TEMBER KICKS IT OFF IN STYLE. I love the changing colors on display in Idaho’s mountains, and a scenic Sunday drive is just the thing to unwind and take a quick nature bath. In this issue, I share some backpacking tips to one of my favorite lakes, Blue Lake, and Roger Phillips shows us a few of his favorite Idaho road trip destinations. Speaking of style, this issue features Robert Comstock, Voxn, Swank and The Style Spy blogger Tanya Carnahan with some great fall fashion information. John Labry of Labry Fine Art discusses why we should consider original works of art to express our style at home, and Chef Joshua Turner of Dry Creek Mercantile shares tips for adding style to your meals.   As summer fades into fall, we hope this issue helps generate some fun ways to

The Ada County campus will have a new, larger school for teen parents and a community center, moving the Salvation Army’s programs and services closer to this underserved population center of the Treasure Valley.The $9 million fundraising goal has been met, and construction is underway. More than 250 donors—families, individuals, corporations and foundations—will make the new campus a reality. A key gift from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation has allowed the Salvation Army to officially meet the campaign goal. The campaign was co-chaired by three volunteers: Michael Ballantyne, managing partner; Thornton Oliver Keller Commercial Real Estate; and Jenifer Dellgard, corporate recruiter for First Interstate Bank. Business leader and philanthropist Jim Kissler, CEO of Norco and trustee of the Kissler Family Foundation, served as honorary chair of the campaign.

You will then backtrack a bit before going up and over a summit into Secesh, another settlement that seems to be frozen in time. From there, continue to Warren, the Burgdorf Hotsprings is relatively unchanged since it was developed in the early 1900s.

WHY OWN ORIGINAL

Art?

EXPLORING THE HUMAN NEED TO CREATE AND OWN ART ARTICLE JOHN LABRY | PHOTOGRAPHY LABRY FINE ART

IN A TIME WHEN TECHNOLOGY HAS ALLOWED

US

TO

PLACE

LARGE

FLATSCREENS ON OUR WALLS THAT CAN FLOOD OUR LIVES WITH IMAGES OF JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, ONE MIGHT ASK WHY WE SHOULD EVEN CONSIDER ORIGINAL WORKS OF ART. To many, a desire for and a need to own original art is not something they can question or even explain. It speaks to something deep in the psyche. To most, though, the question is why, when it costs so much more than a pretty reproduction. So let's look back in time a little to see if

LaBry Fine Art

there are hints as to why humans have had the need to create and own beautiful art. Among

the

earliest

Judiciary mask, Fang tribe, Gabon, Africa - Late 19th/Early 20th Century

archeological

evidence of Homo sapiens, there exist magnificent galleries of art, most widely known from the French and Spanish caves of Lascaux, Chauvet and Altamira. The paintings in these cavernous galleries date back as much as 40,000 years, and they appear to have been a culmination, at that time, of a long evolution of artistic expression.

Cave paintings at Altamira, Spain

"Fleeting Moment" by Glen Hush - limited edition photograph 24

Boise Lifestyle | September 2018


What was it that possessed our ancient ancestors to create and appreciate these paintings that we still consider beautiful today? They were stylized representations of creatures that shared their environment, and yet much more than that. Were they invocations to their deities to ensure a good hunt, the visions of shamans in altered states of consciousness, psychological expressions of social context, or the creation of beauty as a respite from the visceral stresses of their world at the time? Perhaps all of the above. Certainly, these creations demonstrated

"Pretenders" by Louis Peck

in humans something that makes us unique: the singular capacity to imagine. Imagination allowed us to envision what could be and caused us to not be content with just what was. It is the engine that has taken us to where we are today. Art is the embodiment of imagination, of our ability to abstract what we see, what we envision and what we dream. As agriculture developed and societies became more complex, their art became more complex. It became the media for recording events, justifying and aggrandizing those in authority, and beautifying public and private spaces. Grand examples were the province of those with wealth, but even those in the lower ranks of society sought and created objects that would bring pleasure to their eyes and souls.

"Pacification" by Andrey Tkachenko

Over time, art developed not only aesthetic value in our minds but monetary value as well. Societies raided competing societies for their wealth, which included their most prized arts. And to this day, what do we prize most and preserve of bygone societies? Our museums focus on the art of these past societies, not their financial records. And yes, we are interested in the technologies they developed, but it is the art that is dominant in our public collections. It is the art of these ancestral peoples that we often travel far and wide to see in the great museums of the world. Throughout our time on this planet, art has been essential in connecting us to the spiritual, in providing comfort and joy, in recording life and important events, in expressing what cannot be put into words and also at times in bringing wealth.

