“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

“Tranquility” by Rich Summers

Hello snow enthusiasts! The slopes are open, and we are rockin’ and rollin’ at the gallery. In January, we welcome guest artist acrylic painter Rich Summers. Rich is a voice over actor with a passion for painting the beauty of the land and wildlife of the West, including Idaho. Rich’s eye for light transparently played out over the texture of his canvases will make you “Ooh” and “Ah.”  Our featured member artist is photographer Melissa Shelby, another artist who captures so beautifully the western landscape. You’ll want to check out her stunning images of scenery from the McCall area. And at our evening reception, you will enjoy hearing Judy Berg, an accomplished singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist newly-arrived on the music scene here in Idaho.
