CAH Local Artist Spotlight features Tom Tower

LEWISTON, Idaho - The LCSC Center for Arts & History (CAH) presents the second exhibition for the new Local Artist Spotlight program: Tom Tower - Skirting Suburbia.  The opening reception for the exhibition will take place Thursday, December 5, from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the upstairs galleries.  The exhibition runs December 5 – January 13.

Tower discovered his love of art, specifically watercolor and drawing, while attending Eastern Washington University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Fine Art.

As art instructor for the Asotin School District for the last 20 years, Tower has also been the yearbook instructor, which provides the opportunity for him to teach photography and design.  Tower’s love for color and texture led him to begin working with acrylics, handmade paper, and other found materials in the collage pieces which are displayed in this exhibition.

Tower’s artwork has been featured at the Café Sage in Lewiston as well as in two Art Walk events in downtown Lewiston.  His work has also been on display at Barrister Winery in Spokane.

The Local Artist Spotlight featuring Tom Tower is brought to the LCSC Center for Arts & History by sponsorship from The Diamond Shop and through grants from US Bancorp, the Idaho Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

CAH believes strongly in the local artistic community.  In order for local artists to thrive, CAH recognizes the importance of supporting them by providing opportunities to further their work.  The Center for Arts & History Local Artist Spotlight program features three to four local artists in a variety of different media in a quality exhibition space each exhibit season (August - July).

The gallery is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Admission is free, but donations are welcome.  Docent tours of the exhibit can be scheduled by calling the Gallery at 208.792.2243.
