PREVIEW NIGHT | October 5th

Best of
Terrains Past & SPokane's Future

Ever wish you could have a more intimate Terrain experience? Lots of people have asked for one, so we're doing it!

For the first time, the night before Terrain, we're opening our doors to a limited number of people who want to: 

  • Skip the line
  • Beat the crowds
  • Meet the artists
  • Buy art before your friends get to
  • Relive favorite bands from Terrain's past
  • Get a peak at Spokane's future. 

Sound amazing? Why don't you:

Need a little more convincing? Okay. More on the music:

People lost their minds for Sallie Ford at Terrain 2009 and Manatee Commune at Bazaar 1. For our first-ever preview night, we invited them back and teamed them with Jango — an incredible performer hustling just as hard to grow our hip-hop community as write rhymes — and the living legend Marshall McClean performing a first-ever unplugged set.

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.
