Music as motivation. That’s what the annual Mariachi Northwest Festival, happening this weekend in Wenatchee, is all about: using traditional Mexican music and dance to motivate students to go to college. It is a celebration of the connection between music and academic achievement, and this year, the event will be bigger than ever, according to festival organizers.
Think of Main Street Gallery as your new one-stop art resource. Now you can buy your paint brushes and sketch pads in the same place you have come for years for artistic inspiration. In a partnership with Edmonds art store ARTspot, the downtown Chelan gallery has started selling drawing and painting supplies.
