Exploring Meridian's Artistic Spirit
In downtown Meridian, we saw Plein Air artist Mike Polk just finishing this watercolor of the venerable Tolleth House. Over the coming months, Meridian may see more of the Plein Air Painters of Idaho out and about. They are now painting throughout the neighborhood and getting ready for their August Meridian-themed exhibit at Initial Point Gallery. Artist Mike Polk and Hidden Gem Events owner Elizabeth Burgess are shown here with Gunner, a well-known dog in the area. Elizabeth has put a lot of effort into renovating this old building and opening this location for celebrations, weddings, and other events. In 1997, this building, which is on 2nd and E State Avenue in the heart of Meridian, was added to the National Register of Historic Places. MeridianCity.org
