Across the universe

Kay Kenyon’s quartet of novels “The Entire and the Rose” deals with two parallel universes, each struggling to survive at the expense of the other, and the people who travel between them. Kind of like publishing. After 10 novels in the science fiction genre, on the eve of the Jan. 26 publication of her new book “Prince of Storms,” Kenyon is planning her jump into another fictional field: fantasy.

Art graces downtown Wenatchee’s avenues

Wander the streets of Wenatchee, and you’re likely to meet up with a howling coyote, a wise old turtle, dancing rabbits or lounging bears. Art on the Avenues places sculptures and other art pieces on public display for viewing, touching and admiring.

Apples everywhere

An unstoppable urge to create

This says a lot about the passion Martha Flores has for making art: Not even Catholic nuns at her elementary school could squelch her desire to create. And they tried. Flores, 63, remembers the nuns at her El Salvadoran school giving her grief for drawing in class when she should have been doing what the nuns considered to be more productive work, like embroidering or sewing.

Wenatchee artist John Crew still has ‘something to say’

When sculptor and poet John Crew met me at his Wenatchee home for an interview, he was sporting a tie-dyed T-shirt. Along with his distinguished-looking white beard, I imagined he was an aging hippie who had done well in life, but John quickly clarified that point. “I graduated from high school in Chelan in 1958,” he said. “I’ll be 71 this year. I remember back in the ’60s someone yelling at me and calling me a hippie. I didn’t even know what a hippie was; I thought they were telling ...
