Applications are being accepted for the 37th Art Under the Elms, slated for April 21-23 on the Lewis-Clark State College campus in Lewiston.

The annual artisan fair, organized by the college’s Center for Arts & History, is set to take place one week before the Asotin County Fair, an event with which it has historically shared a weekend. This installment coincides with LCSC’s Family Weekend, which draws families and friends of current students as well as alumni to campus, according to an LCSC news release.

Those interested in participating in the artisan marketplace, book fair, emerging artist program, food court or volunteer program can find application forms at or can contact Center for Arts & History Director Emily Johnsen at or (208) 792-2447.

Art Under the Elms, LCSC’s contribution to the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley’s Dogwood Festival, includes an artisan marketplace, hands-on art activities, pop-up exhibitions, performances, film screenings, interactive art installations and food trucks. Proceeds from the event, which is free to attend, support the center’s programming of exhibitions, public programs and art education initiatives.

It is scheduled to run from noon to 7 p.m. April 21, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 22 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 23, with film screenings extending into the evening hours.
