Emerge’s INK! Print Rally Coming in September
Steamroller Art, Live Music and More at Second Annual Event
Local community arts organization Emerge is hosting its Second Annual INK! Print Rally in the parking lot of its downtown Coeur d’Alene gallery on Saturday, September 8th, from 3 to 9 pm. This unique event features a steamroller and hand-carved wood panels to create one-of-a-kind prints on large pieces of fabric. Each panel is hand-carved and inked by a local artist, then rolled and revealed at the event for all to see.
“INK! truly is a one-of-a-kind event for the community,” says Emerge Executive Director Jeni Hegsted. “This year, we’ve partnered with some of our higher education institutes, like Lewis-Clark State College and the University of Idaho, to make this an educational experience as well as an entertaining one. Emerging print artists get to work right alongside more experienced artists to create art right before everyone’s eyes on a huge scale.”
Event participants include six regional colleges and universities, local businesses, and community-based organizations. There will also be interactive printmaking booths with activities for all ages, local artisans and makers, food trucks, and a beer garden. All of this is set to live music from local bands Hobo Hangout, the Bitch Fits, and the Newman Band. Attendance is free and open to the public.
This year’s theme is “Resilience”: how individuals, communities, and environments adjust to challenging events, adversity, and natural processes. The showcased prints will reflect processes of adaptation and how resilient knowledge can be used to support well-being.
“The theme coincides with the process of steamrolling panels of carved wood,” says Hegsted. “We put a huge amount of weight and physical stress upon the fabric, ink, and wood to create a piece of art that speaks of the artist, and hopefully speaks to the viewer.”
It is the mission of Emerge to provide free and affordable arts education to youth and adults in our community. The funds raised during the INK! Print Rally will be used to maintain printmaking equipment for the Emerge classroom, offer scholarships, and provide the needed resources to underwrite diverse art education for our community. All event proceeds benefit the Emerge community arts program.

The ALS Association’s premier event, our Walk to Defeat ALS® is an outlet for communities across the nation to demonstrate their concern for and the urgent need to find the cure for ALS while providing the best care for those who are currently battling the disease.
What began more than 15 years ago as a grassroots effort to increase awareness has now turned into a National Signature Event that the entire ALS community rallies behind, growing the number of teams and participants each year.
Whether reinvigorated by the Ice Bucket Challenge 2014 or new and concerned about our cause, over 150,000 ALS supporters nationwide participated in local Walks this year. It was incredible to feel your support, as Walks across the country broke fundraising and attendance records, and enthusiasm was off the charts!

Junger combines history, psychology, and anthropology as he explores what tribal societies can teach us about loyalty, belonging, and humanity’s eternal quest to find meaning. He explains the irony that war feels better than peace, that adversity can turn into a blessing, and that disasters are more often more fondly remembered than the good moments in life. Tribe explains why humans are stronger when we come together and how we can achieve that in our presently divided world.
