March 21, 2018
You can learn a lot about art in six minutes forty seconds. Twenty slides worth, in fact, say organizers of a new event first introduced to Chewelah last 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).
It was very well attended and enjoyed by all.
Each artist or group shared 20 slides about their art or event in less than seven minutes. The fast pace allows for interest to build around art while providing exposure to many different artists in one evening. Our next Pecha Kucha event will be March 21, 2018 at Quartzite Brewery. Artists and details will be publicized soon.
