Longtime Kalispell artist shares his ‘places and memories’


Phillips Studio & Gallery is hosting a special exhibition of paintings by Kalispell artist Marsha Davis. “Places & Memories” is a collection of some of Davis’ favorite places to paint. She has made it her mission to capture some of the spectacular beauty of these places by repainting, revisiting and reworking pieces from this collection.

Davis, a landscape, figurative and still life artist, works in watercolor and oil painting in the style of impressionist realism. She is an award-winning Signature Member of the Tucson Plein Air Painters, the Montana Watercolor Society, and an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America.

Davis moved to Kalispell in 1972 with her husband, Dr. Jack Davis (who helped establish the ALERT emergency helicopter service based at Kalispell Regional Hospital) and together raised two children and a herd of cattle Limousin on their ranch.

She and her husband were involved in the local community and traveled to Mexico together for charity. Jack worked on a Rotary school project while Marsha taught art to children.

“Places & Memories” will remain on view and available for purchase through July 30 at the Kalispell Center Mall gallery.
