After more than three decades at the forefront of Boise’s art scene, artist Surel Mitchel has died at the age of 67.
Barbara Robinson takes a six inch sculpture from her shelf. Surel Mitchel gave it to her. It’s a nude female torso and was one of Mitchell’s many experiments.
Barbara Robinson “ And it had to be cooked in her oven and it let off all these fumes, it had some kind of toxic resin so she decided maybe that wasn’t something she wanted to make more of.”
