“Every Day Art”

“Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist.” —Pablo Picasso

My first art experience was in preschool.  Every week we go to put on these weird things called “smocks”, which were really just oversized men’s shirts put on backwards, and we go to go outside – also a big plus as a kid – and finger paint.  Whoever came up with that idea, my hats off to you.  What I liked about it than and remember now was the freedom.  No instruction, just dip you fingers in paint and go, on endless reams of paper laid out on the sidewalk.

“Expression to Form: Abstract Artists of the Wood River Valley Studio Tour”

SVPN Magazine (Studio Tour Media Sponsor) Article
June, 2018 Issue

 Abstract art is like a secret language. It is a means to give a visual language to experiences where words fail to articulate what we feel, but cannot see. The expression of the familiar, interpreted through a distorted lens, abstract art moves us in a different way than other forms of art, perhaps because one must use our eyes, not to see, but to feel. Four abstract artists who call the Valley home will be welcoming visitors into their studios during this summer’s Wood River Valley Studio Tour. Marybeth Flower, Susan Hall, Lee Higman, and Donna Pritchard each bring their own unique approach to form and abstraction.

Peeking Behind The Screen

Idaho Mountain Express August 17, 2016 Issue

4th annual Wood River Valley Studio Tour offers glimpse into artistic process.

When Ketchum artist Suzanne Hazlett spearheaded the first Wood River Valley Studio Tour in 2012, she and co-organizer and fellow artist Mary Williams each made 20 calls a night trying to find local artists to participate.

They thought that would be the easy part—asking artists they knew about to tell them about other local artists they knew. “We were meeting artists throughout the valley who thought they were the only ones,” Hazlett said. Organizing that first tour and establishing a database of local artists in the process was a laborious task.“We had to do a lot of groundwork,” Hazlett said.
