Treefort 2021, Boise Idaho — The Artfort galley is nested in LED. Guests were asked to take their shoes off to view the art pieces. With shoes left on the mat, guests were allowed to roam and view the artwork that was hung along a wall. Among the artists featured were Walter Gerald, Heather Tomlinson, and Critter- Chris Alvarez.

Walter Gerald is a multidisciplinary artist that uses unconventional forms of media to communicate myth and folklore. His piece in the gallery drew upon wild west imagery.

Heather Tomlinson’s focus is on clothing and fiber art. The work displayed in the gallery were intricate fiber pieces. One piece was fully black and white, with a little chaos mixed in. The other was full of muted, earthy colors organized like a cobblestone path.
