Swell Artist Collective is an open studio and Art Gallery located in Boise's historic downtown. Formed in November of 2015 and managed by artists Noble Hardesty, Stuart Holland, and Cody Rutty, Swell is located on the lower level of the Old Mercantile Building in Boise's BoDo district. 

By combining their individual artistic practices and ideas into a common space, the artists' mission revolves around creating a vibrant studio and gallery environment that is open to the public and intent on helping bolster the community's rapidly-growing arts culture. Swell will be host to both First Thursday and independently organized artistic events while maintaining hours of operation during which people can visit.

Tony Rios very rarely paints with an agenda, and doesn’t attempt to explain his work, he believes that art can have more than one meaning, that it is subjective and views differ from one person to the next. So he leaves it to the viewer to go away with whatever the images mean to them. Music plays an influential part in his creations, inspiring both images and concepts.
