Art Source Gallery Celebrates 25 Years in the Community

In November 1993, Art Source Gallery opened their doors to Treasure Valley residents with their fine selection in arts and gifts. Dr. John Lee and his wife LuAnne put out the original call to artists interested in establishing a gallery. With a 3 member jury panel, thirty-five artists we selected to show their artworks. We are now celebrating our 25th Anniversary as a non-profit artist collective and we invite all of Treasure Valley to come celebrate with us.
“Art Source Gallery has represented the best of Idaho Artists for the past 25 years and intends to carry on the tradition for years to come,” said Betty Hayzlett, President of Art Source Gallery. “We epitomize what small business means to the cultural of our community. Not only does Art Source provide unique, original and local fine arts and jewelry, but we provide community support to emerging artists through special events. Additionally, we give back to our community by supporting other non-profit organizations such as Women and Children’s Alliance Center and Idaho Humane Society with fund raising events. ”
Our celebration kicks off on November 1st with our monthly 1st Thursday celebration starting at 5:00pm to 9:00pm. Featured artist will be plein air artist, Clair Remsberg and 3D ceramic artist Genie Sue Weppner.. Other artists will be onsite doing demonstrations of their artwork. Photo Booth Boise will be on site, so bring a friend and make your evening picture perfect. Local musicians and wineries round out the evening to help us celebrate.
“There is something for everyone’s taste and style, plus we have artists who can customize art for individual preferences,” said Cyndy Lounsbury, Art Source Gallery Board of Directors member.
Art Source Gallery has had approximately 230 artists as owners over the past two and a half decades, featuring about 40 artists at any given time. Several of those that helped open the doors are still working artists at Art Source. Besides our monthly featured owners works, we have annual shows for our local high school artists to display and sell. In July we hold a juried art event for national artists.
