“Fall Berries I” by Thea Belecz

We have a special treat for our First Saturday Reception in March, a presentation from collage artist Thea Belecz called “Patterns in Nature.” Ms. Belecz observes the “repeating patterns in nature wherever she goes and records those patterns with her camera and sketch book.” Those recordings then become essential material for her artwork, as she references or wholly incorporates them into fantastical works on fiber or paper. Join us for Thea’s presentation on “how and why she puts it all together.” For more about Thea Belecz and her work, see theabelecz.com.

Visit with Thea and view her art and the art of over twenty regional artists on March 7, 4-7 p.m., with complimentary wine and appetizers. Thea’s presentation will begin at 5:00 p.m.

Gallery Fifty-Five is sponsoring, not one, but two workshops the last weekend of June. Genie Sue Weppner, a popular ceramic artist at Gallery Fifty-Five, is opening up her McCall studio for a workshop in hand-built ceramics.

That same weekend, Lupe Galván, who will be teaching painting at Boise State in the fall, teaches a workshop in landscape painting, starting at the gallery and then venturing to plein air locations near McCall.

Class sizes are limited. Find out more and reserve your spot by visiting our workshops page.
