A collaboration with Boise artist Rachel Teannalach
Advocates for the West is pleased to partner with Boise artist Rachel Teannalach on her new series, “Confluence.” Each painting depicts a scene along the 900-mile salmon migration route from Idaho’s Stanley River Basin to where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean in Oregon. The series will be shown in towns along the migration route throughout 2020, and 25% of all sales will benefit our work protecting wild salmon and their habitat.

Rachel Teannalach is a contemporary landscape painter based in Boise, Idaho. Originally from northern New Mexico, she has also painted extensively in northern California. Her traveling pack has taken her from Marin County to Iceland and many places between.
Her work is guided by the belief that the observation of nature revives our recognition of beauty and restores our sense of belonging in the natural world. For Teannalach, painting provides a way to step out of the frenzy that life so easily becomes, to appreciate both stillness and the beauty of passing time. Her work inspires viewers to leave, in W.B. Yeats’ words, “a little space for the rose-breath to fill.”
