Current Exhibits

 

“Idaho Commission on the Arts Fellowship Exhibit, Body Beautiful, and Rethink Downtown” exhibits opens February 1 with a reception starting at 5:30 p.m. in the main floor galleries. The exhibits run February 1 – March 23 at Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History, located at 415 Main Street in Lewiston.

“Idaho Commission on the Arts Fellowship Exhibit” shares the work of five artists receiving Fellowships and two receiving Honorable Mentions in 2018. The artists were chosen by a peer-review panel using an anonymous process and the panel recommendations were approved by ICA Commissioners in May 2017. The Idaho Commission on the Arts is committed to sharing the work of Idaho artists and connecting all Idahoans to meaningful experiences with the arts. This eclectic group of artists exemplifies the many ways that excellence may be achieved and how art, as a category of human endeavor, expands to allow and encourage all that the imagination may offer. Seven artists are featured in this exhibit.*

“Body Beautiful” is an invitational call to art exhibit in a celebration of the human body. The exhibit celebrates all body types, all races, all genders, all abilities and disabilities. The exhibit opens conversations concerning body size and how it shifts its focus from judging others based on the size of their body to judging the way that media and society often criticizes the human form. Seven artist are featured in this exhibit.**

“Rethink Downtown” is an exhibit created as part of the Lewiston Downtown Master Plan directed by Beautiful Downtown Lewiston (BDL) and an Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. BDL issued a call for artists to lead citizen engagement for creative place-making. Five artists*** are featured in the “Revision Downtown” exhibit with artwork centered on themes of downtown Lewiston’s future sense of community, vitality, and built environment. Community members who view the exhibit will be asked to provide feedback via a survey during the exhibit, which will inform the development of the Master Plan for Downtown Lewiston. These exhibits are brought to the community through grant funding from ARTSIdaho and US Bank.
