Art on the Prairie

When: Fri., Sept. 5, 4-8 p.m. and Sat., Sept. 6, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2014

This inaugural juried art show is more accessible than it may seem at first glance. Juried shows don’t necessarily mean super-expensive, fine art, but rather the fact that not just any person can show up and call themselves an artist. The dozen regional artists showing and selling their works this weekend range from elegant, handmade jewelry to colorful, hand-painted, Shaker-style boxes by local folk artist Dianna Chelf. Also featured are photographers, hand-poured candles, paintings, fiber art and glasswork. Held at the historic Moran Prairie Grange overlooking the north end of the rolling Palouse Hills, the location and late summer season make for a prime setting.
Art on the Prairie • Fri, Sept. 5, from 4-8 pm; Sat, Sept. 6, from 10 am-4 pm • $3/ages 12 and under free • Moran Prairie Grange • 6106 S. Palouse Hwy. •
