Full Moon Gallery Extends Hours

The Magic Valley Arts Council’s Full Moon Gallery of Art and Contemporary Craft will be offering extended hours during the month of June. The gallery will be open Tuesdays-Thursdays from 10 am to 5 pm, Fridays from 10 am to 7 pm and Saturdays from 11 am to 2 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 Artists Donald Pica and Jodi Silvers-Miller. In the main lobby is the Idaho Watercolor Society Regional Art Show.

 

The Magic Valley Arts Council and Full Moon Gallery invite you to visit the exhibit Highlighting the Grain featuring new works by Full Moon Gallery Artists and Guest Artists Donald Pica and Jodi Silvers-Miller. Highlighting the Grain will be on display through June 17.

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 from the College of Southern Idaho 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.

Originally from Twin Falls, Boise artist Jodi Silvers-Miller designed *beautiful words* to promote the idea that words create and words bring life. *beautiful words* seeks to unlock a person’s potential – carry promise that transcends cultural boundaries – deliver beauty, hope, and light into the world. *beautiful words* empower each individual – from those who help to create them, to the ones who give them, and ultimately, to those who receive them – helping each person to know and experience that they are created to be loved and, in turn, love others deeply. Since 2015, Jodi has free-hand engraved hundreds of custom key necklaces with a wood-carver.

Also on display are works from winners in the Art & Soul of the Magic Valley contest.

Twin Falls Visitor Center Features Local Artist

The Twin Falls Chamber and Magic Valley Arts Council will feature a local artist as Artist of the Month at the Twin Falls Visitor Center. Our first artist is Leon Smith. His painting “Perrine Stage Last Run” is showcased at the Visitor Center in front of the restored Perrine Stagecoach. The oil painting shows the stagecoach making a stop at the Perrine Hotel in downtown Twin Falls in 1916.

Congratulations to Full Moon Gallery artist Paula Dodd!
She was selected by the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) to create communion ware for their 2017 national convention in Albuquerque, NM.

Keeping with the LWML’s 2017 color theme, Paula worked for several months to create 30 sets of 48 oz flagons, 16 oz chalices, and 10″ patens.


Bev Stone’s Snowpuppies and the Snowdeer #1
Full Moon Gallery artist Bev Stone is the first indie author to get two books on The Gittle List in one year. She is also the first author to win the #1 spot two times, 2016 and 2014 (The Gittle List 2014). Her latest book Snowpuppies and the Snowdeer is available for purchase at the Full Moon Gallery.

#1: Snowpuppies and the Snowdeer, written & illustrated by Bev Stone, is the story of Tri, a very restless and curious puppy. The Snowpuppies series (this is Book 3) is about ten puppies who live in the snow. I love the whimsy of the story. The puppies sleep on snowflakes for pillows and a snowman stands watch at night. One night Tri, our curious puppy, can’t sleep and decides to follow a blackbird who is flying from tree to tree. The bird flies out of sight and Tri finds himself lost and alone in the middle of the forest, unprepared to deal with the dangers that nightfall can bring. How will he get home? Stone’s illustrations and page design are lovely. Once again, Stone writes a story in rhyme that is wonderful to read out loud. There is the lesson of not wandering off and staying close to home to be safe. But the rhyming is so beautiful; Snowpuppies and the Snowdeer exposes a child to the sheer joy of words. It will inspire a child to read and perhaps bring out the writer in them.
The goal of The Gittle List is to find great indie children’s picture books. There are now 39 wonderful books to choose from. Any (and all) of them will be a cherished gift for the little ones in your life.
