Ascendance by Connie McClaran

On November 3rd, we welcome guest artist wood sculptor Gary Peer, featured member artist photographer Connie McClaran and our newest member, bronze sculptor Allen Malaise. Gary’s spiritual and abstract-looking sculptures reference contemporary society’s decaying order in a medium admired through the ages for its warmth and beauty.

And to complement Connie’s work and our location on the shore of the Payette, outdoor enthusiast Allen Malaise adds imposing, motion-packed and fabulously detailed bronzes of Northwestern wildlife. You don’t want to miss any of this.

“Road to Melba” by Betty Mallorca

It’s fall in McCall, and winter is on its way. On October 6, Gallery Fifty-Five will host a reception for painter Betty Mallorca and for new work by ceramicist Katharina Roth. Betty specializes in landscapes and abstract paintings that celebrate color and the natural world. Her response to nature and color is visceral, a response that she expresses in large format to powerful effect. Gallery Fifty-Five member Katharina Roth has a new line of work in porcelain that she is excited to share with you. You will admire the delicate quality of Katherina’s work, influenced by her studies in Switzerland, the U.S. and China.

Also, meet our newest member, Linda Berberick, who brings not only traditional ceramics to the gallery but plenty of humor with her fabulous ceramic figures and faces.

Meet all the artists and see the art at our First Saturday reception, October 6, 4-8 p.m., with music by Mike Rutledge, wine by Bistro 45 and appetizers.

We have invited Oregon potter Terri Axness and Idaho painter Mary Butler to show their new work at the gallery in September. Terri, our guest artist, draws her inspiration from “the incredible diversity in the pacific northwest,” with treatments that vary from the serious to the whimsical.

Meet the artists and see the art at our First Saturday reception on Labor Day weekend, September 1, 4-8 p.m., with music by Mike Rutledge, wine by Bistro 45 and plenty of appetizers.
