Exhibitions in Hailey
From 2006 through 2016, The Center presented exhibitions of work by local and regional artists in its Hailey facility. These exhibitions linked to The Center’s exhibitions in its Ketchum museum space.
WRHS Exhibition: Redesigning Art History
October 22 – November 19, 2015
Last year, Wood River High School art teacher Betty Ervin asked her students to research three artists and to incorporate elements of each artist’s work into a single painting. The resulting artworks exceeded all her expectations. This exhibition features the students’ reimagining of their favorite artists’ imagery as original artworks.
Join us for an opening celebration on Thursday, October 22, from 5–6:30pm.
This exhibition is part of The Center’s BIG IDEA project Sleight of Hand.
Janet Starr: Abstract Landscapes
September 11 – November 13, 2014
From white cloth, Hailey fiber artist Janet Starr uses dye and a variety of techniques to produce artwork that is bold in color and graphic in design. Her work is an abstraction of the natural world, evoking forms like mesas, riverbeds and aspen groves.
This exhibition is part of The Center’s BIG IDEA project Forests, Foraging and Fires.
Vita Brevis Press: A Printmaking Workshop
March 13 – July 3, 2014
What is a master printer? How do printers work with artists to create prints? This exhibition traces this collaborative partnership through prints made at master printer Jen Galpin’s Vita Brevis Press, a workshop in Hailey. In addition to Galpin, participating artists include Kate Browning, Margery Friedlander, Abby Grosvenor, Annie May and Gay Bawa Odmark.

Behind the Seen
September 19 – November 21, 2013
Behind the Seen explores the pivotal role of design in Company of Fools productions. Featuring examples from 17 years of plays, the exhibition provides a backstage view into the way designers use sound, lighting, costuming, props and set design to transform the space of the stage. Visitors will follow the design process from sketches and models to fully-realized performances captured in Kirsten Shultz’s production photographs.

Home Front: Higher Ground
March 14 – July 4, 2013
Part of The Center’s multidisciplinary project Home Front, this exhibition features artwork made by men and women who have participated in Higher Ground Sun Valley‘s rehabilitation programs for wounded veterans alongside Hailey photographer Matthew Hayes‘ photographs of Higher Ground Sun Valley participants. Veterans are sharing artwork they make as part of their therapy, ranging from photography to quilts, handmade knives, pens and wooden bowls.
Higher Ground Sun Valley uses therapeutic recreation to facilitate a change in perspective, giving injured service members the physical skills, confidence, and coping strategies necessary for a successful reintegration into their families and home communities. They serve military personnel and veterans with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other polytrauma.
