  • Gallery 55 in McCall had a fabulous February, even with all the snow or maybe because of the snow. McCall has been very busy. We currently have openings April and May for one or two guest artists each month, and the guest artist rent is discounted for those two months. Instead of paying $75, you pay only $50.  We also have openings for 2D artists. To see the terms and apply for either, go to galleryfiftyfive.com and check out the Guest Artists and Membership pages.

  • Join us for the Land Art Exhibit Opening March 16 at the Idaho Botanical Garden!

    The Idaho Botanical Garden presents an Art Opening for a major new site-specific Land Art Exhibit at the Garden on Saturday, March 16, 2-4 pm. This is a free event.

    This exciting exhibit showcases 10 ephemeral works using natural materials by local artists Elizabeth Dickey, Alek de Dóchas, Dyan Ferren, Michele Lesica, Jennifer Mahlum, Helen McGill, Lisa Pisano, Claire Remsberg, Heather Wright, and Ace Zappa. Artists will be present to discuss their work.

    This is the Idaho Botanical Garden’s first ever Land Art Exhibit! This exciting exhibit features works using natural materials such as clay, leaves, seeds, stones, wood, and wool. These pieces challenge artists to think about creating art that does not permanently occupy a space.

    The exhibit will be on display at the Idaho Botanical Garden, March 16 through April 30, during regular Garden hours. The public is encouraged to visit the Garden and experience each of the unique creations.

    Executive Director Erin Anderson explains “The Garden serves as an outdoor art gallery, and we exhibit many sculptures on the Garden grounds. We are thrilled to bring these works to the Garden!”

    The Idaho Botanical Garden provides a full garden experience for all ages that enhances community quality of life through plant collections, education programs, and entertainment, cultural and community events.

    “We grow our community by connecting people, plants and nature” Erin shares “I look forward to seeing our guests gather in the Garden in March!”
