Lake Street on Saturday, March 3, from 4-8:00 p.m. We’ll have wine by Bistro 45, appetizers, and music by Mike Rutledge. Our featured artist is Thea Belecz.

Milling in the Past by Thea Belecz

Thea combines photographic and traditional fiber and bookbinding techniques into contemporary textile masterpieces. Her work intuitively captures the mood of nature, weather and their effects on people.

She comes by this naturally, as she grew up in the woods, fields and shoreline of Lake Michigan and then graduated from the Forestry School at Michigan State. Graduation landed her a job in Idaho where she was initially overwhelmed by the area’s vast unpopulated spaces. But today she has grown accustomed to and revels in Idaho landscapes. You will appreciate that sentiment when you see her work.

Self Portrait in Color by Laurel Lake McGuire

 

Art on the Lake: Shopping for art and meeting local artists. What could be more fun in the new year? Drop by the gallery, at 311 E. Lake Street on Saturday, January 6, from 4-8:00 p.m. We’ll have wine by Bistro 45, appetizers, and music by Mike Rutledge. Our featured artist is watercolorist Laurel Lake McGuire.

About our featured artist:

Boise artist Laurel Lake McGuire has lived many places in the United States, frequently packing up her paints and brushes to follow her Marine husband to his next duty station. Although frequent moves played havoc at times with the continuity of her career in art, they also brought new subjects, new color choices and the support and fellowship of artists all over the U.S.

Now settled in Boise, she is intent on continuing her development as an artist and expand her impact in the art world. Watercolor is her primary medium and flowers are the subject closest to her heart. Recently she was honored to have two floral paintings selected for the Women Artist of the West’s annual exhibition, with one of her paintings awarded Best of Show. Another of her paintings in that show was featured in an article in Southwest Art magazine.

The paintings Laurel has selected for Gallery Fifty-Five’s January Featured Artist show gives us a welcome dose of brightness and color in the midst of winter, drawing on florals,  garden scenes and summer landscapes to cheer us up.

For more information about Laurel, see laurellakemcquire.artspan.com, or follow her on Facebook.
