The Idaho Commission on the Arts and The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho will present an Idaho women gearmakers showcase and demonstration on April 6, 2019 from 1-5 pm at The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho in Idaho Falls. A range of traditional and contemporary art forms will be featured in this showcase including hat making, boot making, saddle making, woven saddle blankets, silver engraving and jewelry, oil and watercolor painting, and a wide assortment of leather craft like chaps, chinks, headstalls, and other tack. Artists will be on hand to discuss their work and answer questions about technique, method, and inspiration. This is a rare opportunity to meet and greet with both established and up-and-coming artists and witness some of the best cowboy arts Idaho has to offer.
Free and open to the public.
The artist showcase and demonstration culminates the inaugural Idaho Cowgirl Congress. The showcase will spotlight the work of Congress participants either as recent completed projects or as in-process demonstrations.
