A Libey Gallery exhibit curated to celebrate Colfax’s 150th anniversary pairs historical photos with related ones by area photographer Tom Mohr.

The exhibit, created in cooperation with the Colfax Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, features photographs from the Whitman Heritage digital collection, archived by the Whitman County Library, according to a library news release. It runs through the end of this month.

Mohr’s photo art combines multiple digital exposures to create one long, continuous image, according to the news release, evoking a link between photographs and motion pictures.

Photo exhibits by resident gallery artists Ken Carper, Dan Codd and Sharon Lindsay are on display as well.

Carper celebrates the agricultural heritage of Whitman County through his photos, and Codd highlights local Palouse flavor in his, according to the news release.

Lindsay features a recent ride with John Wayne Pioneer Wagons and Riders on the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail in her exhibit.

The gallery, located in The Bettie Steiger Center adjacent to the Colfax Library, is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays. Both the gallery and library will have special hours, from noon to 5 p.m., during the Colfax 150 Celebration on July 23. More information is at whitcolib.org.
