Artists took to the outdoors this week during the annual Palouse Plein Air painting competition.
The competition is open to artists 18 and older, who must paint on-site during a one-week time frame anywhere in Latah, Nez Perce, Whitman and Benewah counties. Entries will be returned to the gallery Sept. 16, and a jury will determine the winners.
A reception and awards ceremony is from 5-7 p.m. Friday at the Moscow Contemporary art gallery, 414 S. Main St., Moscow. The exhibition will be on display through Oct. 17.
