A Basque in Boise

Photojournalist Jan Boles’ exhibit opens next week at Boise’s Basque Museum

“The Time of the Lambing and Shearing”

Date: 02/23/17
Time: 6pm
Location: Basque Museum & Cultural Center
 

In 1976, Photojournalist Jan Boles was assigned to write a feature article about the sheep industry in Idaho for the Idaho Free Press. Jan photographed the last lambing and shearing operations at the J.D. Aldecoa and Son, Inc ranch – a year later, the company sold the sheep and focused solely on cattle and farming.  The exhibit: “The Time of the Lambing and Shearing” features photographs taken by Jan along with artifacts from J.D. Aldecoa and Son, Inc.

Visit the Basque Museum on February 23rd at 6pm for the opening reception with comments by Jan, followed by light refreshments.
