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 annually raise $2.7 million toward 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 volunteers and over 60 staff members accommodate the thousands of individuals who partake in the local arts community.

"Art can capture a moment, an emotion, a story or a person in their entirety."
Samantha Gresham is a senior at Idaho Falls High School, where she has been named "Artist of the Year" for two years in a row, and has worked as an intern at The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho for three years. Her large, expressionist portraits have been accepted into the 2014 and 2015 National Juried Exhibitions at the Willard Arts Center, alongside works by established, professional artists from across the country. In 2014, she also received an Honorable Mention and the IFAC Purchase Award for her painting, Spring. This will undoubtedly be the first of many solo exhibitions for this talented young artist.
