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 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.   

Sue Latta

Swell Artist Collective’s Sue Latta has been a working artist for over 20 years. She has a BFA in Photography and an MFA in Sculpture. Her work has been collected throughout the United States and Canada, and is included in the Permanent Collection at the University of Nevada Reno, Boise State University, Boise Visual Chronicle, Idaho Shakespeare Festival and numerous private collections. She has done a number of public projects and received grants from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, the Boise City Arts Commission and the Alexa Rose Foundation. She has served as an Artist in Residence for the LiveStrong Foundation at the Saint Alphonsus Cancer Care Center, the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY and the Boise City A.I.R. program. Latta is currently an adjunct professor of art at Boise State University. She also owns The Sculpture Studio, a private teaching studio where she teaches a variety of 3-dimensional disciplines. As an artist she is tireless, prolific, and accomplished. She is a consummate craftsman, working seamlessly across a variety of media including photography, metal and wood fabrication, and casting everything from bronze and aluminum to plastic and paper. Latta is also an innovator. She developed an image transfer process, which allows the transfer of an inkjet print onto urethane resin thus transforming the photograph into a sculptural medium. Her current body of artwork proves that she won’t settle into the tried and true, she is going to continue to push the boundaries of whatever material she’s working with and create work that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. http://suelatta.com/
