Women in American Impressionism: Three Masterworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum
Boise Art Museum announces the presentation of three Impressionist masterworks from the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum: Mary Cassatt’s “Spanish Dancer Wearing a Lace Mantilla,” Frederick Carl Frieseke’s “Nude Seated at Her Dressing Table,” and Childe Hassam’s “Tanagra (The Builders, New York).” Each of these portraits provides a distinctive view of women at the turn of the twentieth century, filtered through the lens of the artist’s experience.
Outside the Lines
Outside the Lines is the fourth and final exhibition inspired by Boise Art Museum’s Art Cards, a project designed to encourage engagement with artworks in BAM’s Permanent Collection. Based on the Art Card deck True Colors, this exhibition explores the ways in which artists employ the elements of art and principles of design to convey mood, provoke emotional responses, and communicate with viewers.
