    Name: Portals - One Night Boise Viewing
    Date: April 5, 2018
    Time: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM MDT
    Event Description:
    The fourteen 88”x48” landscape paintings by Boise artist Rachel Teannalach each depict an iconic landscape within 150 miles of Boise. They are intended to be experienced as “portals” to the diverse and beautiful landscapes surrounding Idaho’s capitol city. The format for this body of work is inspired by the Piazzoni murals at the de Young Museum in San Francisco (The Land and The Sea), which depict the Northern California hills and coast in a multi-panel, panoramic form. Teannalach felt that such a tribute should exist of southern Idaho as well. Though the collection is a geographically cohesive collection, each painting has been created as a stand-alone piece and is available for individual purchase. Painting locations include the Sawtooth and White Cloud Mountains, Bruneau Sand Dunes, Hell’s Canyon, and the Boise Foothills. The medium is oil and wax on linen-stretched panels. Rachel Teannalach is a contemporary landscape painter based in Boise, Idaho. Originally from northern New Mexico, she has also painted extensively in northern California. Her traveling pack has taken her from Marin County to Iceland and many places between. For Teannalach, painting provides a way to step out of the frenzy that life so easily becomes, to appreciate both stillness and the beauty of passing time. Her work inspires viewers to leave, in W.B. Yeats’ words, “a little space for the rose-breath to fill.” Teannalach's focus over the last several years has been collaborations with conservation organizations, supporting their efforts to preserve the lands she loves to paint. She is known especially for her "tinyExpanse" daily paintings. More info at www.teannalach.com
