Southern California-based artist Adonna Khare doesn’t plan her works before creating them, but she’ll let you in on her creative process. You will have a handful of opportunities to watch Khare sketch out her installation on the Boise Art Museum’s wall. The American artist uses the everyday pencil to create often-absurd menageries of exotic animals. Would a zebra and tiger wrap each other up in a harmonious embrace? Not likely. Does it manifest as a fascinating composition packed with emotional punch? Definitely. The exhibit will run until May 29.
Opening celebration with Adonna Khare: 5:30-8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 5, Boise Art Museum, 670 Julia Davis Drive, $10 general, free for BAM members. RSVP event. boiseartmuseum.org
