Art Spirit 20th Anniversary

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 5 2017

When it was founded two decades ago in a small house down the street, it would have been hard for most to imagine how the Art Spirit Gallery would grow to become the regional art institution it is today. To commemorate the gallery’s 20th anniversary, this month’s show is a look back on the art space’s legacy, as well as a look forward to its future, and the continuation of its mission set in place by its founder, the late Steve Gibbs, to offer contemporary art by regional artists to collectors near and far. Featuring more than 150 pieces representing some of the gallery’s best-known artists — Robert Grimes, Beth Cavener, Mel McCuddin, Harold Balazs and many others — this show is an ideal time to glimpse a two-decade retrospective of the Art Spirit, and to be reminded of why the gallery is such an important part of the region’s arts community.

Reception on Fri, July 14 from 5-8 pm; open through Aug. 5; Sun-Tue, 9 am-6 pm and Wed-Sat, 9 am-7 pm • Free admission • The Art Spirit Gallery • 415 Sherman Ave., Coeur d’Alene • • 208-765-6006
