Full Moon Gallery Hours Extended for the Eclipse

Jumping on the TOTALITY band-wagon, the Magic Valley Arts Council and Full Moon Gallery of Art and Contemporary Craft will be offering extended hours in celebration of the Total Solar Eclipse, from noon to 6 pm on Sunday, August 20 and Monday, August 22. Regular hours of operation are Tuesdays-Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm.

“With so many people taking advantage of the canyon rim trail we want to help them buy gifts to remember their experience,” said Full Moon Gallery President Jan Mittleider.

Located on the Second Floor of the Twin Falls Center for the Arts, 195 River Vista Place, the co-op gallery is home to 19 local artists whose works include ceramics, encaustic, engraved gourds, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography and woodwork. Many of the art pieces showcase the Magic Valley.

The current exhibit featured at inside the gallery is Highlighting the Grain, featuring new works by Full Moon Gallery Artists and Guest Artist Donald Pica. In the main lobby is the Idaho Watercolor Society Regional Art Show.

Twin Falls artist Donald Pica has been a woodworker since high school and has constructed many large pieces of furniture from American hardwoods, oak, walnut, cherry, alder, and maple. Since retirement in 2006 he has pursued his hobby to a much greater degree, resulting in a large number of cut of pieces of hardwood. Using a lathe, he turns these blocks into beautifully unique bowls, containers, chargers, trays and tureens.

Full Moon Gallery Artist members are: Paula Brown Sinclair, Joyce DeFord, Paula Dodd, Jerry Dodds, Neva Edwards, Geri Fuestel, Gloria Hann, Rick Kuhn, Bev Stone, Rosi Martinez-Eckert, Roy Mason, Barbara Michener, Jan Mittleider, Betsy Morishita, Connie Pepper, Corinne Slusser, Leon Smith, and Monica Yamamoto-Hoffmann.
