In addition to tasty tidbits from ten local eateries, an exciting array of talent will be enjoyed by those who attend the Chewelah Arts Guild’s Taste of Chewelah, Thursday, June 16, 4:30-8 p.m.
Street musicians will have “Tasters” tapping their toes to a variety of musical styles up and down Main Street and on Park Street near El Ranchito and Flowery Trail Coffeehouse.
The musical line-up so far includes Skylar Colvin, electronic violin; Hannah Jones, guitar, ukulele and vocals; Macy Morgan, guitar; Craig McQuain, guitar; David Johnstone, piano and vocals, and David DeVeau, western guitar. Tip jars will be out for those who want to show their appreciation to these entertaining musicians.
As attendees walk the town to sample Chewelah cuisine, they also will encounter displays at each stop showing the impressive works of a number of local artists.
Exhibits are as follows: Margo Sety at Flowery Trail Coffeehouse; Thelma Thon-Sevey McDarment (new works) at El Ranchito Family Restaurant; three paintings from Tom and Susan Bristol’s collection at The Bread Box; Orla Feay Colvin at Main Street Bistro; David McMillan at Sportsman Bar & Grill; Avorie Corbett at Paul’s Coffee Shop; Gail Johannes (new works) at ChewVino, and Denelle Fantasia at Mondo’s Restaurant.
In keeping with this year’s departure from only soup, eateries will serve such palate pleasers as pizza rolls, meatball marinara sliders, Caprese salad, and street tacos.
The evening will conclude at Quartzite Brewing Company with desserts, drinks, and a silent auction, which is CAG’s major fundraiser each year.
Auction items of particular interest include seven framed Keith Powell prints, an Ellen Breiter pastel painting, a pendant by local artisan Tim Neilsen, a watercolor by Elizabeth MacDonald, and a charming rock sculpture by Kay Comer-Lupton.
Tickets for the event are now on sale at ChewVino, Valley Drug, Akers United Drug, Flowery Trail Coffeehouse and online at ChewelahArtsGuild.org. Cost is $12; kids eight and under are free.
