Plein Air artist demo at CAH

LEWISTON, Idaho - The LCSC Center for Arts & History will host a Plein Air demonstration and paint-out on Saturday, May 31, with Local Artist Spotlight artist Aaron Johnson of Moscow. The event takes place from 9:00 a.m. – noon.

The Plein Air demonstration concludes the Aaron Johnson: It Smells Like Money exhibit.  Participants will meet in the 2nd floor galleries for a brief discussion with the artist, then set out into the open air to capture one of Beautiful Downtown Lewiston’s fleeting landmarks before its pending demolition.  The building is located across the street from the Lewiston Tribune and was once home to the Beuk Aie Temple.

The event is free and refreshments will be provided.  Attendees should bring their own supplies, easel, and sunscreen.  Reservations are encouraged by calling 208.792.2371.

The Local Artist Spotlight, featuring Aaron Johnson, is brought to the LCSC Center for Arts & History by sponsorship from Charles A. Brown, Attorney at Law; Don & Elizabeth Greggain; and through grants from US Bancorp, the Idaho Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Center for Arts & History’s Local Artist Spotlight program features local artists working in diverse genres and media in CAH’s quality exhibition space.  The Center believes in the local artistic community and is helping local artists thrive through knowledge, action, and opportunity.

Through this exhibition, the gallery is open Monday - 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.
