SEPTEMBER 26: Pecha Kucha
You can learn a lot about art in six minutes forty seconds. Twenty slides worth, in fact, say organizers of a new event coming to Chewelah this September. Pecha Kucha started in Japan as a way for designers to share their work with others. The Chewelah Arts Guild is adopting this speedy presentation format, so that viewers can get a taste of local artists’ work. Our 2017 Pecha Kucha included Ellen Breiter (pastels), Chris Lehwalder (painting), Tim Nielsen (jewelry), Margo Sety (watercolors) and Light Up the Park (a community art event). Each artist or group shared 20 slides about their art or event in less than seven minutes. Sponsored by Chewelah Arts Guild and the Independent, Bud Evans inspired this presentation after having attended a Pecha Kucha event at a dental convention. Evans searched around and found the closest Pecha Kucha event in Ellensburg, Washington. He wanted to bring the concept to Chewelah. The fast pace allows for interest to build around art while providing exposure to many different artists in one evening. Pecha Kucha is a free event and will be held at the Quartzite Brewing Co. on September 26, 2018.
