Karen Bubb: April 2019 Local Artist of the Month

We are pleased to highlight the work of artist Karen Bubb, our April 2019 artist of the month.

Karen Bubb is a visual artist working primarily with encaustic (hot wax) painting. Bubb’s professional life has been dedicated to many organizations around Boise.  As City of Boise’s Cultural Planner, she leads the implementation of Boise’s Master Cultural Plan. For nineteen years prior, Karen Bubb worked as Boise’s Public Arts Manager to evolve the City’s public art collection. Bubb is also a vital part of various organizations such as Surel’s Place. She teaches Design Thinking and Creativity at Boise State University for the Honors College and the Executive MBA program.

In 2018 the Pettitt Group purchased this original piece of artwork as part of our Supporting the Arts initiative. Throughout the year, we will give away fine art prints of this beautiful artwork as client closing gifts. The original will be auctioned in November 2019 at our annual “Art Night Out & Auction” at the Boise Art Museum.
