Four Old Guys Walk Into a Gallery
The Prichard Art Gallery celebrates the work of four Palouse regional artists with the exhibit “Four Old Guys Walk Into a Gallery.”
The “Four Old Guys” are Jim Gale, Jim Loney, Scott Plummer and Peter Vincent, all local artists. This eclectic exhibit will display work in painting, photography, sculpture and visual text.
All four of the artists have long histories in the community, university and with the Prichard. Loney was the gallery director when the gallery was on the Moscow campus in the now-demolished Mines Building. Plummer retired after working at the university for more than two decades. Vincent was in the MFA program with Loney. Gale, along with his artist wife Linda Kanery, have their studio in the community ballfields and they have adorned their property and taught art camps.
Vincent is a photographer, best known for his work shooting hot rods and Bonneville Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The upcoming exhibit will also display work from his recent “Lebanon Diaries.” Loney works in prints and sculptural objects, incorporating language in the form of word play, double entendre and word/object combinations to question meaning. Gale works in ceramics and painting, often making mixed media pieces with whatever materials he finds. Plummer is a sculptor working in metal, wood and found materials, where textures, forms and substance interact to create moments of wonder.
This exhibit acknowledges the considerable contribution of four of the long-time pillars of the Moscow arts community.
