Sun Valley Galleries cancelled their July Fourth Gallery Walk due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But Kneeland Gallery is hosting a reception for its new exhibition from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 9. And a few other galleries are inviting art lovers to stop by and see their new exhibitions, as well.

  • KNEELAND GALLERY’S July exhibition at 271 1st Avenue, N., in Ketchum will feature the work of Mark Gibson Eric Jacobsen and Seth Winegar.

    This image is part of Maria Svarbova’s “Yesterday’s Future” exhibition, currently on view at Gilman Contemporary in Ketchum.

    Gibson, born and raised in Montana, originally studied to be an architect and you can see his formal training play out in the teepees that characterize his work. Most recently he has been increasing the scale of his works, which has contributed to his ability to create a powerful mood in each painting.

    Plein air painter Eric Jacobsen grew up in New England where he developed a kinship with the maritime artists of his hometown. But he now calls the Northwest his home. “I want to be right there, interacting with the scene,” he said of the work he does in the outdoors. “I don’t want any rehearsals in my life.”

    Eric Jacobsen’s “The Neighbor’s Place,” 16-by-20-inch oil on panel, can be seen at Kneeland Gallery.

    Utah artist Seth Winegar paints tonalist landscapes of the West, marked by broad brush strokes and subtle colors.

  • GAIL SEVERN GALLERY, 400 First Avenue North, is displaying the work of Hung Liu, Pegan Brooke, Chris Maynard and Sheila Gardner.

    An immigrant from China, Liu feels she is a kindred spirit to the people depicted in the works of Depression Era photographer Dorothea Lange. Liu’s current works blends American documentary photography with the artist’s signature fluid style of drips and washes.

    Seth Winegar’s “April Bloom,” 42-by-49-inch oil on panel, can be seen at Kneeland Gallery.

    Liu’s works acknowlege the tragedies of poverty, hunger and displacement, while celebrating the resilience and perseverance of the human spirit—a perfect gift for these times.

    Pegan Brooke draws inspiration from the reflection of light as it dances upon water, morning fog across the landscape and the crystalline beauty of snow for her abstract and meditative oil paintings.

    The late Sheila Gardner captured Mt. Moran II in this 16.75-by-21.5-inch watercolor on paper.

    Chris Maynard employs feathers as symbols for healing, achievement, transformation and mankind’s dreams of flight and transcendence. Through precise cutting and arranging using ophthalmic surgery scissors, forceps, magnifying glasses and entomology pins, he releases a story from each feather.

    Sheila Gardner was an internationally acclaimed plein-air painter before she passed away in 2019. The gallery is honoring her life and career with a memorial retrospective that includes work depicting the Wood River Valley, France and Maine.

  • GILMAN CONTEMPORARY, 661 Sun Valley Road, is showing Maria Svarbova’s “Yesterday’s Future.” The exhibition features photographs from the Slovakian artist’s “Swimming Pool “ series and her more recent “Lost in the Valley.”

    Svarbova, whose work has been featured in “Vogue,” “Harper’s Bazaar” and other publications,  depicts Socialist-era architecture and public spaces with a modern freshness that highlights the depth and range of her creative palette. Her “Lost in the Valley” works feature thematic dream-like scenes in Death Valley.

    The exhibition will be on view through July 30.

  • FRIESEN GALLERY, is showing new works by Dennis “Cosmo” Evans titled “A Few Millionths of a Second Later…”

Evans has imagined and sculpted with clay and fire what he believes the quarks and electrons from The Big Bang is made of. A native of Yakima, he studied chemistry at the University of Washington before earning a BFA in Ceramics and an MFA in Design.

His artwork is included in many museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
