Love art? Come to Pybus

Prepare for a sensory overload at Pybus Public Market this weekend. Outside, the grills will be hot and the sauce will be flowing as competitors participate in the first-ever Eastern Washington BBQ Championship (see Check it Out on page C1). After you’ve sampled the brisket, head inside the market, where local artists will be talking about their art and making it, too. It’s the fourth Art Lovers’ Sunday event, happening this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

First Friday arts: Exhibits and events through May

Wenatchee’s Arts Walk begins its fifth season this month. Celebrate the occasion by coming out tomorrow night to support local art and the people who make it. From Arts Walk organizers: “The idea is a simple one. By joining many individual venues into an organized art walk, the collective effort magnifies our community’s interest and cultural awareness in the arts. The hope is to move people around town into different venues that offer different art experiences.” Here are the highlights.

Register now for summer drama camp

TWISP – The Merc Playhouse will host two drama camps for children ages 8 and up this summer. Megan Fox Hicks will direct the week-long camps, which run July 6-10 and Aug. 17-21.

Life of an actor: NYC vs. NCW

The Big Apple. The Jungle. The Zoo. Whatever names it’s acquired over the years, we all know it as New York City. It’s beautiful in its way with its tall forest of skyscrapers, the constant blur of motion and the never-ending sounds of the sirens, horns, people and all the incidental noise that makes up city life.

The Wicks: On fire and back home for one night at Mela

The Wicks are coming home, at least temporarily. Husband-and-wife duo Jedidiah and Pauline Wick formed The Wicks in 2011, while they were living in Cashmere. Last year, they moved to the Fort Worth area, picked up a third member in vocalist and lead guitarist John Charles Ledbetter and continued to tour and win fans with their foot-stomping soul-folk music. Now they’re back, touring Washington and playing before a hometown crowd Friday night at Caffè Mela.
