Works by Taylor, Jones on display at Libey Gallery

Exhibits by Colfax photographer Naomi Taylor and former resident Jerry Jones are on display at the Libey Gallery in Colfax through the end of the month.

Taylor, of “Gypsy Heart Photography,” grew up traveling the Pacific Northwest with her mom, showing dogs, according to a gallery news release. Her mother loved photography, and Taylor was inspired to keep her memory alive through photography after her sudden death.

A longtime former Colfax resident and 55-year staff member of the Whitman County Gazette, Jones chose paintings for the exhibit inspired by his travel to Australia. He participated in a Rotary exchange to Queensland and New South Wales in 1975, and photos taken there were published by the Gazette in a booklet titled “Friends Down Under.” He continued adding paintings of the people in the photos to his collection for the next 47 years.

The Libey Gallery, located in The Bettie Steiger Center adjacent to the Colfax Library at 102 S. Main St., is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 1-5 p.m. Saturdays.

‘The Salon’ offers author readings and Victorian crafts as part of Moscow Artwalk

An evening of author readings and mini-lessons set for next Thursday at Moscow’s McConnell Manson was organized in the spirit of Dr. Fredrick Church, who donated the mansion to Latah County.

Church hoped “that it would serve as a gathering place for curious minds,” according to a Latah County Historical Society news release announcing “The Salon,” which is planned for 5:30 p.m. at the mansion, 110 S. Adams St.

Authors David Harlon, Alexandra Teague and Judy Sobeloff will read from original works, followed by a short wine tasting lesson with Camas Prairie Winery, music with the Ukulele Players of the Palouse and a Victorian craft. There will be a no-host bar by Camas Prairie Winery after the wine tasting.

The free event is part of the city of Moscow’s Artwalk program, which runs the third Thursday of the month through June.
