challenges the mind and all of its perceptions. I'd love to see more like this in the future.
