PREVIEW NIGHT | October 4th, 2018
Terrain 11 | October 5th, 2018

Jensen Byrd, 131 E. Main Ave.

Last year we opened our artist reception to the public. It was awesome. 

Last year, responding to artists and art lovers alike who wanted a more intimate night to view art, meet artists, and buy original works, we invited the public to our exclusive artist's reception for the first time.  

Terrain-ophiles like you responded like crazy:

  • Over 1,000 people got tickets.

  • We completely sold out, and way faster than we expected.

  • The night was magical as heck, fueled by people like you.

We expect this year to sell out even faster, so we're starting to sell tickets earlier:

Still on the fence? Here's a little detail about this year's event:
With over 250 artists, poets, filmmakers, musicians and other artists exhibiting and performing over 500 works across all media, this is already the biggest Terrain ever, with

  • Tons of new emerging artists making their first appearance

  • Lots of familiar favorites returning with stunning new work

Preview night is amazing because there's:

  • No line

  • Fewer people

  • More opportunity to buy art

  • More time to meet and talk with artists

Want to see the behind the scenes workings of Spokane's largest art exhibit, meet new people and help to build Spokane's artist community? You are in the right place! Help us put on Terrain 2018 by volunteering!


Always on the first Friday in October, Terrain is an annual, one-night-only, juried multimedia art and music event celebrating young and emerging artists in the Spokane area. Featuring new works by hundreds of artists, and attracting thousands of attendees, it is a celebration of new energy and fresh ideas from all over the artistic spectrum. From painting to poetry to interactive art and film, we try to showcase a little of everything that’s happening to make the Inland Empire a more vibrant, cultural and beautiful place.

Of all the things we do, our original and flagship event, Terrain, has become a seminal focal point in the life, work and careers of nearly 700 local artists. In 2016 alone we showcased 207 artists to an audience of 8,500. The need and appetite for the work we do is immense, and growing.

Terrain has created more than just an enduring annual arts exhibit and music showcase. They’ve helped to build community. Local artists view Terrain as a launchpad to make a name for themselves and to make a living in the growing creative economy of the Inland Northwest.
