Steve Jensen | Turning Tides @ Friesen+Lantz Fine Art | Ketchum | Idaho | United States
12:00 am
OPENING + 1ST ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION: 10 February 5-7PM GALLERY WALK: 17 February 5-7:30PM Steve Jensen’s work offers glimpses into our cultural past through found objects, recycled materials, and a deep desire to take what we discard today and make it sacred and beautiful for tomorrow. Descended from a long line of Norwegian fishermen, Jensen uses the same boat making tools of his forefathers when creating his work. His sculptures appear ageless, as if dredged from unknown depths instead of being made of recycled glass, metal and found objects. “I have been using recycled materials for over 35 years. I pick steel off the beach. I love finding salvaged boat materials, especially portholes and sailboat parts. It’s always exciting to figure out how to make something beautiful out of something that was discarded.” The message of Jensen’s boats is cross-cultural and reflects the influence of his extensive travels, including Egypt, Kenya, Tahiti, India, China, Thailand, Antarctica and Iceland. Those who view his work may recall their own ancestry, regardless of the origin of their family line. “For me the boats are meant to symbolize a voyage or journey, perhaps it is the voyage to the other side, or the journey into ...

Friesen+Lantz 1st Anniversary Celebration - STEVE JENSEN @ Friesen+Lantz Fine Art | Ketchum | Idaho | United States
5:00 pm
Friesen+Lantz Fine Art’s first anniversary celebration will feature new work from environmentally conscious artist Steve Jensen. Based in Seattle WA, Jensen’s work offers glimpses into our cultural past through found objects, recycled materials, and a deep desire to take what we discard today and make it sacred and beautiful for tomorrow. Descended from a long line of Norwegian fishermen, Jensen uses the same boat making tools of his forefathers when creating his work. His sculptures appear ageless, as if dredged from unknown depths instead of being made of recycled glass, metal and found objects. “I have been using recycled materials for over 35 years. I pick steel off the beach. I love finding salvaged boat materials, especially portholes and sailboat parts. It’s always exciting to figure out how to make something beautiful out of something that was discarded.” Cultivating work that has a deeper meaning, whether by raising awareness of our environmental impact or celebrating the interconnectedness of the human condition, Friesen+Lantz vows to continue bringing insightful, personal, and powerful art to Sun Valley.

Creating an Inclusive Outdoors while Elevating Latino Environmental Activism @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
Who comes to mind when you think about environmental activism? Do you think back to John Muir, or to present day activists like Greta Thunberg? The organization Green Latinos is working to include the Latino/a/x voice and story to the forefront. “Environmental stewardship is part of our cultural heritage. Outdoor activities like fishing, gardening, camping, and celebrating in nature bring us joy and connect us to our deeply rooted traditions. We honor and celebrate our rich culture and our crucial role in the global social fabric through our stories and spirit. We continue the work of movements that came before us, defending our autonomy, building upon our cultural assets, and celebrating our identity.” – Green Latinos The Wood River Land Trust and The Community Library are excited to bring Green Latinos’ Public Land Director, Olivia Juarez to talk with the community about Latinx leadership in conservation. A lifelong Utahn based in Salt Lake City, and through their work with Latino Outdoors, Utah Coalition of La Raza, and the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, Olivia has nurtured Latinx joy and leadership in conserving nuestra tierra pública. Olivia was recognized as one of “10 Under 40” in 2021 by the National Parks Conservation ...

Expanding our Community Green Heart as our Valley Changes @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
What happens to a community as it faces the changes that come with growth and change? As we’ve all felt the effects of Idaho being the fastest growing state in the nation, many of us have wondered what lies ahead for our community. Will wildlife still wander down Main Street? Will recreation still be as memorable? Will this valley still be the kind of place we all love to live, work, and play in? This fall, at the Sun Valley Economic Forum, Dr. Jaap Vos gave a talk about the incredibly difficult conversation and community discussions that need to happen in the face of growth and change. This moving presentation was a highlight of the Sun Valley Economic Forum, and has prompted plenty of discussion. In a recent “Our View” opinion from the Idaho Mountain Express, we’re reminded that we’ve had to navigate these hard questions before. For Blaine County and its cities in the 1970s, adapting to change was a do-it-yourself project. Unlike nearly any other communities in the nation, they adopted zoning that kept commercial development off the highway, development off its hillsides and protected downtown vitality and livability. This is why the Sun Valley area is still ...
