Connie Wood | Carl Rowe

"In many paintings for this show, Carl Rowe has shifted his sights slightly higher than usual. The weather has become an important element in addition to the Idaho landscape. It is treated as a dramatic element, reflecting our varying responses to our natural surroundings."

Connie Wood’s encaustic work is part of her ongoing explorations of antiquated processes. In her current experiments, she's referring to techniques used by the Greeks to paint the Fayum funeral portraits in the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D.
A sense of place is at the heart of Connie’s work. While wildlife plays a key role in her compositions, her use of formal elements and sly incorporation of human characteristics leave her encaustic paintings open to wide interpretation. Connie has taught thousands of students over the course of her career as an art instructor using a vast variety of media and referencing artists, techniques, and movements to broaden her students’ sensibilities. Connie has maintained a professional show record for the past 25 years and received a number of awards.

Her work can be found in private, corporate, and public collections.

Launch - Stacie Chappell

Launch - Paintings by Stacie Chappell
                   June 4th- June 30th 2015

Opening Reception, June 4th 5-9 PM
Artist Talk at the Gallery, June 20th, 2015 1-3 PM

Stacie Chappell’s vibrant paintings suggest movement and transition of form within spatial abstract landscapes. Drawing from the history of Abstract Expressionism and Formalist painting she layers each canvas with different application techniques; pouring and dying the canvas to doodling with markers or using handmade and manufactured stencils with acrylic spray. The artist say’s, “For me, my work has become much more complicated over the years as I continue to build upon a number of techniques, I want to include them all in the final piece.” While the artist draws upon intuition and memory for her work, Launch displays several new works inspired from snorkeling at the live reef in the Florida Keys this year.

Current representation includes Gallery IMA, in Seattle Washington, with past exhibitions and collections in; Portland,
Seattle, Kansas City, Missouri, and Boise, Idaho.

Stacie is Adjunct Faculty in the Art Department and Boise State University and Lake Washington Institute of Technology in Kirkland, WA.

February Exhibits

Pipe Dream - D'Arcy Bellamy
Acts of Love - A six-artist exhibition of three dimensional artworks.


February 1-28
opening reception First Thursday February 5th 6-9


Pipe Dream - any fantastic notion, hope, or story.  In February at Gallery Five18 in Boise D’Arcy Bellamy- a Boise Artist-will showcase his unique style of creating abstract metal sculpture from steel pipe.

Bellamy’s work is raw and refined at the same time.  His work celebrates art that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete - an ancient eastern design aesthetic that is often referred to as Wabi-Sabi.  Although he is dedicated and serious about his craft, much of Bellamy’s work is infused with a playfulness that attempts to surprise the viewer.   

A six-artist exhibition of three dimensional artworks. In addition to an incredible show, join us at the gallery and enter our ACTS of LOVE Challenge. You are invited to share an Act of Love:___________ , in exchange for a chance to draw for a work of art created and donated by one of our twenty artists.

Events this month:
opening | February 5, 2015 | 5-9pm
cocktail party | Feburary 13, 2015 | 4-6pm
valentine's day show | February 14, 2015 | 10-3pm
