Now that you've sated your turkey hunger and quelled your Black Friday shopping lust, why not head to Black Hunger Gallery for an art show that has nothing to do with gluttony or consumerism? The new gallery, located at 2606 Breneman St., is the collective studio space of Eli Craven, Erin Cunningham, Maria Chavez, Eamonn Parke and Jon Sadler. The gallery is also an exhibition venue that focuses on non-local, emerging, contemporary art.

Black Hunger's upcoming show, Le Ramrod, will feature work by Tenspeed Hero, which is "an artistic collaboration of cycling aficionados based in Chicago," comprised of Jonathan Sadler, Luke Batten, Todd Simeone and Ben Gill. The exhibit will explore the group's "unshakable fascination with the culture of cycling."

An opening reception will go down on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 6-9 p.m. with catering from Abigail Selene Thomas.

In other art opening news, the Creative Access Art Center, located at 500 S. Eighth St., will premiere its Enable exhibition on First Thursday, Dec. 1, from 5-8 p.m., with music by Mostecello, Natasha Carina and The Gunfighters.

The show will run through Dec. 23, and features work from artists Nathan Brasley, Dawn Burke, Marilyn Cosho, Carlos Guerra, Brandon Fuller and Alexandra Hansen.

The Creative Access Arts Center is a partnership between VSA of Idaho, Idaho Parents Unlimited Inc., and the Idaho State Independent Living Council, which aims to "create opportunities by providing professional training, workshops, exhibitions and sales for artists with disabilities."

Also opening is BW cover artist Mark A. Hardy's new exhibit, Of Rock and Water: Photographs by Mark A. Hardy. The series focuses on natural elements like water, rocks and soil with compositions that "emphasize shapes, textures, reflections and movement."

You can check out Hardy's work at a special opening reception in the Boise State Student Union Gallery on Thursday, Dec. 1, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 2, 2012.

In other exciting Boise State arts news, English faculty Alan Heathcock and Mitch Wieland were recently selected as 2012 National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellows for creative writing. These award-winning Idaho authors--and esteemed Boise Weekly Fiction 101 judges--were two of only 40 fellows selected from a pool of more than 1,200 applicants. Heathcock and Wieland will each receive a check for $25,000. In an email, Wieland commented that "Boise is on a literary roll."
