February kicks off with a brand new "Art Collective" in The Libey Gallery at The Center at Colfax Library. For the coming year, the north gallery will feature the work of eight artists who will rotate their paintings and photographs.

Following is a list of the featured artists and their works currently on exhibit:

Vicki Broeckel has lived in Dusty all her life and is a fourth-generation farmer. Her love and admiration for the Palouse comes out in every painting.

Ken Carper shares a collection of colorful images from the Southwest, including Antelope Canyon, Arches and Bryce National parks, Dead Horse Point State Park, Canyonlands and Monument Valley.

The subject matter of Nona Hengen's paintings are the houses, barns, tractors, horses, hills and fields of our region. Her deep attachment to the land and to country life, coupled with her fine powers of observation and recreation, are evident in her high quality giclees.


Bob Krikac shares his travel sketches in an exhibit that highlights architectural treasures, from Paris to Pullman.

Tom Mohr's work captures the culture of our region through his colorful photographs of local events and celebrations. The Palouse Empire Fair, opening day of pheasant season and other gatherings are subjects of Mohr's "Extended Snapshots."

Nancy Rothwell demonstrates her love of animals through her colorful exhibit called "Raining Cats and Dogs." Rothwell captures the personalities of her canine and feline subjects in watercolor, gouache and acrylic formats.

Rob Smith works in a variety of media and presents a wide array of subject matters. His current exhibit includes watercolor images of local barns, including Old Round, Leonard Splendor and Little Red.

Carrie Vielle's images explore the universal, expressive language of the human body through mixed media collage.

The south Libey Gallery will continue to rotate artists and exhibits every one-to-two months. Contact the library for a schedule if you are interested in showing your work or joining the artist collective for 2020.

Gallery hours are Mondays – Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m .; Thursdays – Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 5 p.m.
