Up next at Coeur d’Alene’s Art Spirit Gallery (which remains open under strict public health guidelines; masks are required and visitor capacity is limited) is a show paying homage to the great Western mythology. New Western Vibe is a group show featuring the work of four regional artists. Viewers can enjoy the colorful and spunky animal-themed paintings of Shelle Lindholm with a geometric, mosaic-like technique. Ceramicist James Tingey uses his chosen media to explore form and function, while painter Travis Walker “speaks to a problematic perspective of the modern West” in paintings that may appear simple at first glance, but offer much for the viewer to interpret. Finally, Chase Halland contributes trophy mount-inspired pieces covered in vintage Pendleton wool. If you can’t visit the gallery in person, the full show is also viewable online.
Through Aug. 8; open daily 11 am-6 pm • Free admission (masks required) • Art Spirit Gallery • 415 Sherman Ave. • Online at artspiritgallery.com
