Idaho Triennial Artists

Geoff Kruegger

As some of you know I am a docent at the Boise Art Museum. One of the perks of being a docent is a "behind the scenes" look at the work and the artists showing at the museum.

On November 1st John Killmaster came and shared with us his 63 year perspective on being an Idaho artist. His work, Owyhee Canyon Lands is part of the Triennial Tour. Killmaster has donated 600 pieces of his artwork to the College of Southern Idaho, where it will be preserved.

On Nov. 8 Christine Raymond regaled us with her mysterious ventures with gold leaf. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Boise Art Museum and is also featured at the Idaho State Captitol.

Today we were privy to enter the studio of Geoff Krueger. He not only answered questions from the 30 docents but also demonstrated how he starts a painting, sketching with a brush using a very loose oil based medium. His studio will be open this coming First Thursday in December from 6-9. Stop by and see for your self his great talent.
