Swell is a membership based artist collective that promotes and curates contemporary art and artists through events, gallery shows and online exposure with the purpose of strengthening Boise's growing art scene.

It’s not often that we get the chance to see our most beloved ideas come to fruition. It’s a very special thing when all the pieces come together to make something that is greater than ourselves: a community. We’ve all worked very hard to build this artist collective. We’ve watched it grow and change. Many of our artists have been with us since the beginning, others we met along the way. We’ve tried lots of things, worn lots of hats, and worked our tails off to make it all happen. Managing the bottom line while continuing to grow is a challenging task, but a rewarding one. We believe in what we do and love what we do, and that’s why we're still kicking! It’s the reason that we’ve seen such great success and outstanding community support. We will continue to offer our members really cool opportunities to get their artwork seen and engage in the local art community while we work to streamline our business model in a way that can support both our community and our team.

We offer various services to our artists including the online contemporary art gallery with featured artist pages, invitational themed group shows, email campaigns, event listings, social media outreach and groups, and studio spaces (limited). We have no membership exclusivity clauses so artists can join more than one collective in order to increase exposure to their art. Membership dues are 100% reinvested in the business to pay a small staff, cover overhead costs like rent, utilities and supplies, as well as marketing costs and website hosting fees.

Your support is invaluable in our mission to make our community a very special place and allows us to continue to work together creating and sustaining a thriving arts community. www.swellboise.com

Keep us kicking! By supporting this campaign you will ensure that we can continue working to strengthen the arts community. By offering opportunities to working artists such as exhibitions and online exposure, we advocate for the value of art and artists in society. Your support is 100% reinvested into the business to pay a small staff, cover overhead costs like rent, utilities and supplies, as well as marketing costs and website hosting fees.

Swell-O-Vision Podcast! We are in the planning stages of producing a Swell podcast featuring artistic guests, dynamic conversations, tutorials and more. In order to launch the podcast we’ll need to cover many costs, from staff support and equipment to hosting fees.

Scholarships for Artists! We get to work with some truly talented people. Our Collective is membership-based and we rely completely on membership dues to support our efforts. Sometimes though, members aren’t always able to keep up with the costs of membership, or they can’t join at all because of their economic situation. We would love to be able to offer member scholarships to make sure that these people continue working in the arts and building their careers.
