The Moscow Arts Commission and the City of Moscow invite artwork submissions for the upcoming juried exhibition, re: present, at the Third Street Gallery. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 31, 2024. 

The act of making a representational artwork calls for the artist to be present, to be fully immersed in the subject matter. The surface of a representational artwork may depict what something looks like, but it functions more deeply as an artifact of communion between the artist and the subject. This connection is the focus of re: present at the Third Street Gallery, featuring paintings made with high regard for presence in the moment, presence with the observed, and presence with the artist as observer.  Artworks in this exhibition may explore the entire spectrum of representational approaches to painting. This juried exhibition is open to artists across the nation, and will be adjudicated by artist and University of Idaho arts educator, Val Carter.

Submissions accepted online until Friday, May 31, 2024 at: information about the Third Street Gallery is available on the City of Moscow website: Support for City of Moscow Arts Department programming comes from the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. 

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 is located inside Moscow City Hall at 206 E. Third St. Moscow, ID. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.
