October First Friday brings dinos, fiber arts and more to the valley

With summer officially done and over with, October brings a new collection of art and artists for First Friday. The evening, put together by Wenatchee First Fridays, runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, and features multiple venues, including galleries, storefronts, cafes and others. A few locations have slightly modified times. Here’s the list of venues:

Wool Work For Wine’ event unites sheep, artists and wine

The sound of animals serves as a backdrop to all events at Snowgrass Winery in Entiat. Ducks fluttering and quacking in the pond, curious goats sticking their noses through the fence, the quiet murmur of hens roaming the backyard and, of course, the sheep.

The last First Friday of summer

August arts: A First Friday preview

This Friday, eight different art venues will participate in a self-guided tour put on by Wenatchee First Fridays. The goal of the tour, held each month, is to introduce community members to new art and new venues in the valley. It’s also an opportunity to meet people who share your interest in the arts and support local businesses. Participation is free, and many of the venues fall along a central downtown walking route.

Short Shakes’ 38th year brings new script, new partnership

For Short Shakespeareans, a local youth theater program, their 38th year is one filled with firsts. Branching out from their normal rotation of Shakespeare plays, Director Kelly Atwood made the decision this year to put on “Much Ado About Nothing.” The comedy, written by Shakespeare in the middle of his career, has never been done before by Short Shakes. It opens tonight at the Riverside Playhouse.

LEAPing again

The Local Enterprising Artists’ Project is returning to Wenatchee for a third year.

Painting with friends: Wenatchee Watercolor Society exhibit opens Friday

WENATCHEE — Watercolor painting sometimes gets a bad rap. It has a reputation as a soft art form. Gentle. Non-threatening. The paintings are vulnerable to direct sunlight. Watercolor is, as described by an art critic for The Guardian, "primroses and birds' nests, hop farms and watermills, miles of dappled trees beneath mildly overcast skies."

Spring is in the air and art is all around. The First Friday Art Walk is tomorrow evening and fresh artwork is blossoming at galleries, shops and cafes around town. Come check it out.
