August 28, 2020 (Moscow, Idaho) --
The Third Street Gallery presents a new gallery installation entitled Starburst
September 4 through December 4, 2020. Starburst
is an exhibition of work from artist Kevin Rhodes. Rhodes, a painter who worked in Moscow prior to his recent move to Spokane Valley, Wash., presents paintings that exude the joy of color and structure. These elements strike a balance as the artist works by instinct and thoughtful response to each painting's development.
Also featured in the exhibition is a series of paintings by Rhodes' wife and fellow artist, Janet. The two artists share an enthusiasm for intense hues and geometric compositions. Enjoying Kevin and Janet's work at Starburst
is a great way to celebrate the start of autumn -- with a burst of color!
Viewing hours for Starburst
will be Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The gallery will be closed on Labor Day, Veterans Day and the day of and after Thanksgiving. Please observe social distancing protocols and wear a mask when inside City Hall. If you do not have a mask, you can find single use masks available at the east entrance.

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.
