LEWISTON, Idaho – The exhibit “Palouse Women Artists: A Stitch in Time” will be on display at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History on May 6-27 with an artist reception set for 1-3 p.m. on May 6 at the Center, located at 415 Main Street in Lewiston.
Palouse Women Artists’ members work in many different mediums and support and encourage each other’s artistic creativity, expression, and growth. For many of the members, contemporary issues are represented in their work, but the past and future also is included. For example, stitching can mean the tradition of needlepoint, or working with fibers. Some of the work has been taught through generations, while others use tradition for inspiration to create works in other mediums.
Moscow sculptor and mixed-media artist Geri Sayler’s installation of aluminum mesh and deconstructed mesh fibers titled “Miasma” hangs in Gallery IV at the Center. Sayler creates site-specific installations for museums and galleries using fibers as sculptural media.
The exhibit is brought to the Center through grants from US Bank and artsIDAHO.
The Center is open Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and features free admission but donations are welcome. For more information about the exhibitions or to schedule a docent tour, visit www.lcsc.edu/cah or call 208 792-2243.
