-a Sanskrit word meaning I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One, is the title and theme for Rhea Giffin’s sculpted ornament donation along with exquisite ornament paintings and interpretations by more than a dozen established northwest artists which will adorn a special tree this year to benefit emergency services at Kootenai Medical Center via The Festival of Trees at the Coeur d’Alene Resort. See all the trees and join in the many festivities November 26-29th

“Mel’s Friend” Moves to Canfield Middle School Library

Rhea Giffin visits Canfield Middle School

Canfield Middle School in Coeur d’Alene was given the Opal Brooten Purchase Award at the 43rd Annual Art on the Green Festival held on the grounds of North Idaho College.  The school’s selection committee enthusiastically chose “Mel’s Friend,” a mixed-media papier mache cairn sculpture by Rhea Giffin.  The sculpture is an homage to Mel McCuddin’s painting titled “Marker.” Go to the Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d’Alene or view link:  Giffin waived the amount of purchase that extended beyond the award given by Citizens’ Council for the Arts so that the school could receive the sculpture.

To show their gratitude, art teacher, Mrs. Wing invited Ms. Giffin to give an informal demonstration to Canfield’s 3-d art class students who are working on their own papier mache projects.  Spokesman-Review photographer Kathy Plonka also attended. See links:
