Artist Shelly Gilmore’s exhibit “Fabricated Imagination”

Date: April 3 – 24
April 2- 24

“Fabricated Imagination” art by Moscow Idaho Artist Shelly Gilmore at Artisans at the Dahmen Barn. The Exhibit continues until April 24.

Gilmore’s creations of reclaimed discarded automotive, farm, and industrial treasures will delight the audience. Gilmore creates functional items like lamps made from pistons, alternators, sewing machines, and more. Her mythical outdoor art is delightful from small pieces to larger-than-life-size creatures.

“Projects pop into my mind when I stumble upon parts and pieces, and the dreams don’t stop until I cut, weld, braze, and shape the scraps into treasures”

-Shelly Gilmore

You may have seen some of her public installations at the Neil Library in Pullman, Moscow Library, and the 1912 center in Moscow. She has been featured on Northwest Public Broadcasting from Welder to Artist.

Last week to check out the Bird Brained exhibit at The Dahmen Barns

Bird Brained

Mourning Dove by Susan Segoto

Date: March 6 – March 27

“A fun lighthearted exhibit features fun bird-themed art in a variety of mediums. In these crazy times and coming out of a pandemic when the world feels like it is in a disarray this exhibit will surely make you chuckle. Just a few of the examples of works on display are bird whistles created from ceramic, birds created from paper and fine oil paintings of eagles.” (https://www.artisanbarn.org/events-classes.php#content_right)

SIGN-UP FOR PALOUSE PLEIN AIR 2022

PALOUSE PLEIN AIR: September 5 – 15, 2022

Palouse Plein Air is an annual painting event that takes place every September, with experiences including painting workshops and a juried exhibition at the Third Street Gallery inside Moscow City Hall.

Historic Moscow, Idaho and the beautiful Palouse are the perfect destination for plein air artists, and the annual Palouse Plein Air painting event connects artists with the region’s landscape and arts culture.  French for “open air,” the phrase “plein air” (pronounced plen-air) describes the act of painting outdoors. The outdoor experience on the Palouse is particularly rich, as its rolling hills, rivers, mountains, fields, farms, and homes tell the long history of the landscape.

Guided by the vision of the Moscow Arts Commission and University of Idaho art professor Aaron Cordell Johnson, Palouse Plein Air began in 2010, and the event continues to grow. A collaboration of community partners makes this growth possible; the City of Moscow Arts Department and the University of Idaho College of Art + Architecture work together to make a great event for artists and art lovers alike.

April 29 – September 1

Registration will be available online via Submittable. No emailed or paper registrations will be accepted. The registration form is available below, or by clicking this link: https://moscowarts.submittable.com/submit

Spring Art Exhibits at the Libey Gallery

Spring Art Exhibits at the Libey Gallery

The Libey Gallery invites the community during the month of April to visit two new exhibits by Colfax artist Lynnea Vantrease and Kennewick photographer Nancy Richter.

Lynnea Vantrease, a self-taught painter enjoys painting the outdoors from florals to landscapes using mainly oils and acrylics. She hopes that through her work one feels inspired to slow down and enjoy simple beauty. The inspiration and theme for her current exhibit, “Walk with Me” is the chance for her to share how she sees the world.

“Perfectly Palouse” photography exhibit by Nancy Ritcher was inspired by the beauty of the Palouse. Since Nancy was 12 years old, she always had a camera to record people and places, flowers and weathered paint, animals and events. It is her love of clouds that inspired her to start wandering the back roads of the Northwest looking for land to match the clouds.

The Libey Gallery is located in The Bettie Steiger Center adjacent to Colfax Library. The gallery open hours are Monday-Friday 10:00 am to 6 pm and Saturday 1:00-5:00 pm.
