The Whole Salmon
commissioned by The Sun Valley Center for the Arts
Painting locations: Idaho
Tony Foster created The Whole Salmon as part of a larger group exhibition at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Idaho. For this journey, Foster produced a chronological series of paintings that depicted his experience traveling down the Salmon River. During the month-long rafting trip—one of his first river journeys—Foster encountered a surprising variety of landscape features including steep canyons, vast flatlands, and green meadows. Each landscape painting pays homage to the Salmon River in some form. The souvenirs that accompany each watercolor reflect on the history of the river, from prehistoric times to present day. The pieces from this journey were exhibited alongside the work of three other artists—a writer, a photographer, and a composer—whose pieces reflected on the river and the people who live along it.
