Swell Artist Collective is an open studio and Art Gallery located in Boise, Idaho’s historic downtown, on the lower level of the Old Mercantile Building in The BoDo District.

By combining individual artistic practices and ideas into a common space, their 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.

Emily Hanigan

Swell Artist Collective’s Emily Hanigan is creatively drawn towards color, simple design, eco-friendly products, and art that gives her peace or makes her smile. She is inspired by other artists who have made it their goal to fearlessly take charge of their own creativity and life. Home design, playing the piano, yoga and comedy are also her jam. Hanigan started her art career as a college student and received her BFA in Art Education from Boise State University in 2011. She creates artwork that is influenced by her surroundings, her individual perception of the world and her specific life experiences. In exploring these elements, she is searching for a state of personal contentment. Each brush stroke and mark made is an extension of herself. Often utilizing layers, she examines the variety of ways we live and the variety of paths our lives can take. In her free time you’ll also find her playing board games with her wife and relaxing in their yard with their corgi-lab.
