The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho (TAM) is honored to feature the Eagle Rock Art  Guild’s Permanent Collection in celebration of the Guild's 75th anniversary through August 12, 2023.  As the oldest art guild in Idaho, the organization has nurtured the development of generations of eastern  Idaho artists and the vibrant arts community enjoyed throughout the region today.  

The Guild’s Collection presently consists of more than 60 original pieces featuring work by founding  members Helen Aupperle, Fred Ochi, Ina Oyler and Suzanne Fonnesbeck. It also includes work by  generations of beloved Idaho artists who have continued to foster the artistic legacy of the Guild as  well as renowned American and European artists who came and taught locally at the Guild’s invitation.

"We are so grateful for the tremendous contributions to the arts the Guild has made in our community  over the years. Their artistic legacy throughout eastern Idaho cannot be overstated, and we, at TAM,  are delighted to join in paying homage to this pioneering organization," says TAM executive director,  Miyai Abe Griggs.

In addition to the exhibition at TAM, the art museum will also be joining in this year's Guild celebrations by providing youth art activities at the annual Sidewalk Art Festival July 22 – 23. The festival, a cherished  Idaho Falls tradition now in its 68th year, is back on the Snake River Greenbelt in 2023. Artist  applications are currently being accepted through June 30, 2023 at
