About the Idaho Falls Arts Council
Since its founding in 1990, the Idaho Falls Arts Council has committed to hosting an array of events, arts, performances, and venues to feature local and international talent within Idaho Falls and its surrounding areas. Now consisting of the Willard Arts Center, the historic Colonial Theater, the ARTitorium, and the Civic Center, these settings provide the means to have an annual impact of $2.7 million on the local community in the form of art galleries, 10 - 16 mainstage shows, 8 visual arts exhibitions, and community events all year long. The continued support of its staff members and volunteers accommodate the thousands of individuals who partake in the local arts community.

Artist Statement & Biography
"My work is an exploration of abstract figurative forms expressed through an emphasis of curvilinear lines and color. The current work is a reflection of the weight and intensity of our current time, exploring isolation, division, and conflict. Bold lines and an intense color palette confront the viewer. Currently I am using acrylic paints, markers, and inks to develop my paintings. The use of abstracted figurative forms create a “story” for the viewer to interpret. These figures are presented directly or are hidden within the layers of paint and line work."
Meredith Bobb is an abstract figurative artist from the Philadelphia area. She relocated to Albuquerque, NM in 2002, before moving to Idaho Falls in 2008. Bobb has a Bachelors of Fine Art with a concentration in drawing from Kutztown University, Pennsylvania. Her work has been exhibited in various parts of Philadelphia, Albuquerque, and Idaho Falls. The most current work utilizes a combination of acrylic inks, paints, and markers to create abstract figures and environments to tell each painting’s story.
