There’s an increasing number of musicians, visual artists and artisans who have chosen to set up shop in Garden City. Many of these artists are from Boise or other parts of the Treasure Valley. The trend has been led by a few visionaries who recognize two things about the town: the cheap real estate, and plenty of space to practice their passion.

In a 'selfie' dominated world, a group of people are headed to the historic town of Atlanta, Idaho this weekend to immerse themselves in the art of self-portraiture. Painter Kris Hargis is leading a workshop at the Atlanta School, a new arts organization that accepts artists of all ages and levels.

Idaho artist Bill Carman is never at a loss for ideas. They come to him at all hours. So he keeps a sketch book with him during the day and a pad of paper on his night stand. “Ideas come to me right before I fall asleep so I have to write them down,” he says. “And hopefully I can read them in the morning. More often than not I can’t.”
