Her still life, landscape and plein air paintings are luscious renderings, chunks of color and light, ready for the viewer’s eye to explore and internalize. You will never grow tired of looking at Mary’s compositions, and their titles will make you smile. For more information about Mary, see

“Sunrise on Snowy Lake” by Mary Arnold
Mike Dixon and Chad Lord of Catfish d’Grey

We love Idaho landscapes at Gallery 55, and our guest for June, Mary Arnold, provides plenty of ones to love in oil on canvas. Her impressionist paintings are all about the mountains and contours of Idaho and the animals that live in these environs. On June 11, 4-7 p.m., we will hold a special reception for Mary and the more than twenty regional artists who are members of our gallery with live music by Catfish d’Grey. We hope you will join us..

View Mary’s work and the work of our artists at Gallery 55 every day in June. The gallery is open 11-5 daily.

Are you interested in teaching a workshop at Gallery Fifty-Five? Gallery Fifty-Five, located in the heart of downtown McCall on Payette Lake, is a beautiful location for a workshop. Space is limited to four students inside, but in the summer you can use the back porch and, weather permitting, the grassy area by the lake. The gallery is especially well-suited for plein air painting, providing plenty of opportunity for students to explore McCall and the lake scenery within walking distance. We have tables and chairs, or you may provide your own. Gallery Fifty-Five workshops are advertised in online calendars, social media, our newsletter and on our website.
