Art Show, the Center
Colfax Branch Library
Saturday, Apr. 27

Come see the exciting new artwork and photography in the Libey Gallery located in The Center at Colfax Library. The South gallery features colorful oil paintings of the Palouse by Jacquline Daisley, including old trucks, farm scenes and landscapes.

New exhibits in the North Gallery include Nancy Rothwell’s “Freedom and Joy,” an exhibit of acrylic collage paintings, she once again uses symbols to tell a story. The beauty and freedom of female dancers plays well against other symbols (like house keys) which represent the opposite of freedom. Again, she wants to leave mystery so the viewer establishes their own interpretations of the stories being told.

Tom Mohr captures the culture of our region through his large, panoramic photographs of local events and celebrations. Come experience his newest additions, Palouse Landscape, Main Street Accident, and Jil Orders Cherry Pie (at the Uniontown sausage feed).

Nona Hengen shares two of her high quality framed Giclees ready for hanging. “Making Sauerkraut” pays homage to her mother’s 1931-1936 diary entries speaking to the annual fall ritual. In the haunting, “Summer’s Labor’s Lost,” sunlight plays upon the dust covered jars fill of an abandoned homestead root cellar.

Ken Carper is now showing “Palouse in Transition, Silver White Winter Melts Into Spring.” This collection of images beautifully captures the seasonal transitions of our region.

Additional artists include: Vicki Broeckel, Carrie Vielle, Bob Krikac, and Rob Smith.

Libey Gallery hours are Mondays – Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays – Fridays 10 a.m. to 6 .m. and Saturdays and Sundays 1 to 5 p.m. For more information about The Libey Gallery, contact the Colfax Branch of Whitman County Library at 509-397-4366 or visit 102 S. Main Street, Colfax.
