This week's TA(P) covers a wildfire art exhibition, vocal jazz and aerial arts
This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — includes the following:
- A studio interview with Paul Manoguerra, the director and curator of the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University. A new traveling exhibition—and the Jundt's first since COVID—titled "Facing Fire: Art, Wildfire, and the End of Nature in the New West" opened there this week. It runs until May 13.
- A reprise of Rachel Bade-McMurphy's interview with Grammy-nominated jazz singer Sacha Boutros that previously aired on Friday Afternoon Jazz. Boutros' entertainment company Hear Me Roar is helping to relaunch the daily live jazz series at The Historic Davenport Hotel. It closes with Boutros' rendition of "I Believe in You" from her album NY After Dark.
- A studio interview with competitive adult gymnast Sherrie Martin. Her organization Spokane Aerial Performance Arts was recently awarded Spokane Arts Grant Award (SAGA) funding for their youth stilt walking program.
Intro music new to you? It's "Fire" by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
The Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
