Local “Tour” Artist Gets National Attention

Idaho Mountain Express (IME) February 17, 2016 Issue

Artwork by Poo Wright-Pulliam selected for exhibition in Washington, D.C.

In honor of the centennial of the National Park Service and the 50th anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts, the two agencies are celebrating in tandem by giving grants for artists to create original art that represents engagement with the parks.

Local wildlife artist Poo Wright-Pulliam was selected to be an artist-in-residence at Craters of the Moon National Monument near Arco, and spent 21 days between April and July living and working in the monument. Wright-Pulliam produced 15 works of art inspired by the residency. They will be exhibited at the Craters visitor center in May.

She also submitted a black scratchboard piece titled “A Night on the Moon” for consideration in a national exhibition, “Flora of the National Parks.” The piece was selected among hundreds of entries and will be shown as part of the exhibition, which opens tomorrow, Feb. 18, in the conservatory at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C.

Studio Tour Issues Call for Artists

4th Annual Wood River Valley Studio Tour

August event is the largest of its kind in the state

For one weekend in August, local artists from Bellevue, Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley open their studios and give visitors a rare glimpse into their creative spaces. This event, which is free and open to the public, lets the community see works in progress and learn about the creative processes of artists whose work they usually see only in a finished form in a gallery, art fair or public location.

“Just to be present in the space, to see the various media, the tools and implements, gives the visitor a greater understanding and appreciation of how a work of art is created,” said Suzanne Hazlett, co-founder of the Wood River Valley Studio Tour. “The artists are opening up the most sacred, intimate places.”
