Lisk Gallery Moves and R. Grey Celebrates 25th Anniversary 

Plus a new food-themed exhibit at the Boise State Visual Arts Center

From relocations and anniversaries to calls to artists, October may be the dusk of the year, but it's a dawn of opportunities to create and enjoy art.

At the top of the list are the new digs for local husband-and-wife artistic team Jerri and Mark Lisk, who recently relocated to BODO and celebrated their inaugural First Thursday there this month. Their work, including Jerri's vibrant acrylic paintings and Mark's breathtaking landscape photography, is always on display at the Lisk Gallery, now located at 405 S. Eighth St.

Through October and November, Lisk Gallery is also showing the 50 Series exhibit, which features 50 of Jerri's 4-inch-by-5-inch paintings, all of which are based on travel sketches from around the American West.

Just down the BODO corridor, the R. Grey Gallery is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a new show, in which artists use 25 elements for each piece. R. Grey Gallery was founded to display custom jewelry made by founder Robert Grey Kaylor, but his artistic accessories aren't the only draw. The gallery also features work from approximately 150 artists, with media ranging from glass to furniture to woodwork.

Check out the anniversary party Friday, Oct. 21, from 5-9 p.m. at 415 S. Eighth St. Refreshments will be available along with tunes from Frim Fram 4.

Finally, following the autumn-as-harvest-time theme, Boise State's Visual Arts Center has issued a call to Idaho artists for a May 2012 food-themed exhibit called Sustenance. Working with the Treasure Valley Food Coalition, the Visual Arts Center will celebrate all things edible as a part of the Year of Idaho Food.

Artists interested in contributing to the Sustenance exhibit are asked to submit up to four digital images of existing artwork or proposals for new artwork. All pieces entered in the exhibit must somehow relate to food--be it food availability, hunger, food safety or agriculture. Submissions are due by Thursday, Dec. 1. More information and application forms are available at the Visual Arts Center's website at
