LEWISTON, Idaho – Palouse artist Jan Vogtman’s watercolor exhibit “Reflections by Jan Vogtman” is on display through July 7 at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History, located at 415 Main St. in Lewiston.

Vogtman grew up in Minneapolis and moved to Idaho in 1985. She currently lives on the east ridge of Moscow Mountain near Troy.

Vogtman said she is inspired by rural landscapes, old farms, and aging buildings with character, and her work is best described as traditional and realistic. She has taken workshops from well-known artists and in 1998 became interested in watercolor while taking classes at the University of Idaho. She joined Palouse Watercolor Socius (PWS) in 1999 and has participated in more than 30 shows.

Vogtman has been accepted into juried shows in the Northwest and had her first solo exhibit of plein air paintings in 2013. She is a member of Palouse Watercolor Socius, Northwest Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America and Idaho Watercolor Society.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Law Office of Charles A. Brown and Inland 360, and grant funding from US Bank and artsIDAHO.
