Formed in November of 2015 and managed by artists Julia GreenNoble HardestyKelly Knopp, Stuart Holland, and Victor A. Jimenez, 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 five 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.   

Pat Kilby

Swell Artist Collective’s Pat Kilby paints original oil paintings on canvas. His paintings have been called 'quirky', 'skewed' and 'cartoony' and are always unique and colorful. He paints primarily landscape and cityscape paintings of Idaho and other locations in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada. He’s been drawing and creating art most of his life and painted his first oil painting on canvas when he was 17 years old. He studied English and fine arts at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Canada where he first learned oil painting from Tony Urqhaart and Art Green. In South Korea, he also studied woodblock printmaking with master printmaker, Ju Jeong-Hee. In 2006, he began a slow return to oil painting and a year later established a studio at his home in Boise, Idaho where he now lives with his wife and son. Kilby is also a member of BOSCO, a group of painters and artists living in Boise, Idaho. www.patkilby.com
