Best Idaho Visual Artist 

Ward Hooper

Readers' Picks

When you see a Ward Hooper print, you may very well think you're looking at a vintage piece of art--and indeed, some of his subjects are American icons: Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, Elvis Presley, Lucille Ball, John Wayne, the Rat Pack. From images of the great Idaho outdoors, to Boise State football, to the Caldwell Night Rodeo, to an Airedale terrier, to a cat with a pacifier in its mouth, Hooper's Art Nouveau-esque illustration style evokes the past but his bold designs are timeless--and affordable. At Hooper's gallery/store, you can find a giclee print of a brook trout for your favorite fisherman/woman or the historic Bronco football 2009 season for the person who bleeds blue and orange. At the Ward Hooper Gallery of Art, past meets the present. 745 W. Idaho St., Boise, 208-287-8150,
