Prichard Art Gallery to Participate in Moscow First Thursday Events

Wednesday, August 6


MOSCOW, Idaho – The University of Idaho Prichard Art Gallery will be open special extended hours this week as part of Moscow’s First Thursday event on Aug. 7.  The gallery will present “The Fruit Plate Project” by Roger Rowley and “Bystander” by Marc La Pointe. 

For three years, Prichard director Roger Rowley cut up fruit for breakfast and photographed the arrangements for “The Fruit Plate Project.” The final collection consists of 200 images, each one square foot printed. The plates are arranged daily by month, providing a meditation on four seasons of fruit.

Marc La Pointe combines common household items and video to negotiate the intersection between private and public spaces. “Bystander” will occupy the Prichard’s Children’s Studio.
 
A selection of work from the summer’s “SARA. The Work of Sara Joyce” will remain for First Thursday events.

Special Prichard Art Gallery hours are 1-8 p.m. Thursday, 1-7 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. The gallery will be closed from Aug. 10-22. The gallery, an outreach facility of the University of Idaho College of Art and Architecture, is located at 414 S. Main St. in downtown Moscow. Admission is free. Additional information is available at www.uidaho.edu/prichardartgallery.
