Campbell House Originals
March 18-November 12, 2023
Take a tour of Spokane’s historic 1898 Campbell House and you will certainly hear someone ask, “is that original?” While Campbell House appears to be a pristine turn-of-the 20th Century residence, it hides another fascinating history. Since 1925, the house has been a public museum - almost four times longer than Spokane’s wealthy Campbell family called the mansion home!
Clues from the hunt for original furnishings and the ongoing restoration of its 1898-1924 residential character will lead you through this mini-exhibition that tells the other history of Campbell House’s ninety-eight years as a museum.

Marks of Time: Andrew Parker
September 1-October 8, 2023
Artist reception September 21, 5-8 pm
Andrew (Stulz) Parker (b. 1991) works in Spokane, Washington. He studied photography and architecture at Montana State University, receiving a B.A. in Environmental Design from Montana State University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Houston.
Since starting lessons at six, art has been an integral part of Parker’s life. Studying architecture and photography shifted his creative endeavors away from painting and provided differing lenses through which to understand experiences and surroundings.
Architecture and the tools of design, such as grids and rulers, play a significant role in the development of Parker’s artwork. While bodies of work revolve around differing concepts, the core of each piece builds upon a ½ inch grid and corresponding paper circle collage. This system of organization becomes a unit of measure and relates to the many moments in time that gradually combine to create a full life.
Andrew Parker, When All is Quiet, mixed media, India ink, paper collage, acrylic, paint pen, and pastel, 30x40 in.
