Rick Friesen: January 2019 Artist of the Month

We are pleased to highlight the work of artist Rick Friesen, our January 2019 artist of the month.

Rick Friesen is an artist working with all mediums, with a focus on oil painting. Friesen’s latest projects are traditional oil paintings of landscapes depicting some of the community’s favorite places around Boise. Friesen finds inspiration for these works by taking pictures of scenes while out walking in the city. Friesen’s work extends past gallery walls. Recently Rick Friesen began working on larger scale pieces; starting with large murals in the alley behind his home in North Boise.

In 2018 the Pettitt Group purchased this original piece of artwork as part of our Supporting the Arts initiative. Throughout the year, we 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.
