JUNE 1, 2010

Currently showing at the Entree Gallery during June is “Botanicals and Animals”, an exhibit of contemporary and rustic accents for home and garden. On display at both the Reeder Bay and Coolin Bay galleries, this diverse selection of regionally-crafted work includes pottery, fountains, bird baths, framed mirrors, forged iron pieces, garden sculptures, Amish furnishings, and unique reclaimed lumber beverage coolers.

As a special 2-day exhibit on June 18-19th, from 11am-5pm, the Reeder Bay gallery will also present “Earthen Song”, highlighting the Americana-style garden benches and furnishings of “American Maids” Hanna Moreland and Mandy Matlock. The two artists, whose country roots are reflected in their country-style accents and furnishings, use and reuse found wood and other items in their designs, using something old to create something new.

“This is a ‘must-see’ show, providing a wonderful opportunity to spruce up a sunroom, patio and yard with unique pieces not readily available elsewhere,” said gallery owner Pam Martin. “Although these pieces are specially created for the yard and garden in mind, many of are perfect for bringing the outside indoors”. 

The Entree Gallery, now at two locations, invites the public to view the work of over 150 regional artists. The gallery at Reeder Bay is located just 2 miles east of Nordman at 1755 Reeder Bay Rd, and can be contacted at 208 443-2001.

June hours are Sunday-Thursday 10am-4pm, and Friday-Saturday 10am to 5pm. For hours at the Coolin Bay gallery, located two doors from the Leonard Paul Store, call 208 443-2002.
