Jerry Markham has always the consummate student, he continually strives to evolve and grow as a painter, often tackling subject matter that challenges him, whether by pushing the composition, altering light or color, or experimenting with how the paint is applied. “I want to capture the essence of a subject more than the specifics. If the work is loose and a bit undone, there is more room for the viewer to interpret, to access the painting through their own imaginings.” Markham, age 37, has been painting full-time for over 10 years. Jerry’s work has been featured in Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Western Art & Architecture and, International Artist magazine.

Thursday’s Art Walk will also feature Colt Idol who will be doing a live painting demonstration in the gallery during Art Walk. Local favorite musician David Walburn will also be performing at the Gallery. Should be a fun night at the gallery, see you there!

We are proud to feature Darcie Peet for a one woman show on September 4th from 6-9pm for the Art Walk here at the Dick Idol Signature Gallery. In Darcie’s own words….”So much of the exhilaration in painting is the initial quest, the journey in finding those “wild places”. Hiking, cycling, canoeing, riding and kayaking, I seek a vital sense of place and glimpse into the powerful personality of these back country spaces. I hope that a painting can spark deep personal memories for the viewer of a particular setting they too, may have visited”. Darcie has been honored with numerous awards, and acquired for many permanent collections, as well as being featured in many national publications. Please join us for the September Art Walk event to take advantage of this opportunity to meet Darcie and see her newest works.
