The idea of hosting gallery space in the Boise arm of our architecture and engineering firm was born during the programming phase for our new offices. We facilitated multiple sessions, asking Cushing Terrell colleagues: “What is important to you regarding your working environment?” We focused on three areas: the physical environment, culture, and an “anything goes” wishlist.

Through this process, we learned the arts and a connection to the community were among top priorities. Rather than showcasing our own work, we decided to highlight pieces from accomplished artists within our region. Our overarching goal: to inspire the public to visit our office and give artists the opportunity to display their work. We encourage featured artists to be innovative and exploratory — mirroring the culture we enjoy at Cushing Terrell.

Our firm commissioned Gallery Cushing Terrell’s first exhibitor, Cody Rutty, for a piece that still hangs in Boise’s main conference room.

Featured Artist: Dave Thomas

I’m an abstract painter; I have been painting for 55 years. From my daily studio practice comes discovery, meaning, content, questions, what’s real or unreal, etc. My work projects energy, process, and humor. All I have to say comes from that daily practice, not a preconceived agenda.

I’m a process painter looking for an excuse to paint, and materials I find often inform the work itself. I’m not an art supply store fan, but Home Depot or hardware stores are my kind of place.

Painting is a visual language and it’s not easy to put into words. It’s an emotional experience. I’m looking for some new way of painting or what painting can be. This body of work is about saying more with less, adding and subtracting as the painting progresses.

Every day is a new day in my studio practice… Today’s work informs me for tomorrow’s.
