“Room for One More” by Pam McKnight

We have a sweetheart of a month coming up at the gallery. Assemblage artist Pam McKnight joins us in February as our guest from her studio, “Every Little Thing,” where she constructs delightful sculptures and tableaux from small found objects that you will recognize: doll parts, craft décor, scraps of paper and wood and more. Her creations beg for storytelling. At the other end of the scale, we also feature our own Allen Malaise, who creates large wildlife bronzes using the ancient art of lost-wax casting. Come to our reception during Winter Carnival for these exceptional artists on February 2, 4-8 p.m., and welcome the St. Luke’s McCall Auxiliary who will be providing the appetizers for the evening! You’ll want to hear more from them about the exciting work that the Auxiliary does for our community and how to join them in this valuable work.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty local and regional artists at our First Saturday reception, February 2, 4-8 p.m., with music by Judy Berg, wine by Bistro 45 and appetizers by St. Luke’s McCall Auxiliary.

Gallery Fifty-Five is a nonprofit artist cooperative.

When: Saturday, February 2, 4-8 pm.
Where: Gallery Fifty-Five, 311 E. Lake Street, McCall, Idaho
Admission: Free

Gallery 55 is pleased to offer for sale, as a fundraiser for McCall’s Children’s Theater, the masks that Robin Klassner, Kay La Bella, Etta Mayfield, Katrina Rude, Marnie Sell and Victoria Sell created for the 2017 fall production of Disney’s “The Lion King Jr.” The production was presented by the McCall Arts and Humanities Council’s Children’s Theater program by special arrangement with Music Theatre International with stage direction and choreography by Dawn Kolden and music direction by Linda Mayer. You can view these beautiful masks at the gallery through the month of June. Your purchase of a mask supports more great opportunities for local youth to participate in high-quality theater education. Director Kolden tells us that wearing a mask created for an actor “is a privilege. As the actor prepares for the role, the artist prepares for the creation of the mask. Each mask has an energy and, when brought to life on stage, it is palpable.” Come by the gallery and feel the energy.

Please join us for a reception on June 2, 4-8 pm, Gallery 55, 311 E. Lake St., McCall.
