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.

The Third Street Gallery greets the winter season with Cozy, an invitational exhibition featuring fiber artists of the region. This is a time of year for turning inward, for becoming cozy in the warm spaces and textures of the home. It is also, somewhat paradoxically, a time when people reach out for connections with others in celebration of the season’s many holidays.
The fiber arts, with their warmth and reliance on patterns of connection, are a perfect metaphor for winter’s balance of social flurries and domestic comforts.
Cozy highlights each maker’s personal relationship with materials and processes while revealing how the fiber arts connect the region’s artists.
