“Small Green Silk” by Jean Goff

Our guest artist for the month of September is fiber artist Jean Goff. The McCall-based artist is adept at combining traditional and modern techniques into wall hangings that emotionally connect to the natural world. This month we are also featuring one of our gallery members, Montana native Candace Bonawitz. Her textured and painterly ceramics remind of us of our favorite gardens. Finally, please join us in welcoming our two newest members, bronze artist Dave Armstrong and jeweler Donna Armstrong. Singer-songwriter Michaela French will sing originals and covers with guitar accompaniment at our First Saturday reception.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists at our First Saturday reception, September 7, 4-7 p.m., with live music, wine and appetizers.

“Clouds Over Boise River” by Rena Vandewater

The holidays are beautiful in McCall. Trees are lit, decorations go up, but Mother Nature does the best decorating. On December 1, we welcome guest artist painter Rena Vandewater and feature glass artist Laura Johnson and our newest member, jeweler Michele Applebee. Rena’s famously colorful oil and acrylic paintings not only provide just the antidote for cabin fever but will delight art collectors. Featured member, Laura Johnson, also a master of color, inspires us with new fused glass work on her favorite subject, the natural landscape. You’ll want to take in the elegance of Michelle Applebee’s jewelry, too, the perfect gift for someone you love—or for yourself.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty member artists at our First Saturday reception, December 1, 4-8 p.m., with music by Mike Rutledge, wine by Bistro 45 and appetizers.

Gallery Fifty-Five is a nonprofit artist cooperative.

When: Saturday, December 1, 4-8 pm.
Where: Gallery Fifty-Five, 311 E. Lake Street, McCall, Idaho
Admission: Free
