We are pleased to highlight the work of artist Silas Thompson, our November 2018 artist of the month.
Silas Thompson was raised in Idaho. His passion for drawing and painting was instilled at an early age, fostered by his parents and manifest by the filling of countless sketchbooks and refrigerator magnets. Setting out on annual backpacking trips with his father, he began to treasure the distinct birthmarks and icons of beautiful rivers, valleys, and mountains that carve through the high desert and vast farmlands of the West. After college he continued his education by strengthening his fundamentals and work ethic in painting through five years of apprenticeships.
In 2017 the Pettitt Group purchased this original piece of artwork as part of our Supporting the Arts initiative. Throughout the year we give away fine art prints of this beautiful artwork as client closing gifts. The original will be auctioned in November 2018 at our annual “Art Night Out” at the Boise Art Museum.
We are excited to continue to promote local artists and support arts education! Learn more about our Supporting the Arts program and see all the 2018 artists here.
