“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.

Gallery Fifty-Five is a nonprofit artist cooperative.

When: Saturday, October 6, 4-8 pm.

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.
