Cello Art at Gallery 55!

July is an exciting month for Gallery Fifty-Five. Not only do we have equine art by Liane Kerting-Vick, ceramics by our newest member Candace Bonawitz, a pocket sketching workshop by Kath Macaulay July 10-12, but also cello art (cellos made into art, yes) by Pam McKnight and Stephen Douglas. Come down any time in July to see the cellos or come to the reception on July 7, 4-8 pm. The cellos will be auctioned off in September to benefit the Treasure Valley Artists’ Alliance scholarship fund. Stephen’s cello magically plays music. Both cellos are beautiful.

For more information about the auction, see For more about Kath Macaulay’s workshop and how to register, visit

February Workshops

Jewelry by Nancy Sathre-Vogel

Through the magic of the McCall Arts & Humanities Council Cabin Fever Series, we are able to offer you two workshops at the gallery in February, one on metal smithing by Nancy Sathre-Vogel and another in book arts by Thea Belecz.

Nancy’s workshops actually bridge January into February. She is offering two evening classes, one in the basics of soldering on January 31 and a second workshop on February 1 on copper patinas. Both classes run 6 – 8:30 pm.

Then on Saturday, 1 – 4 pm, February 17, Thea Belecz provides the perfect outlet for your dreams of spring and introduces you to the art of simple bookbinding. Her Garden Journal interleaves gridded and plain paper, making it perfect for storing notes and lists, as well as pasting pictures into one page while plotting and planning on the next page.

All three workshops require pre-registration at
