“Payette Lake” by Connie McClaran

We had a fabulous February, even with all the snow or maybe because of the snow. McCall has been very busy. We currently have openings April and May for one or two guest artists each month, and the guest artist rent is discounted for those two months! Instead of paying $75, you pay only $50.  So, this is your chance to try our gallery location before the rates go up.

“Ice on Branch” by Marcia Hietala

Don’t forget First Saturday at Gallery Fifty-Five. We’ll have a special reception for Marcia and Larry Hietala (Hietala Photography) this evening, 4 – 8 p.m. Their art captures the natural world, both grand vistas and intimate close-ups of flora and fauna. They frame their work in reclaimed rustic wood, complementing the natural subjects of their art. In addition to framed photographic prints, they offer cards, note card sets and scenic bookmarks as a way to share their images to match any budget. We also have a new member, Stephanie L. Teeter, whose translucent pastel and oil paintings you will love. So, come on by to see her work and many others’.