"Canyon Dream" by John Killmaster

So what of today, in our technology-filled world? Well, original art enriches a home and can provide any feeling you would want to promote. Original fine art is not mere decor. It is a statement. It inspires conversation. It articulates its owner’s taste and personality and the image he or she wants to project far better than any machine-reproduced images can ever do. Each item produced by an artist is unique, or at least one of a limited edition, as in cast sculptures, fine art photographs or etchings. Our community has many fine artists who deserve our support so they can continue to enrich our lives.   Some of the featured images are available for purchase at the gallery. LaBry Fine Art, 404 S.

DOWNTOWN FASHION BOISE BOUTIQUES AND DESIGNERS ARTICLE JULIE MEYER | PHOTOGRAPHY RUTH NOVELLA, TIFFANI GIVEN AND TANA PHOTOGRAPHY

IN 2007 JODY MALLONEE RETIRED FROM A 15-YEAR CAREER IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND OPENED SWANK IN NORTH SPOKANE IN MARCH 2008. Shortly around that time the stock market crashed, and the country entered a depression. A lot of people were losing their homes, filing for bankruptcy and tightening the budget for discretionary spending. Jody learned to operate in lean times, often not taking a paycheck or having to choose between a new shipment of merchandise or a paycheck. The store always won. With community support, she grew her business and moved to a larger, higher profile shopping center on Division in Spokane. The next step was running a mobile fashion truck, taking products on the road to sorority and athletic events in Pullman and Moscow, Hoopfest, Bloomsday and winery events. After visiting a friend in Boise in 2013 and falling in love with the downtown area, Jody opened the Boise store. This November, Swank Boise will celebrate its 5-year anniversary.   We asked Jody a few questions about Swank and what Boise Lifestyle readers should know about this great SWANK

It reminds us that sometimes you just need to get in the car and head somewhere with your tribe, that nothing lasts forever, to steal every laugh and appreciate every moment. Many of these pieces you can wear to a concert, to dinner or just to the grocery store. We love to style our pieces up or down depending on where our girl is heading and her lifestyle. You can pack and take them anywhere and style them a number of ways.  We would like to offer Boise Lifestyle readers 20 percent off entire purchase with code “Lifestyle” at SwankBoutique.net or mention it in-store.  PHOTOGRAPHY | Tiffani Given Photography, @tiffanigivenphotography STYLING | Jesenia Gutierrez for Swank HAIR | Heather Schmick, @heatherhairandbridalstylist

Designer Erica Becker was born with an entrepreneur’s spirit and realized her dream of owning her own company when she created Voxn Clothing in 2016. What started out as an online boutique has continued to grow with the flagship store opening in downtown Boise in August 2017.  Currently, Voxn carries a variety of brands but plans to phase out other lines and carry exclusively the Voxn collection.  The first collection, which Erica has been designing here in Boise for the past two years, hit the stores last month.  Voxn stands for “valley of extreme nature” and has multiple meanings.  Erica started her design career working for major sportswear companies in California. With her background in contemporary sportswear, the active, outdoor Boise lifestyle is a perfect fit for Voxn Clothing. Erica describes the Voxn collection as clean, minimalistic and classic with attention to detail and high-quality fabrics.  Currently, they operate a hybrid space, with the store up front and the design space in the back. This allows them to do runway shows and connect with the community, partnering with local models and photographers. With each show, Voxn partners with local charities.  Past partners include The Women’s and Children’s Alliance and Dress for Success. TELL ME ABOUT THE LOOKS YOU HAVE SELECTED TO FEATURE AND WHY YOU CHOSE THEM. The looks I selected are from the Voxn Fall 2018 Collection: Urban Terrain. I choose these pieces because they embrace the adventurous, chic women in Idaho which is where our brand was founded and operates. Each piece is designed with lots of attention to detail and high-quality, breathable fabrics. Voxn label is available for wholesale to qualifying retailers.

