Inspiring, contemplative, vibrant.
The words don’t sum up the pieces on display at the dozen downtown art galleries but they are among the many that will tug at the right side of the brain.
This week’s ArtWalk, Friday from 5 to 8, features galleries including Steven A. Scroggins Fine Art, Blackwell, Painter’s Chair, Studio 107 and Art Spirit on Sherman Ave in Coeur d’Alene’s downtown.
Artist Melissa Cole, who studied natural history and zoology before turning her education to art, is featured at Studio 107.
Cole http://www.melissacole.com/ paints animals, marine and terrestrial and her fish images are classic inland Northwest. Originally from Oregon, her exhibits have appeared in galleries from Alaska to Key West, including a public, outdoor display of salmon and trout that grace the 5th Street pedestrian bridge in Lewiston.
