These days, we're all adapting to COVID-19 realities, artists and arts entities included. Two stories of change and adaptation are featured on this week's NWAR: A tale of a unique way of keeping visual art alive in the Spokane area that seems to be morphing into a new tradition called Art on the Go, and the story of a philosophical approach to the cancellation of a popular music festival that springs from a musical metaphor--the Grand Pause. Jim Tevenan hosts; Spokane artists Denny Carman and Morgan Walters are guests, as well as Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival Artistic Director, Timothy Christie.

After more than 25 years of teaching music, theater and English in San Francisco schools, Jim relocated to Spokane in 1995 to become organist/music director for St. Augustine Parish on the South Hill. Since around 2004, with the help and patience of Verne Windham, he has been able to realize his long-standing dream of doing radio. Jim specializes in classical music, but also can do the occasional jazz show. Jim and his wife, Carol, fill their free time caring for llamas, rabbits and chickens after having watched their two children grow up and leave the nest.
