BLACK LIVES MATTER ARTIST GRANT EXHIBITION
Over the past year, three universities awarded grants to 60 artists from across Washington and Oregon "who are using their voices, experiences, and artistic expression toward social justice efforts in response to systemic racism," according to Washington State University's Jordan Schnitzer Museum, which hosts 20 of those artists. Additional programming includes an intergenerational discussion with several of the participating artists Sept. 29. Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Pullman, free, Tue-Fri 1-4 pm; Sat 10 am-4 pm (CARRIE SCOZZARO)

STAYING HOME: INTERIOR VIEWS FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE JUNDT ART MUSEUM
At a time when many of us have had enough of looking at our own four walls, the Jundt is inviting us to see others' spaces through their eyes. This exhibition brings together more than 20 prints, photos and paintings from the museum's permanent collection, each of which relates to the theme of domestic space — even if they happen to be inside looking out, like Emily Trueblood's linocut print Barrow Street (1975). Jundt Art Museum, Gonzaga University, free, Mon-Fri 10 am-3 pm (E.J. IANNELLI)

Through March 12, 2022
MIRROR, MIRROR: THE PRINTS OF ALISON SAAR
LA-based artist Alison Saar is perhaps best known as a sculptor who draws inspiration from ancient European, African and American folk art but is resolutely contemporary in her approach. Mirror, Mirror showcases five of Saar's sculptures as well as about 50 of her prints, which maintain consistency of theme and technique despite an eclectic use of media. That mix can include anything from discarded chair backs and ceiling tin to collages of rags and handkerchiefs. Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU, Pullman, free, Tue-Fri 1-4 pm; Sat 10 am-4 pm (EI)

Sept. 25

LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY: TREASURES FROM THE DRIEHAUS COLLECTION
Tiffany lamps, synonymous with ornate colors and delicate designs, take their name from Louis Comfort Tiffany, the artist and designer whose studio first introduced and popularized them in the 1890s. But Tiffany was active in several media besides stained glass, including blown glass, ceramics, metalwork, jewelry and painting. His craftsmanship and impeccable eye are on display in this unique exhibition, which features over 60 masterworks from his long career. Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, Tue-Sun 10 am-5 pm (EI)
