Each year for more than a decade, the now-defunct Tinman Gallery had invited a group of the region’s most celebrated artists to participate in its themed, invitational art shows. Even though the Tinman’s gallery days are behind it, this invitational tradition carries on through the Spokane Art School. This year’s show — boasting a “who’s who” in the local art scene participant roster — borrows inspiration from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Jules Verne’s classic sci-fi novel published almost 150 years ago. Though the show officially opened on June 5 with an artist reception, these artist tributes to Captain Nemo and the Nautilus are on display through the summer, so make sure to stop in during gallery hours as you stroll the quaint Garland District.
Show runs through Aug. 29; gallery open Tue-Fri, from 10 am-5 pm • Spokane Art School • 811 W. Garland • spokaneartschool.net
