CVA Galleries at SOU

M–F 8AM–9PM (varies)

The Center for Visual Arts galleries at SOU give students and community artists the opportunity to show their current work. The CVA Galleries are coordinated by a student Gallery Director and Assistants.

 

The Retzlaff Gallery is the white cube gallery with no windows and three blank walls for maximum hanging space. This gallery is perfect for installations and video. It is often reserved for BFA students to present their final body of work before graduating, but is also used by community and student artists depending on availability.

 

The Thorndike Gallery  is designated for local and out-of-state artists, as well as student work depending on availability. Abundant wall space  and three panels near the floor to ceiling windows provide the gallery with natural light and high visibility to passerby.

 

The Meyer Memorial, Art Department Chairs, and Boise-Cascade Galleries may be used for student artwork either in single, group or classroom exhibits. These areas are also used by local schools and selected community groups as an alternative space for their artwork.

The Shape of Memory

Madeleine Farmer

BFA Thesis Exhibition 

 

Memory and the act of remembering remain placed in both the subconscious and the conscious parts of our brain. While some memories are concrete, others are less so. In my exploration of my own memory I aim to immerse my audience in the concrete settings/locations within my mind, and invite them to explore the less concrete moments created through basic geometric shapes.

Art Department Chairs Gallery (Marion Ady Building): 

Stitched Nostalgia

Madeline Pallant

Solo Exhibition

Nostalgia is an interesting thing: widely experienced, yet never precisely the same. Miniscule things can flood us with the precise feeling of joyful reminiscence. What we take in as children shapes and molds what we put out into the world as adults. Through the medium of embroidery, I have stitched that feeling into these pieces. They seek to open that connection between what built me and who I am today.
