STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

The Sun Valley Museum of Art will hold the final tours for its exhibition “Two Year Supply” on Thursday. Then, art lovers are invited to check out “The Booksellers,” part of The Museum’s film series.

Community members are invited to take part in free tours of the exhibition at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9, at The Museum at Fifth and Washington streets while enjoying a glass of wine.

The exhibition features artwork by painter/sculptor Rebecca Campbell, who plays off her parents’ younger days as potato farmers in the Magic Valley. Also, Alexis Pike, whose photos are based on the tales of her relative Annie Pike Greenwood, who wrote “We Sagebrush Folks” about her hardscrabble experience in Magic Valley.

Also in the exhibition are FSA photographs of Japanese-American internees at Minidoka who farmed Idaho’s fields while Idaho farmers were fighting Word War II.

Afterwards people are invited to attend two screenings of “The Booksellers,” a documentary that tours New York’s book world from the Park Avenue Armory’s annual Antiquarian Book Fair where original editions fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars to the famed Strand and Argosy bookstores.

The film is beguiling, according to a review from NPR, with “most of the story told by eccentrics you’ve never heard of but will enjoy meeting.”

The documentary will screen at 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Magic Lantern Cinemas in Ketchum. Tickets are $10 for SVMoA members and $12 for nonmembers. Buy tickets at https://ci.ovationtix.com/159/performance/10848904?performanceId=10848904
