    Our featured artist is retiring gallery member Cheryl Halverson with “fini”. Lois Kirkwood is the guest artist The opening reception, November 1 from 5 to 8 pm, will also be a benefit for The Friends of Manito. The artists’ exhibits continue through the end of the month.
    Cheryl Halverson, an Idaho native, works in water media and collage. She says “To attempt a portrait of a single flower in its natural habitat intrigues me more than a still life the body language of a living animal or person counts for more than a stiff formal portrait. Landscapes, real or imagined, rouse my painterly passions more than the most fabulous cityscape.”Halverson has been a member of the Avenue West Gallery since November 2003, one month short of its opening. She has served as its publicity chair and graphics designer for publicity materials. This will be her last month as an active member, but she will continue having a gallery presence as a consignee.
    Lois James Kirkwood, based in Spokane, has been painting for 40 + years. She creates ”luminous landscape abstractions that incorporate rich texture.” Of her process she says “Each new painting is a fresh adventure into uncharted territory, allowing accidents to happen and then finding solutions. I find this mentally stimulating and far more of a challenge than simply painting a preconceived idea”
