From the final concert of the summer season to auditions for fall productions, it looks like summer is on its way out. Take a look, and make your picks. As always, more events can be found in the calendar.
COLFAX — An exhibit of grain elevator photos opens Sept. 1 at the Center at the Whitman County Library here.
Dennis Witmer, a photographer who lives in Spokane, visited grain bins, elevators and grain storage piles that deal with the harvest of Whitman County’s rich grain fields. He photographed more than 60 sites and nearly every elevator across Whitman County and those comprise Witmer’s exhibit, “The Grain Elevators of Whitman County.”
One of the larger facilities featured in the exhibit is the new McCoy Grain Terminal. During Witmer’s visit in mid-August, McCoy was handling approximately 400 trucks each day and loading delivery trains at night, according to a news release. The facility was accepting about 300,000 bushels of wheat each day while the outgoing trains carried about 400,000 bushels per train.
Dennis Witmer grew up on a small farm in Lancaster County, Pa. He began making photographs in 1977 and moved to Spokane in 2012.
The center will be open for the exhibit’s first day Sept. 1, but will be closed Labor Day weekend. The exhibit continues through Oct. 31, and regular hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, and 1 to 5 p.m. weekends.
The Center is at 102 S. Main St.
