JULY 14: X Ambassadors at the Knitting Factory Spokane
Ithaca, New York-based X Ambassadors make passionate, dark, electronic-based pop centered around the throaty, soulful vocals of Sam Harris. Formed in 2009, X Ambassadors originally featured Harris’ keyboardist brother Casey Harris, childhood friend/guitarist Noah Feldshuh, and drummer Adam Levin. 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. Another song, “Unconsolable,” also drew listeners, and the attention helped score the group a management deal and recording contract. Doors open at 7 p.m., for tickets go to sp.knittingfactory.com.

Chewelah PACA and the Chewelah Center for the Arts would like you to join us for the 2nd annual Chataqua Film Festival to be held 14 July 2018 with doors opening at 12:45. Entry is free for this event. Musical guest Craig McQuain will play between 12:45 and 1:30 p.m. Craig is from Chewelah and has become a big hit at many venues. After an introduction, a short film by guest speaker Ron Ford will be shown. Ron is a Washington native who had an extensive film career in Hollywood before moving back to the area. 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. Dave Kotlan, whose short film “Angel and the Bear” was loved by last year’s audience, will also show more of his work and discuss filmmaking. There will be a question and answer period for all guest speakers. Stop by and join us and get an insider’s view of Hollywood and film opportunities in Spokane.

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.
