From the Studio: Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC)

Wes Jessup, Executive Director of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) shares highlights of the new fall exhibitions including the headliner, Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection, which opens to the general public on Sunday, October 3. Wes says it is the best private collection of work by the most innovative artist of the 19th century and includes everyday objects -- furniture, vases, lamps -- transformed into works of art through bold colors, beautiful designs and forms. The exhibition continues through February 13, 2022.

Other fall exhibitions Wes talks about are Continuous Lines: Selections from the Joe Fedderson Collection (Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation), which continues through early February 2022, and Awakenings: Traditional Canoes and Calling the Salmon Home (United Tribes of the Upper Columbia), which continues through August 21, 2022.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
