Local Artist Unveils New Works of Art at Victor City Art Gallery Reception

 Victor, ID -  January 24, 2024 – The Victor City Art Gallery is delighted to extend a warm invitation to the public for a special Reception and Open House honoring the talented local artist, Claire Peery. Join us on Tuesday, February 6th, from 4 PM to 6 PM at the Victor City Art Gallery, located on the 2nd floor above the US Bank at 138 N Main Street, Victor.

 The art show and sale continues through March 31 showcasing Claire's current series, titled "Anglers and Avatars," which explores the intricate world of fly fishing enthusiasts in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE), with a special focus on Teton Valley’s fly fishing culture, celebrating the profound connection between humans and the surrounding ecosystem.

 The exhibit includes a selection of fly fishing enthusiasts, both professional and amateur, each intricately portrayed through an ink rendering of their favorite hand-tied fly and a charcoal portrait. Claire's eye for detailed craftsmanship and her commitment to storytelling through art result in a compelling homage to the intersection between humans and nature.

 “The creators of fishing flies adhere to the functional requirements of beguiling fish. Yet the resulting fly is a beautiful, utterly human means of interacting with the natural landscape. The fly becomes a weaponized puppet, serving as the angler’s avatar in the water. By uniting worlds of sportsmanship and fine art, Anglers and Avatars highlights that both disciplines spring from the plight of our soulful selves engaging with the surrounding world.” explains Claire about her project.

 Claire Peery's artistic exploration began in the North Georgia mountains, and her journey has taken her to various corners of the United States. Holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from the University of Georgia, Claire has left her creative imprint in Georgia, Colorado, and now in the picturesque landscapes of Teton Valley.

 This Reception is open to the public, and we encourage art enthusiasts, community members, and supporters of the arts to join us for an opportunity to meet the artist, and enjoy refreshments and light bites.
