“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.

Happy Holidays! For the month of December, we are featuring our member Stephanie Teeter, a talented pastel painter. She recently returned to art after years of competitive equestrian endurance riding and raising a family. Years of being outdoors and riding throughout the world have given her a deep connection to the horses and the landscapes where they compete. Her brilliant sense of color plays beautifully in her paintings on this exciting subject matter. At our First Saturday reception on December 7th, you can see Stephanie’s paintings, along with artwork by our other members, including a special 8×8 sale ($49 for 8”x8” artwork) and a Christmas Market of gift items. You will also enjoy live music by the Late in Life String Band.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists on December 7, 4-7 p.m., with complimentary wine, appetizers and live music.

When: Saturday, December 7, 4-7 pm.
Where: Gallery Fifty-Five, 311 E. Lake Street, McCall, Idaho