Robert Comstock, the award-winning designer of luxurious men's and women's sportswear and outerwear, is to adventure travel what Switzerland is to dark chocolate. Casual, detailed  and always original, his elegant collections derive inspiration from two  very different sources: exciting personal experiences in some of Mother Nature's most stunningly beautiful environments  and  the gorgeous, technically sophisticated, uniquely finished skins and fabrics created by Europe's finest, most skilled, innovative textile and tanning artisans. Sourced in Italy and Spain, Robert Comstock Signature sportswear and outerwear are made in Italy, from first to last stitch and often by hand. Highlights include exquisite 100 percent cashmere knits and sweaters, beautiful brushed cotton flannels, subtly handsome baby alpaca blazers, tissue-thin goat suede jackets, butter-soft glove lamb blousons, and featherweight Spanish baby merino and entrefino shearlings.  A fifth-generation Idahoan, enamored of nature and wildlife since early childhood, Robert's wanderlust and affinity for outdoor adventure are lifelong. When I asked Robert about his connection to Idaho in general and the Boise community specifically, he said, “I love the sincerity of the people, I like the accessibility to the outdoors, and I think the latter influences the former. I once summed it up this way for an ad campaign: ‘It’s the openness that clothes you.’ Idaho is a very special place.” He first explored South America in his late teens and 40 years later, continues traveling the world. An avid conservationist and outspoken advocate of endangered raptor species,  natural habitat  and  native  cultures, Robert is a 30-year board member of the scientifically acclaimed Peregrine Fund and World Center for Birds of Prey and has financed cottage industries for American Indian craftspeople. A longtime resident of New York City currently living in Dallas, Robert also maintains a cabin on the banks of Idaho's Henry's Fork of Women's coat, feather weight Spanish lamb with gold metallic appliqué and feather touch baby alpaca lining.

the Snake River, a world-famous blue ribbon trout stream, where he canoed and fly-fished as a boy. With his own two sons, he spends as much time there as possible each summer, soaking up the natural wonders of the Yellowstone Basin.

In its 25th anniversary edition, MR Magazine named him one of fashion’s “25 most interesting characters.” The opportunity to meet and visit

A List of Essentials for Blue Lake ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY RICHARD MEYER

BLUE LAKE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BACKPACKING DESTINATIONS FOR A QUICK ESCAPE INTO THE BOISE NATIONAL FOREST. With a hike that is just under a mile, it’s a perfect introduction to backpacking and allows for packing some heavier, luxury items that you wouldn’t want for a longer trip into the backcountry. No problem on this short hike. A nice water filter provides unlimited water, and with some skill/ luck, you can catch your dinner in the pristine blue waters of Blue Lake. Nestled below Snowbank Mountain and Granite Peak, the night sky is as beautiful as it comes during the quiet evening hours.   36

Bearded

Gentlemen TWO BOISE MEN SHARE WHAT CONNECTS THEM TO THE COMMUNITY ARTICLE JULIE MEYER

PHOTOGRAPHY TANA PHOTOGRAPHY & BLAKE BECKMAN- IROCK IMAGES

EVEN THE CASUAL OBSERVER HAS NOTICED THAT OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS, BEARDS HAVE BECOME MORE POPULAR. Now that society is more accepting of beards, many guys are using them as an outlet to express their individual style. Wendy Rose, owner of the Beardsmith, helps men create a beard as a conscious expression of themselves rather than looking like they’ve neglected to shave. HOW CAN YOU GET THE RIGHT LOOK FOR YOUR BEARD? When patrons come into the shop, they should have a goal for their beard. They may want a clean business look or to grow their beard out. Consulting with a professional will help achieve the look they are after. We work with facial features to create an attractive shape specific to each individual. Our technique is specific and consistent to our process. While the ideal beard is curly, dense and soft, we can work with all types and achieve the look you want. I love beards, and I love helping men feel good about their beards.

LOCALS ONLY

(CON TI N U ED)

The Long Straight-Wavy Beard MIKE BECKMAN HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR TIME? I would say first off, I am a pretty chill dude. I love everything Idaho: fishing, camping, golfing, floating the Boise River and anything outdoors. Pretty much everything you can imagine a dude with a majestic beard would do, I do. I currently have a standard Monday through Friday job and work in technology. WHAT DO YOU HOPE FOR THE FUTURE? Blake Beckman- iRock Images

