This exhibition brings together Farm Security Administration photographs of the 1930s, including Walker Evans, Russell Lee and Marion Post Wolcott, with those of contemporary photographers such as Judy Bankhead, Robert Dawson and Brenda Ann Kenneally.

Robert Motherwell: Te Quiero
This exhibit presents a rare opportunity to view painting and drawing from the late 1950's through the 1980's by Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), the youngest and most prolific member of the famous group of artists who founded the Abstract Expressionist movement in New York in the 1940's. Motherwell is considered by many to be an essential figure for understanding art of the 20th century, and the direction of contemporary art. He was a painter, a printmaker, an author, an editor.

Robert Taplin: The Five Outer Planets
Robert Taplin's interpretation of the five outer planets and the relationships among them at once comprise beautiful works of art and raise fascinating questions. Why did the sculptor choose these five planets and characterize them in this unforgettable way? What are their relationships to myth, to each other, to themselves and, ultimately, to you?

Romey Stuckart: Paintings
The panhandle of northern Idaho is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in North America. Sparsely populated, the small communities east of Sandpoint that border Lake Pend Oreille are backed by forests that stretch across the Cabinet and Selkirk mountains until they merge with the Canadian Rockies. To stand in these densely forested mountains, among the firs, pines, and birches, can be both moving and somewhat daunting. Here nature is wilderness. In 1987, when Romey Stuckart first moved to Hope, Idaho, her response as a painter was to adopt these woods as her subject matter. This exhibition of paintings from 1990 to 2002 acts as a record of her response to her chosen environment, as literal depiction of nature in paintings up to 1992 and then the shift to the organic, abstracted paintings that followed. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. PDF created with Adobe Acrobat.
Ron Jude: 45th Parallel
A photographic project examining McCall, Idaho's transformation from a rural mountain community to a resort destination, and the impact these changes have had on the social identity of the arena. The 45th parallel signifies McCall's latitudinal location--halfway between the equator and North Pole--and also serves as a metaphor for a critical juncture in the town's history.
