April 13, 2021 (Moscow, Idaho) —
The City of Moscow announces the opening of the Third Street Gallery’s newest exhibition, Silver & Gold,
on April 15. Silver & Gold
features work from University of Idaho Art + Design alumni and reveals their growth as artmakers. 19 Vandals from 1971 to 2020 are represented in this show. Gallery viewers can expect to see works created during each artist's studies at the University of Idaho and more recent works.
Formal education in the arts is a foundation for a lifetime of evolution and experimentation. Far from being a stamp of completion, a degree is a license to pursue ongoing inquiry and the development of a life rooted in the arts. Silver & Gold
presents old and new artworks as evidence of transformation in the studio practices of Art + Design alumni.
The Third Street Gallery is located on the second and third floor of Moscow City Hall. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. To view the online gallery, visit http://bit.ly/silverandgoldonlinegallery
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.
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.
