"Spring Flowers" by Julene Ewert

All Kinds of Happy

New hallway gallery show
featuring the work of Julene Ewert

Through October

Now in the hallway gallery at the 1912 Center we are featuring the work of Julene Ewert in a solo show titled All Kinds of Happy.

Julene is a Moscow local artist who loves common materials which she uses in surprising ways. Bits and pieces of objects from the past add a deep flavor to her work. She has been inspired by her grandmother who loved to sew, quilt and do embroidery. She is also infulenced by nature, travel and everyday life.

The work featured in the show are both originals and prints and everything is for sale. To purchase any of the pieces, please visit the 1912 Center's management office. The show will be up in the hallway through October.

What's Next?

The facility now has all the windows replaced and it looks beautiful thanks to our fantastic community donors' support! Windows may still be adopted for a $1,912 donation that may be made over time. Leave your own legacy at the 1912 Center with an engraved plaque on the window you choose and help the next construction project at the facility. We may look all renovated from the outside but there are 20,000 square feet of space to get restored upstairs in the building to create more gathering spaces for our community.

In 2018, the roof (at the end of its 15-year life span) will be replaced during a summer project, and the monument sign on the corner of the property will finally be put in so that you will know that you are indeed at the 1912 Center! We are also in the process of raising $2 million in funds to be able to complete the second-floor renovations that will include a small auditorium, a community living room, an historic classroom, bathrooms and more. Come check the space out on a tour during one of our summer Plaza Concerts or Winter Markets so you can see first-hand what we are raising money to do.

Questions about the renovation project and what comes next? Please contact Jenny Kostroff in the 1912 Center office at (208) 669-2249 or e-mail the 1912 Center at 1912Center@gmail.com and she will happily share with you what is happening at the building. Thank you so much for your support and shared excitement for getting more space renovated inside the 1912 Center in the next three years!

In the meantime you can visit our Facebook page for weekly updates on happenings in the building and photo albums of past events in the spaces to help you plan your next reason to come to the 1912 Center.
