From Idaho to ItalyFriday, March 07, 2008 by Steve Hill
Filed under: Exhibits and Events

On Friday, March 14th, I will be showing my first artwork in my home town of Boise, Idaho, since 1970, at the Woman of Steel Gallery in Old Town Garden City, directly adjacent to Boise. Six original pastels (mostly painted plein air) from Idaho to Italy, with stops in between, will be displayed along with other artists' work in the gallery.

While I cannot be in attendance for this opening and show, I will be there in mind and spirit. I hope any Idaho friends, patrons and family will be able to stop-by the gallery on Friday, March 14th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM for the opening.

We are in the midst of final preparations and logistics for a 3 month painting trip to Portugal, Spain, France, Croatia and Italy beginning March 29th. We will be traveling mostly around the coastlines of these countries to do plein air painting, with side trips into many hill towns. Watch my web site and please pass this message onto friends who might have an interest in seeing new works as they progress. I will be doing ‘nearly daily' blogs and photos of actual paintings as the trip progresses and will be showing these new works in 3 galleries upon my return starting in early July: Crow Valley Gallery, at Eastsound, Orcas Island, Washington, The Gottlieb Gallery, Portland, Oregon and Woman of Steel Gallery in Boise, Idaho, next summer and fall. Openings and show dates will appear on my web site soon.

Hyde Park Revisited
Hyde Park Revisited
Pictured here is a piece titled “Hyde Park Revisited” from studies done last June on a trip to Boise. Much of the work in this show has been done similarly, either on-site or from studies as I travel around the northwest plus a couple of my favorite painting spots in Italy.

I am very pleased to be able to exhibit work in Irene Deelys' impressive gallery in Old Town Garden City and appreciate this opportunity to present my latest pieces. I am especially excited to be showing work in my home town again and look forward to hearing back from anyone who visits the show!

Woman of Steel Gallery is located at 3640 Chinden Blvd., Old Town Garden City, Idaho.

Gallery hours are: 11-5 Tuesday through Saturdays (open until 9:00 p.m. on Fridays).

Steve You know I will be thinking of you while on your trip. I will be watching this blog with great interest. Lynn and I plan another trip in a few years and on our agenda will be the coastal spots you mention as well as Sienna for a meal at the restaurant just off the Compo. By the way, if you get to Sienna, get me the name of the joint. John
