Calling All Artists

For Community Art Show
"Reigning Cats and Dogs"

Heart of the Arts, Inc. (HAI) is inviting artists of all ages in our community to participate in the 1912 Center’s next hallway gallery show titled “Reigning Cats and Dogs" set to open at the begining of February.

This show of new, original work will be comprised of pieces based on the show’s theme of cats, dogs or both. All sizes and variety of media by artists of all ages are welcome. Work for the hallway gallery may have a relief of up to 3 inches. Sculptures are also welcome, provided they can be displayed in our Great Room display cabinets, which are 8 inches deep.

On Monday, February 3rd from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. participants may deliver a maximum of two finished, ready-to-hang pieces (framed, if appropriate) to the 1912 Center’s management office. The 1912 Center is located at 412 E. Third Street between Adams and Van Buren Streets and the office is located inside the Senior Center.

On Friday, February 7th from 5 to 8 p.m. an opening reception and “Best of Show” voting will take place at the 1912 Center. The reception is free and open to the public. It will feature music by the Gypsydawgs, free theme-appropriate snacks and take-home treats for your favorite furry friends.

Winners of the most votes for the favorite cat piece and the favorite dog piece will be awarded “Best of Show” along with the cash prize of $50.

The work will be displayed through March of 2014 and artists may choose to sell their work. Please provide sale prices when delivering. For more information, please contact the HAI office at (208) 669-2249.

2014 Winter Markets

Last two markets of the season!

February 8, 2014
March 1, 2014

Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Winter Market has two market dates left this season. Saturdays during the winter months Heart of the Arts, Inc. hosts over 30 vendors at each market in the Great Room, on the Balcony, and out on the Plaza in front of the 1912 Center for your chance to shop for unique gifts and perishables at each market date.

This season the market has extended shopping by an hour so you get more time to check out all that the vendors have for sale. More time to shop for your valentine! We hope to see you at the markets.

Support the 1912 Center

Our next project needs your help.

This winter, HAI continues to raise money for our next construction project. We need everyone's help to get there. You can help us to make the next project happen. The money raised will go to the restoration of the 1912 Center's east end exterior, a project we hope to be able to bid out later this spring once we have the funding in place.

You can make a very big difference by making your donation to the 1912 Center today. Send us a check made out to "Heart of the Arts, Inc." or click on the "donate" button below to use a credit card and help us make more possible this year. Our 57 boarded-up windows can be replaced as soon as we have funding. Have you thought about sponsoring one for yourself, a family member or friend, or your reunion class year from Moscow High School? For $1,912 you can pick a window to sponsor and we will install a plaque that will stay with the facility into its next 100 years. Now how is that for a personal legacy? Thank you very much for your help!
