Bob Fergison – Expressive Figures

Come welcome a life retrospective of longtime Wallowa County resident Bob Fergison, landscape and figure painter who has lived here since 1989. He specializes in art renderings of boxers, horses, and nude figures. His inspiration comes from Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, and Max Beckmann.

Bob is suffering from two types of cancer and is residing at a health care facility in Seattle, so will be unable to attend. If you have work of Bob’s that you’d like to offer for the exhibit, please let Cheryl Coughlan know at [email protected]

Opening Reception Sunday, January 10th at 2 PM. This event will flow naturally into our open mic at 4 PM, and we encourage friends of Bob to offer music or poetry in his honor at this time. The show will run through Feb 17.

Nuunimnix Art Show

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Nez Perce National Historical Park.  As part of the year’s celebration events, the park reached out to Nez Perce artists to form the Nuunimníx Art Show.  In nimiipuutimt, the Nez Perce language, nuunimníx means “our very own.” With this art show, Nez Perce National Historical Park sought to celebrate Nez Perces and Nez Perce descendants that make traditional items for family, friends, and loved ones – items that exemplify the word nuunimníx.  The Nuunimníx Art Show honors the artists, their teachers and elders, and the culture and community that lies at the foundation of the artists’ work. Runs May 30 – June 27.

This show also marks the debut of our permanent Alvin Josephy life exhibit upstairs in the loft. Come check it out!
