Thursday, November 22, 2018


Check out Sun Valley’s new gallery, as well as some pretty nifty wall art inspired by Sun Valley’s Bald Mountain at Friday’s Gallery Walk.

The Gallery Walk, also known as the Giving Walk or Apres Ski Giving Walk,will be held from 4 to 6 p.m.  (NOTE THE TIME) Friday, Nov. 23. Those taking part are encouraged to bring non-perishable food to deposit in donation boxes at each gallery. The food will be donated to The Hunger Coalition for its holiday food drive.

The new galley is that of Aspen’s Tim Mitchell, who has opened Mitchell Contemporary at 400 Sun Valley Road.

Kristina Grace has titled her works “Flying Squirrel” and “River Run.”

Mitchell will offer modern contemporary paintings and sculpture by established and emerging international and regional artists, such as Kristof Kosmowski, Malen Pierson, Boise’s D’Arcy Bellamy and Siri Hollander. His holiday exhibition will feature Kristof’s abstract works inspired by such artists as Monet.

Elsewhere, Friesen Gallery, located at Sun Valley Road at First Avenue, will feature work by its newest artist of Kristina Grace, a Newport Beach artist who has created

Grace has created a couple works featuring imaginative resin sculptures of skiers and snowboarders in action that she’s named “Flying Squirrel” and “River Run.”

She’s done similar works inspired by surfers at the beach. In fact, she applies her epoxy and polyester resins typically used for creating surfboards on her figurines at the local surf glassing shop.

Victoria Adams’ “Divide,” which can be seen at Gail Severn Gallery, is a 49.5-by-73.5-inch oil on linen.

“My art is a physical manifestation of joyous moments experienced with family, friends and nature,” said Grace. “I like working with multitudes of objects where their sheer numbers change the composition. This invites the viewer to step closer to see the whimsy in my work and maybe in life.”

Here are some of the other highlights of Friday’s Giving Walk:

  • Kneeland Gallery, 271 N. 1st Ave., will feature the work of local photographer Kevin Syms whose resin coated metallic prints of the Wood River Valley pop out.

    Syms found his love of photography in high school where he set up a darkroom in the basement of his family home. He studied under master photographer Howard Huff at Boise State University and later attended the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, Calif., before returning to Sun Valley to work as a sports and video photographer. He now specializes in fine art images inspired by nature and depicted on large-scale images printed on crystalline canvas. He will be in attendance during the opening reception.

    Theodore Villa’s “Fancy Dancer,” which can be seen at Broschofsky Galleries, is a 40-by-60-inch watercolor.

  • Gilman Contemporary, 661 Sun Valley Road, is featuring an exhibition titled “Do You See What I See?” The exhibition features a variety of works by gallery photographers and painters, including new works from James Austin Murray who paints only with ivory black oil paint.

    Murray maneuvers the paint so the canvas ripples and pulses, creating the illusion of movement.

  • Harvey Art Projects, 659 Sun Valley Road, is featuring art by Harry Tjutjuna, a respected aboriginal painter known for his depictions of heroic ancestral male figures and their auctions.
  • Gail Severn Gallery, 400 First Avenue North, will feature photographs and paintings “Honoring Our Landscape.” They are the works of such nationally renowned painters as Victoria Adams, James Cook, Theodore Waddell, Sheila Gardner, Michael Gregory and Laura McPhee.

    The gallery’s “Color IV” exhibition will feature Linda Christensen’s figurative paintings , Bean Finneran’s hand-rolled ceramic sculptures, Raphaelle Goethals’ encaustic mediums, Rana Rochat’s paintings featuring scrawling lines and rhythms of dots, Gary Komarin’s abstract paintings, Marcia Myers’ Italian-inspired works and Jane Rosen’s stone, bronze and glass animals.

    Sun Valley Photographer Kevin Syms took this nearly unreal photograph of the Sun Valley Opera House, which can be seen at Kneeland Gallery.

    Robb Putnam’s animal sculptures will be featured in Animalia V, along with works by Deborah Oropallo and Margaret Keelan.

  • Frederic Boloix Fine Arts, 351 Leadville Ave., features the works of contemporary artists, such as Julian Voss-Andreae, whose 10-foot sculpture of a Seated Woman is among the 10 finalists at the prestigious Art Priz competition in Grand Rapids.
