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.

Artists with a Common Thread
Opening reception with the artists Thursday, June 6, 5-8 p.m. at the Willard Arts Center in conjunction with Idaho Falls Gallery Walk. Reception supported by KISU, FM-91, Your Ear to the World
In 2003, a group of quiltmakers exploding with creativity and desiring to express their ideas and aesthetics through the medium of art quilts, organized Artists With A Common Thread (A.C.T.).
A.C.T. encourages its members to share, critique, and improve their work. Through creative expression in the fiber arts, we experiment with diverse techniques and materials, and enhance the artistic abilities of the members while creating original and diverse works of art for the enjoyment of the community. Our focus is primarily art quilts, but has expanded to include the wider field of fiber arts and mixed media. The commonality of all our work remains a love of thread, fiber, and fabric.
