    John Taye's mastery of drawing
      John Taye has been a mainstay of the Boise State art department for over 30 years—he teaches sculpture, painting, life drawing and drawing. By all accounts, he has been a good teacher, giving his students a solid foundation in technique, form and composition upon which to build their own aesthetic. In the spring, he will retire from academic life. This exhibit at the Boise State Visual Arts Center, entitled "The Quiet Art: A Drawing Retrospective," commemorates his years of service.

  • A League of Extraordinary Artists

    Boise State's 2006 faculty art show
      Driving down a crowded San Francisco street with my sister, I saw the light. It was actually light, too--a ray of light painted on the side of a brick building. There were some freestanding shadowed figures, a little girl on a swing and other symbolic colors and birds in flight amid the rays of light in the giant painting. I was about to turn to my sister and make my regular rant about how I sometimes just don't understand art, when a line toward the bottom of the whole ordeal stopped me: "Art does not read like a sentence."

    Boise State student views riots through photo lens
      "Police were coming down the road, shooting tear gas, shooting water from giant cannons on tanks. The Turkish people were trying to build barriers with anything they could find: fences, automobiles, giant poles and sidewalk bricks, anything to stop the police."

    Sensing for the common defense
      It's kinda like the football team. Not that we're as famous as the football team.
