Boise Idaho, September 9, 2005 ~ The creators of The Cube will open the doors of Visual Arts Collective in the new Linen District at 1419 Grove Street! Full of creative, cultural energy and the passion of four locals involved in the arts, VaC has come together to support established and emerging artists, to offer a large and open space to show and to share a vision of artistic appreciation and enthusiasm with the community. Christophe Guigon, Corrin M Olson, Anneliessa Balk Stimpert and Samuel F Stimpert are thrilled to announce the opening of Boises newest and The Linen Districts first gallery!
With nearly 4000 square feet of exhibition space, VaCs premiere will feature cast metal, metal and mixed media sculpture. In addition to visual art, VaC will host musical performances. According to Anneliessa, Our goal with VaC is to offer the community an opportunity to experience many levels of art. Of course, all of our shows will be visual, but we are also bringing in audio by featuring musicians at each opening. We hope to blend music and art and offer our guests a unique experience that indulges all of the senses!
Visual artists featured are Flint Weisser, Angela Katona-Batchelor, VaC founding members Samuel F Stimpert and Corrin M Olson, and mentor to the artists, Francis Fox.
Musical artist is Steve Fulton, accompanied by the vocals of Christine Thomas and Jamie Vink on upright bass.
Christophe Guigon is pleased that VaC will debut with a group of such talented artists: Through history, artistic expression and movements are often based on individuals and the society in which they live. The individuals represented in our first show offer a unique perspective of artistic expression that we hope will help to broaden the perception of where art can take us.
