Of course, enameling is alive and well in the Northwest. Harold Balazs, the celebrated Mead sculptor and artist, has been working in enamels since the 1940s. Beginning Friday, more than 30 of his enamel pieces will be on display at the Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d’Alene.
Joining Balazs in exhibiting at Art Spirit will be 15 enamel artists from across the country, names culled from a list of artists Balazs has known and admired, according to an Art Spirit news release. Among the regional representatives: Allen and Mary Dee Dodge of Coeur d’Alene, Michael Horswill of Hayden Lake, Cheryll Leo-Gwin of Redmond, Wash., and Delia DeLapp of Eagle, Idaho.
