D’Arcy Bellamy: Pipe Dream

Through May 12, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.


D’Arcy Bellamy transforms steel pipe into abstract, kinetic sculptures. Working in a method he calls “subtractive fabrication,” Bellamy removes material from the pipe using a plasma cutter, adding only space until the work reveals itself. His sculptures reflect many of the principles of Zen aesthetics and Wabi-Sabi, a framework pivoting on the reception of dynamic and evolving imperfection. These finished forms cast intentioned shadows and capture the essence of movement by springing to life when gently touched. With Artist Talk on Friday, April 26, 6-7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Free, and open to the public. Through May 12. 208-426-1242

Dejah Devereaux: Sketchy Somethings

Through May 12, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.


Through her series Sketchy Somethings, Dejah Devereaux explores an emotional life in the artist’s unknown future, here portrayed through line and form, each portrait a fragment of Devereaux’s personality. In direct response to the fear of not being good enough and then the surety of belonging while standing in her artistic ground, Devereaux practices mark making on fragile paper to raise the tension between hesitation and action, anxiety and calm. Inherent in the word "something," there is the possibility of anything and the potential for greatness within. In the SUB Trueblood Gallery. Through May 12. 208-426-2541

Included in the exhibition are works by 51 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp and Marie Watt, among others.

Jae Yong Kim: Donut Ever Forget Me

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through July 7
Boise Art Museum 670 Julia Davis Drive, Boise Boise Downtown and Fringe


South Korean artist Jae Yong Kim’s installation Donut Ever Forget Me is made up of hundreds of hand-sculpted and intricately painted ceramic donuts. Kim views each of the donuts as a diminutive painting, with their decorated surfaces invoking the paint splatters of Jackson Pollock or the mesmerizing dot patterns of Yayoi Kusama. Kim’s use of the ceramic medium and his appropriation of imagery by famous painters is a clever critique of the perceived divide between fine art and craft. By depicting row after row of sweet treats, rendered in a brilliant Pop-Art palette, he also explores the global culture of consumerism and invites viewers to consider their own consumption. Jae Yong Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1973. He received a BFA in Ceramics and Sculpture from the University of Hartford in Connecticut in 1998, and an MFA in Ceramics from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., in 2001. Through July 7. 208-345-8330
