  • Bellevue historian Tom Blanchard will describe Hailey’s rough and ready days at 5:30 p.m. tonight at the Hailey Public Library tonight—Nov. 7.

    He’ll unveil a cast of colorful characters whose actions are still felt even today. Among them: Leo Cramer, who started a bank and used the deposits to enhance his lifestyle. When the bank failed, he drove to Reno and placed the entire cache on the loser.

  • A reception showcasing a new display of art featuring the work of Bellevue and South Valley artists will be held from 5 to 7 tonight at 7Fuego Restaurant in Bellevue.

The reception, which will feature such artists as Beth Magee and Anne Jeffery, will be held between 5 and 7 p.m. There will be live music, eats and an open bar.

The Bellevue Artists Alliance rotates exhibits once every six months.

In addition to 7 Fuego, The Trader in Bellevue has a new exhibit, as does Hailey’s Mountain West Bank.

The Trader will showcase the work of Marie Stewart for the next three months; Mountain West Bank will feature works by six BAA Artists, including Kate Copplestone Flood, Elisabeth Bayer and Marie Stewart.

The Bellevue Artist Alliance connects artists and the community through art, business partnerships, exhibits and events. It was one of three organizations nominated for the Non-Profit of the Year for The Chamber’s 2019 Business and Community Awards. Winners will be announced at an awards banquet held Thursday, Nov. 14, at Mountain Humane.
