Full Moon Gallery

HOURS EXTENDED FOR THE SOLAR ECLIPSE

Jumping onto 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.

Autumn Abstracts features Guest Artists: Connor Acklin, Jenna Harder, David Horalek, Jessica Larsen, and Stephen Poppino.

Connor Acklin – Exploring the multifaceted brain of the human psyche, I like to engage multiple colors and textures, embracing the diverse dimensions from every glance angle or perspective that you take.

Jenna Harder believes that art is not always refined, but often messy and full of life and emotion. Her creative explorations have been in theatre, music, writing and belly dancing.

David Horalek works in mixed media painting and focuses on reusing and repurposing everyday materials and discarded junk. His art embodies the theme of recycling. Much of the proceeds of his art sales are donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Jessica Larsen began her craft when she started painting lessons at age 15. She attended the Art Institute of Seattle, Boise State University and Chautauqua Institute for the Arts in New York.

Stephen Poppino attributes his greatest inspiration is the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1950’s and 60’s, because of their emphasis on portraying emotions through their works.

Autumn Abstracts exhibit show September 6 through November 11, 2017.

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.
