Deck Your Walls @ Gilman Contemporary
Jan 1 – Jan 17 all-day
Deck Your Walls @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
Each December Gilman Contemporary celebrates the diversity of the artists they bring to Sun Valley with a dynamic group exhibition. This year the gallery teases future summer exhibitions including Carmen McNall and Mayme Kratz, who will have solo exhibitions in 2023. Also featured in December’s group exhibit are gallery newcomers Matt Duffin and Ghislain Brown-Kossi. Matt Duffin explores the themes of solitude and irony through moody and “neurotically meticulous” encaustic wax paintings. He uses the stark contrast of extreme light and shadow, as well as strong compositional strategies, to enhance his implied narratives creating works that are simultaneously dark and humorous. Ghislain Brown-Kossi’s childhood in France and Ivory Coast heritage feed his work as an archeological pop artist. Mixed dialects and cultures inspire his colorful, bold, and geometric work with hieroglyphic symbols emerging through sand. Gilman will also present works by local artist Jill Lear, Brazilian artist Thai Mainhard, and Hunt Slonem whose art can be found in the permanent collections of 250 museums around the world including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Pictured work is Carmen McNall’s “Enfold in a Greater Space #3”, acrylic on hand carved wood panel.

Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass 5:00 pm
Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass @ The Community Library
Jan 9 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass @ The Community Library
Dr. Letitia Chambers will present a program discussing glass art created by American Indian artists. Chambers is the curator of the exhibit “Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass,” which is slated to travel to ten major museums around the U.S. over the next four years. She also authored the beautifully illustrated book of the same name, which is now in its third printing. The exhibit includes 120 glass art creations and tells the story of how glass art came to Indian Country. Leading glass artist Dale Chihuly was the first to introduce glass blowing to American Indian students, which has led over the past 50 years to the creation of an exceptional body of work. In turn, Chihuly was influenced by Native arts. The reciprocal nature of this influence, with Chihuly’s own art enhanced by the inspiration of Native design, is a serendipitous result. Chihuly’s first Native-inspired works in glass were created in 1975, shortly after he created a glass art curriculum and taught at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe. Chihuly’s first Native-inspired works in glass incorporated glass threads fused onto the surface of blown cylinders to create designs based on patterns in Navajo weaving. ...

The Color of Sound
The Color of Sound @ Sun Valley Museum of Art
Jan 13 – Mar 18 all-day
The Color of Sound @ Sun Valley Museum of Art
The Color of Sound explores the relationship between art and synesthetic experience. It features artwork by artists who are synesthetes – who experience synesthesia, the phenomenon by which certain people experience one sense through another – as well as work by artists who, though not synesthetes, seek to create synesthetic experiences for viewers. Synesthesia can take a wide variety of forms (perceiving letters or numbers as colors, for example, or associating a word with a scent or taste), but perception of sound as color or as shape has been particularly powerful for artists who have sought to convey synesthetic experiences. The artwork in the exhibition ranges from paintings, drawings and sculptures inspired by the synesthetic experience of music to film projections and an immersive installation.

Burn - New Photographs by Tuck Fauntleroy @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
“I like to think of the winter season as a time for the land itself to rest. Zero human activity, the silence of falling snow in one of the most remote places on earth is enchanting and reflective.” -Tuck Fauntleroy Fauntleroy’s focus for his Burn series are wildfire affected regions in Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. They represent a mixed perspective with some images shot aerially and others shot from the ground. Like much if his other work, the aerial images were captured flying over the territory via small single engine airplanes from an open window for an unobstructed lens. Burn is timely and relevant in the current environment of climate change and the proliferation of recent fires across the western US and globally. The massive 1988 Yellowstone fires were a wake-up-call and significant warning of destruction and foreshadowing of the cost of climate events. Warming, drought, and the resulting fires have never been more dangerous. The photographs are careful compositions of positive and negative space while capturing the elegant lines and shapes created by a natural landscape scared by flame. Critical to the series is the the idea of taking something more commonly perceived as unsightly, ...

Harmonic Tension -New Paintings by Thai Mainhard @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
“My work is very emotional by nature. I rely on colors to set the atmosphere and play off of each other like our emotions do inside of us.” -Thai Mainhard Brazilian born painter Thai Mainhard’s practice harnesses her own raw and immediate need to create. Each abstract painting combines expressive mark making with dense blocks of color exploring the opposing forces that make up our lives. Mainhard encounters human nature, exploring happiness, frustration, surprise, connection, spirituality, and overall thinking processing. Each of her works is emotional; it is a lush expression of her inner jungle. Going through a deep internal process, the artist creates artwork that represents human nature’s fragility and opposes it to the robustness of emotions and feelings.
