New exhibit opens Friday at CAH
Artist Gordon Talley and the Palouse Women’s Caucus for the Arts will have their artwork on display at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History starting on Friday, and there will be an opening celebration at 5-8 p.m. that night at the Center, located at 415 Main St. in Lewiston.
The celebration is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
Tally will have his “Western Landscapes” collected on display in the Main Gallery. Tally was chosen at the 2007 Artist in Residence at Utah’s Arches National Park and was invited to create an ornament for the White House Christmas Tree as part of a celebration of the national parks. Tally became a full-time artist in the 1970s and likes the creation process to “tangible result mediation.
