Third Street Gallery Invites Submissions for Un-fancy Exhibition


The City of Moscow and Moscow Arts Commission announced opening of Nov. 5 – Jan. 4 submission period for Un-fancy, a Third Street Gallery exhibition of visual and literary art slated to open Jan. 20, 2022.

 The exhibition is inclusive of works that feature mundane or utilitarian media, subject matter, and content to highlight the humble beauty of plain-spoken objects and situations.

The exhibition opportunity is an open call to visual and literary artists residing in the Palouse region, and is open to all media with the exception of video and sound-based works. There are no size or length restrictions for visual or literary submissions, and Gallery staff will include as many poems and visual artworks as will reasonably fit in the exhibition space. If submissions for the exhibition exceed the limitations of space, Gallery staff will ensure that at least one piece from each artist is displayed.

The submission period closes Jan. 4, 2022 at 5 p.m. For more information and to submit materials, visit



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 opening in September 1997. The gallery features artworks in a wide range of media, subject matter, and content while presenting a curatorial vision open to all cultures and art forms. The Third Street Gallery exhibits the work of established and emerging makers from the Palouse and the broader Inland Northwest, celebrating 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 hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.

The Gallery is ADA accessible on the east entrance of Moscow City Hall, and the elevator on the north side of the building provides access to the second and third floors.
