MUSIC AND MORE
Dive deeper into the city's music scene at the Boise 150 Sesqui-Shop with "Vibes: A Celebration of Music in Boise." Through photographs, ticket stubs, posters and other ephemera, you'll explore Boise's musical past, from the founding of the Boise Philharmonic in 1885 to the founding of Treefort Music Fest, which will hold it second annual festival March 21-24. Singer and songwriter Thomas Paul will kick off the month's series of live performances at the shop, 1008 W. Main St. Find a schedule of performances and events at Boise150.org.

Eclectic store/gallery/ workshop Bricolage turns 3 this month. Stop by 418 S. 6th St., and celebrate with owner Chelsea Snow this First Thursday and have a homemade cupcake. The first 50 people also will receive a birthday gift from Bricolage. Renegade banjo player Miss Lillie Mae Cane takes the stage with her show "Wayfaring Stranger" at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. Crane will bring some of her hand-printed show posters and fine art prints (that's her side gig) and other secret crafts. Plus, Archie's Place food truck will be on hand for eats.
Last month the Linen Gallery at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St., featured unfinished work by some of the area's most interesting artists. This month the gallery explores the flip side with "Inter/Change," which shows what happens when artists work together to complete a work of art. It features 19 pieces, each co-created by multiple artists working in a variety of mediums and coming from different perspective. Each artist initiated one piece and then passed it along to at least two others.
The idea from artist Matt Bodett is to bring together artists who might not otherwise get a chance to collaborate.
"Inter/Change" artists include Eli Crave, Anna Ura, Goran Fazil, Garth Claassen, Brenda Fisher, Kelly Packer, Ryan Mandell, Kirsten Furlong, Veiko Valencia and others.
REALSTEEL JEWELRY ART
Stop in at R. Grey Jewelry Gallery, 415 S. 8th St., in BoDo, and check out gallery owner and jeweler Robert Grey Kaylor's RealSteel Jewelry. Grey received widespread attention for his designs that combine roughly hewn railroad nails and reclaimed antique steel with delicate, semiprecious stones through the finesse of a true artist. In 2011, his designs won Kaylor the Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year Award at JA New York after 36 years in the business and put his Boise shop on the national map.
