Exhibitions in Hailey

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.

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.

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.
