To mark the end of another successful year showcasing and facilitating the sale of fine art by celebrated artists around the Inland Northwest is the Art Spirit Gallery’s annual small artworks show. More than 30 regional artists contribute to the show, creating smaller-scale pieces appropriately priced for collectors on tighter budgets, short on display space or shopping for lots of gifts. While the show opened two weeks earlier than past years to allow for extended shopping, another artist reception is set for Friday, Dec. 14. All art in the exhibition is also featured on the gallery’s website, which now allows for online purchasing. That means you don’t have to wait if you see a piece that truly “speaks to you,” as gallery owner Blair Williams likes to say. Also, look for new pieces coming in throughout the show’s month-and-a-half-long run.
Through Jan. 5; open Wed-Sat from 11 am-6 pm; reception Dec. 14 from 5-8 pm • Free admission • The Art Spirit Gallery • 415 Sherman Ave., Coeur d’Alene • theartspiritgallery.com • 208-765-6006
