“Airship” by Shawn Hubbs

Early winter weather chills Payette Lake as I write this. In November, we are pleased to host guest artist Shawn Hubbs, who is strongly influenced by Steampunk, a sci-fi genre incorporating Victorian industrial steam-powered machinery and aesthetics. He builds intricate sculptures, such as models of airships or insectoid/mechanical fantasies, all from found objects. Some are functional. All are fun. We also are featuring one of our member artists, potter Genie Sue Weppner, who creates functional and decorative vessels inspired by time spent in Japan and her archeological studies in college. Each of her pieces reflects on the spiritual and ordinary aspects of our lives as did the finely crafted pottery of earlier civilizations. At our First Saturday reception on November 2nd, you can see Shawn’s and Genie Sue’s work and also that of our newest member, fiber artist Jean Goff. The reception will include live music by singer-songwriter Banjo Matt singing covers and originals and playing banjo in old-time claw hammer and Earl Scruggs styles.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists at our First Saturday reception, November 2, 4-7 p.m., with live music, wine and appetizers.

“Reciprocation” by Michelle Grace

McCall’s fall landscapes reflect vividly in the waters of the Payette and seem to be in lively conversation with the “lifescapes” of our guest this month, painter Michelle Grace. Michelle’s passion is color, rendered with layers of acrylic paint. And you are sure to appreciate the emotional quality of the paintings. At our First Saturday reception on October 5th, you can see Michelle’s work and that of our newest member, painter and multi-media artist Gregory Gibboney. The reception will include live music by popular locals Annie Nie and Jeff Box playing their special blend of Americana and soft blues.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists at our First Saturday reception, October 5, 4-7 p.m., with live music, wine and appetizers.

“Overflow I” by Pam Grant

Our guest artist for the month of August is Pam Grant, an award-winning abstract painter in water-based media. Her colorful and flowing abstractions capture the essence of landscape, figure and object. Abstraction is also central to the art of our featured member Thea Belecz, who collages hand-dyed fabric shapes and representational images into mixed media works that reference the landscapes she loves. As a special treat, the Old West Trio will entertain us with cowboy harmonies and acoustic playing at our First Saturday reception.

Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists at our First Saturday reception, August 3, 4-8 p.m., with live music and complimentary wine and appetizers.
