McCall’s fall landscapes reflect vividly in the waters of the Payette and seem to be in lively conversation with the colorful “lifescapes” of our guest this month, painter Michelle Grace. Michelle’s passion is color, rendered with layers of acrylic paint. And you are sure to appreciate the emotional quality of the paintings, which she calls “lifescapes.” At our First Saturday reception on October 5th, you can see Michelle’s work and that of our newest member, painter and multi-media artist Gregory Gibboney. The reception will include live music by popular locals Annie Nie and Jeff Box playing their special blend of Americana and soft blues.
Meet the artists and view the art by over twenty regional artists at our First Saturday reception, October 5, 4-7 p.m., with live music, wine and appetizers.

More on Michelle Grace:
Montana native Michelle Grace grew up in a family of artists, mother, brother, uncle, and explored many media and subjects, photography, oils, ceramics, still lifes, portraits and figures. Now her work has taken an abstract turn, building brilliantly colored “lifescapes” through layers of acrylic paint.

More on Annie Nies and Jeff Box:
Annie Nies and Jeff Box met at a McCall music jam and immediately clicked. Annie has been playing mandolin off and on in McCall since the 70’s with various groups, and Jeff played bass and guitar all over the world during his years in the military. As a duo they sing a variety of musical styles...Americana, soft rock and blues, for a unique mellow sound. Both are members of the 5-piece “Open Range” band.
