Early winter weather chills Payette Lake as I write this. In November, we are pleased host guest artist Shawn Hubbs, who is strongly influenced by Steampunk, a sci-fi genre incorporating Victorian industrial steam-powered machinery and aesthetics. He builds intricate sculptures, such as models of airships or insectoid/mechanical fantasies, all from found objects. Some are functional. All are fun. We also are featuring one of our member artists, potter Genie Sue Weppner, who creates functional and decorative vessels inspired by time spent in Japan and her archeological studies in college. Each of her pieces reflects on the spiritual and ordinary aspects of our lives as did the finely crafted pottery of earlier civilizations. At our First Saturday reception on November 2nd, you can see Shawn’s and Genie Sue’s work and also that of our newest member, fiber artist Jean Goff. The reception will include live music by singer-songwriter Banjo Matt singing covers and originals and playing banjo in old-time claw hammer and Earl Scruggs styles.
Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists at our First Saturday reception, November 2, 4-7 p.m., with live music, wine and appetizers.
Gallery Fifty-Five is a nonprofit artist cooperative.
