The Palouse Plein Air Traveling exhibit comes to the foyer of the Colfax Library for the month of March. This exhibit features the award winning work of 10 of the artists who competed in the Palouse Plein Air competition in Moscow, Idaho last fall.

Among the prize winners on display in Colfax are Andy Sewell 1st place entry, “Garden Studebaker” and Martha McIver’s “September: Sunny, Cloudy, Windy,” winner of the Artists’ Choice award.
