The kiln-formed glass symbols in "Code" were inspired by alchemy.

Amy Westover is one of the 40 artists in the Boise Art Museum’s Idaho Triennial. In it, she has three pieces, including “Code.”

The kiln-formed glass symbols were inspired by alchemy. Ancient alchemists sought to transform lesser metals into gold. “Alchemy also is a metaphor for transforming one’s self into your divine self,” Westover says.


Through April 27 at Boise Art Museum, 670 Julia Davis Drive.
