To those of you who may have been anxiously waiting for the next Arts In The Valley and Beyond blog, sorry for the delay. But, after the very long and busy Apple Blossom weekend of Art in and out of the PAC, the First Friday art Event, The Giant Puppet march in the Grand Parade on Saturday, followed by moving Scott Allen’s Art out of the Robert graves Gallery at Wenatchee Valley College and then installing the Cashmere High School art students and the Vale Elementary students posters at the Cashmere Arts and Activities Center on Sunday… frankly I needed a break from the art and the blogging about art and needed to catch up on a lot of work and home projects…whew!!! That being said, I did get some video work done using the mass amounts of video I took Saturday both before and during the Grand Parade as I marched the whole length with the Giant Puppets both as support fix-it guy and as videographer. So far I have produced three videos of the giant puppets one encapsulates the whole parade from the preparation and staging to the end of the parade where we got in under a roof just as the clouds burst forth…lucky!!! The other two use different clips of the staging area and of the puppets dancing to Salvadorian music… what fun. You can find all of these videos and a short clip of the Rambots group with their robot at the staging area by going to I hope as many of you as can go there and enjoy all of these videos. I may make another movie using the mass still that I took as well of the other floats and bands at the staging area… I keep you posted on that. For now it’s off to Café Mela for an early morning meeting of the Wenatchee First Fridays Group
