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.

Innovations in digital art from three Idaho artists: Brian Torvik, Helen Farrell, Betty Mallorca
Tiny Jelly • Ann & Jeff Riedesel • Kliss McNeel & Maria Miles
Brian Torvik blends his graphic design artistry with his unique photographic eye to bring to life a surreal but realistic storyline. His modified photographs are intriguing, awe-inspiring, and a bit dangerous, all with a humorous wink.
Helen Farrell fell into digital art by accident, by experimenting with an image processing program. Her work transform shapes and textured objects into mythical, vibrant, and thought-provoking images that exist somewhere in-between the representational and the abstract.
Betty Mallorca began creating original digital paintings in 2018. She paints colorful landscapes, interiors, and figurative work, revealing simple moments that captivate her attention.
