First Thursday: Idaho-Inspired Paintings at Seda Studio 

This past spring, the Idaho Bureau of Land Management hired JanyRae Seda as its first artist-in-residence. She was taken down the Bruneau River in the Bruneau-Jarbridge Wilderness for three days--rafting through 10 miles of class four rapids.

"It was the first time I'd been camping since I was a Girl Scout," Seda said. "I'm hooked. I can understand why artists go out into wilderness now."

After she returned, Seda--whose work is featured on this week's cover of the Boise Weekly--painted 22 landscapes that captured the power of the wilderness. This First Thursday, she'll be presenting those pieces to the public at Seda Studio at 514 S. 14th St.

The event will include a discussion at 5:30 p.m., refreshments and Seda's record player. A BLM representative will visit the studio that night to pick one of the paintings for use as a poster and eventual sale at auction to fund wilderness programs.

"It's probably the best body of work I've ever done," Seda said. "Idaho is pretty amazing and that canyon is sweet."
