October Featured Artists
St. Luke's Eagle Gallery: Cherry Woodbury
Personal growth and being open to learning new things has been a way of life for me. Perhaps this came from being raised in the military, which gave me a diverse background from living all over the world. I am also an outdoor enthusiast and have often looked at a beautiful setting and thought how wonderful it would be to capture it in art.
Because of my love for the outdoors, I find animals and birds intriguing and exciting subjects. When painting wildlife, I enjoy researching my subject and thus gain new knowledge.
I have had the opportunity to travel the world and have found that I enjoy painting the faces of those I have met in these far away places.
I have found watercolor painting has opened my eyes to the way I look at the beauty and colors in the world. A sky of blue with a golden sunset and streaks of gold flowing into the blue is truly unique. Any watercolor mixture of gold and the blue would normally create green and yet with all the unlimited variations of daily skies, the colors in the sky remain true. This is only one challenge for a watercolor artist and why the creation of an acceptable piece of art can be self-rewarding.

City Hall Display Case: Hallie Maxwell
Hallie Maxwell is a ceramic figurative sculptor from Meridian, Idaho. Through her art she explores the shared human conditions of love and suffering by creating emotional human forms that are both realistic and abstract. She sculpts the human figure because it is the most universally recognizable and relatable form. In particular, she has a fascination with hands because they allow us to create, feel and communicate. A majority of the figures Hallie creates are from her imagination. She has studied the human form through models intensely at California Lutheran University. Going further than her training, she seeks to create faces and bodies that are entirely unique, just as each individual. Thus, there is a life to her forms that could not be expressed from being modeled after a singular human. She believes that her art is not a copy of nature, but rather the reflection of her inner self, emotions, and the hidden figures within.
St. Luke's Gallery: Debbie Brown
Debbie Brown grew up in east Texas. Having a passion for art and music, she began college as a music major. Her desire to help young children, however, led her to become a reading specialist. Following decades of creating exceptional art projects for her classrooms in Missouri, Debbie retired to Frisco, Texas. Her hunger for formal art training led her to study under an artist from New York University. During the past four years, she has developed her own style, focusing on buildings and structures she has seen in her travels. Some of her work was displayed in Texas before she moved to the Treasure Valley in 2019 with her husband, to be near her grandchildren.
