Initially calling themselves Ambassadors, they released a self-titled EP in 2009. To the bandmembers’ surprise, their song “Litoist” garnered online buzz and was eventually put into rotation on Virginia’s 96X radio station.

He is an actor, writer, and filmmaker, active in the Spokane theater scene. In 1994, after moving to LA, he sold his first screenplay which became the horror hit, The Fear. He became a filmmaker in 1997 with his directorial debut, Alien Force, starring Burt Ward of Batman fame. He became a gun for hire for film distributors, who could be relied on to deliver salable movies on budget and on time, producing a couple dozen genre titles, including Hollywood Mortuary, Mark of Dracula and Witchcraft XI: Sisters in Blood. In 2003 he moved to Spokane with his then-wife for family reasons and has remained here, even after the marriage failed. As an actor, he can be seen in the movies Home of the Brave, Killer Tomatoes Eat France, and many others, as well as on the TV shows Z Nation, The Young Riders and Hey, Dude. After Ron speaks to the guests we will show another of his short films. Ron states that it is one of his best. Rebecca Cook will be back this year to discuss SWIFT: Spokane Women Film & Television. SWIFT is a mentoring project utilizing only women, both in front of and behind the camera. Rebecca has worked on numerous films in the Spokane area and is currently working on the SYFY hit Z Nation.

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.

SEPTEMBER 2018

DECEMBER 2018
The Chewelah Arts Guild presented its second Winter concert of Christmas and seasonal music Sunday, December 3, 2017 at the Abundant Life Fellowship Church in Chewelah.  The 2:00 p.m. celebration of spiritual music featured Chorale Coeur d’Alene and Cresendo Community Chorus, an outstanding youth choir, plus the Mansfield-Colvin Family Bankd.  The 2017 concert was amazing and a wonderful start to the holiday season.