My hopes and dreams for the future are to be happy. I find joy in almost anything I am a part of or do and just enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I strive to just be a happy and loving person and maybe have a Harley again... HOW DO YOU CONNECT WITH THE BOISE COMMUNITY? I am born and raised in Boise. I love this place. I have lived abroad in Central America and have visited many places, but Boise and Idaho are always home, and I gravitate back here always. I am the founding admin for The Chive Idaho, a  charity organization focusing on the underdog and doing our part daily to make our community and world 10 percent better each  day. We do this through various avenues and work hard to be a part of the community. We work with Sleep in Heavenly Peace building beds for needy kids; we held a golf tournament for the TGA to sponsor at-risk kids and get them into a summer golf program. We also help out at the Ronald McDonald House. The Chive Idaho has a huge passion for helping others, and we are always looking for families who are in need. We are hooligans and underdogs ourselves, but we really work hard to lift up others. That to me is really the best way to strengthen a community and be a good person. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR A HAPPY, SUCCESSFUL LIFE? The most important thing is to be kind, be caring, be loving. Be the person who would always make your mother happy, and you will be happy. Help others and give back. Buy the coffee for the person behind you in the Dutch line once in a while. Notice someone struggling in the grocery store and pick up their tab. Smile at people! I know all of this sounds cliché, but the reality is little things can make a huge difference and maybe even save a life. Be unapologetically yourself and do what you want and don’t let others affect your own happiness.

The Large, Thick, Curly Beard VICTORIO PIVA WHAT DO YOU DO? First and foremost I’m a father to my two children, Nicolo 7, and Marlow, 3. Currently, I am doing a little bit of everything, including pursuing my modeling career. When I’m not modeling I am in the mountains logging with my cousin.  HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START? I got my start modeling by just being in the right place at the right time and then having the opportunity to work with some amazing photographers. Instagram has also been huge for me in this area. Recently I have been modeling for book covers. This has been such a huge surprise, and I feel so lucky and honored with each cover. I had the pleasure of working alongside Robert Comstock this past winter on a project. He is as amazing as his clothing line!  WHAT DO YOU HOPE FOR THE FUTURE? I have signed with two modeling agencies, one based out of Las Vegas and the other out of LA and NY. I hope to take the modeling career as far as I can. I am also looking at two local barber colleges. I want to use my passion for beards and hair in avenues other than modeling and acting. HOW DO YOU CONNECT WITH OUR COMMUNITY? I am very involved in supporting different functions at my son’s school, Anser. YMCA sports programs take up a lot of my free time. I enjoy being a part of the Boise photography and modeling community.  WHAT MAKES A HAPPY, SUCCESSFUL LIFE? The most important aspect of a successful  life is knowing my kids are happy and doing things they love to do. Being present in their lives daily and participating in all their activities makes me the happiest man around. INSTAGRAM | @victorios_secret September 2018 | Boise Lifestyle

PHOTOGRAPHY KEVIN SCHULTZ

TAKING A FEW EXTRA MINUTES TO ATTRACTIVELY ARRANGE YOUR MEAL SHOWS YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAT YOU CARE ABOUT THEM. Food styling can turn a simple dinner into something special.  Plating a dish is an art, but with a little practice and a few guidelines any home cook can create something beautiful. 

PESTO ALFREDO WITH NEW YORK STRIP STEAK INGREDIENTS 4 New York strip steaks 1 pound fettuccine pasta, cooked al dente Pesto 1 cup fresh basil leaves 1/2 cup pine nuts 4 cloves garlic 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

Sauce 1 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved kosher salt to taste Garnish green and yellow pea micro greens Fresh chives Balsamic glaze

I have been in the culinary industry for 18 years. Throughout my life, I have always known that I would cook for my career as well as play a role in the hospitality industry. From mom-and-pop shops to banquets and caterings, I have always wanted to be part of the memories customers have associated with food. Throughout my career, I have always wanted to find a restaurant home with great ownership and a family feel. I

DIRECTIONS Season steak with salt and pepper and grill about 2-3 minutes per side until medium-rare, depending on thickness. Set aside and let rest. Prepare the pasta. In a dry skillet on medium to high heat, cook halved tomatoes until the skins start to blister. Set aside. Process basil, pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and pepper in food processor until smooth. In a large sauté pan set between medium to high, heat heavy cream for several minutes until it starts to reduce. Add cheese until melted and mixed well, then add pesto sauce and stir well to combine. Add pasta to sauté pan and cook over low heat for 1-2 minutes, combining with sauce until evenly incorporated.

In addition to the restaurant, we also offer a general store, Dry Creek Pizza, luxurious suites above the restaurant as well as full-service catering.
