Work by Lynn McConnell and Debra Bonsack

Two New Artists and Iditarod Photography

Join us in welcoming two new artists at Gallery Fifty-Five. In mid-January, painter Debra Bonsack joined the gallery bringing an array of unique mixed media paintings that come off the wall and break out of the rectangle. Debra has many years of experience in the art festival field and as an art educator, including as an instructor of painting in Turney, Italy. Watercolorist Lynn McConnell is our newest member, starting in February. Lynn has extensive travel experience from her career in domestic and international human resources. She has been taking those travel experiences and her experiences from living in southwestern Idaho, which she calls “one of the most beautiful places on earth,” and creating paintings with a variety of perspectives.

Melissa Shelby’s Iditarod Show remains at the gallery through February to give you the opportunity to see her beautiful photographs of Iditarod 2020. She was one of the few photographers to record such a memorable event last March in the midst of a pandemic.

In February we also still have our Small Works Show Sale going on. This is the last month. You’ll still find bargains as low as $49 in this show. Come by and take a look. There may be a gift waiting for your valentine.

View our new artists’ work and the art of over twenty regional artists in the gallery. The gallery is open 11-5 daily.

When: The Month of February, 11-5 daily
Where: Gallery Fifty-Five, 311 E. Lake Street, McCall, Idaho
Admission: Free

Featuring Catherine Watson, Theresa Burkes in March

Visit the gallery in March to view Catherine Watson’s delightful watercolor and ink paintings. Watercolor is a relatively new experience for her, but she draws on almost forty years of experience painting on fabric and selling her popular wearable art at outdoor markets. Our featured member artist is Theresa Burkes who, in addition to her usual encaustic mixed media, has been experimenting with photo encaustic, the art of hand coloring black and white photographs with watercolor, pastels and encaustic paint.

View Catherine and Theresa’s work and the art of over twenty regional artists in the gallery. The gallery is open 11-5 daily.

When: The Month of March, 11-5 daily
Where: Gallery Fifty-Five, 311 E. Lake Street, McCall, Idaho
