Third Street Gallery

The Third Street Gallery is a space for art in the heart of downtown Moscow. City of Moscow Arts Staff and members of the Moscow Arts Commission have worked together to create artistic direction for the Third Street Gallery since the gallery’s beginnings in 1998. The gallery features works in a wide range of media, subject matter, and content while presenting a curatorial vision open to all cultures and art forms. By including the work of established and emerging makers from the Palouse and the broader Inland Northwest, the Third Street Gallery celebrates the creative excellence of the region in a well-loved public space.  

The Third Street Gallery features artwork on the second and third floors inside Moscow City Hall. The building was designed by architect James Knox Taylor in 1911, and was formerly the Moscow Federal Building. Entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 as a Second Renaissance Revival brick building, the structure now houses City offices and meeting spaces such as the City Council Chambers. The Third Street Gallery is an essential part of this building, as it brings art into the center of civic life in the City of Moscow.

Third Street Gallery is located inside Moscow City Hall at 206 E. Third St. Moscow, ID.  

Regular gallery hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday.

Current Exhibition

Jazz Hands

Exhibition: February 7, 2020 - April 3, 2020

Reception: February 19, 2020 from 5-7 p.m.                          

February is a month of musical celebration in Moscow, Idaho, as student and professional performers take the stage at the University of Idaho’s Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. 

Exuberant appreciation for music takes many forms, and in dance, enthusiasm often travels down the length of the arms to cheerful jazz hands. At once spontaneous, campy, choreographed, and time-honored, jazz hands embody the joy of moving to music. 

In the Third Street Gallery’s exhibition Jazz Hands, artists echo that celebration in works that reflect the hand’s response to the call of music. Graphic design and illustration dance to the rhythm and flow of the song.
