Emerge 2nd Annual INK! Print Rally @ Emerge
Sep 8 @ 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

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.

Tribe by Sebastian Junger Book Club @ Human Rights Educational Institute
Sep 19 @ 5:15 pm

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.

Historic Pipe Organ Dedication Recital @ Community United Methodist Church
Nov 11 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Community United Methodist Church invites the community to attend dedication events celebrating the installation of the renovated historic pipe organ. The organ will be officially dedicated and heard for the first time during the 9:00 a.m. Traditional Worship Service. A Dedication Pipe Organ Recital, open to the public will be at 2pm. The church is fully handicapped assessible. Off-street parking is available

Performers at the 9am worship service will include Cynthia Marlette and Mark Haberman, organists for the church. Long time community organist, Byrl Cinnamon, will join Marlette and Haberman for the afternoon Dedicatory Recital. Additionally, for the recital, two commissioned works will be featured, including an anthem that will be performed by the church’s Chancel Choir under the direction of Bill Jaquette. Sheila Schindler, soprano saxophonist, will join Marlette on one composition for organ and saxophone. There is no admission fee.

The historic organ was installed in the congregation’s previous building, located at 7th and Wallace, in 1908 and included 640 individual pipes. It was rebuilt and enlarged to 1,267 pipes in 1978. When the congregation built the new facility in 1994, the organ was reinstalled in that setting. The 2018 renovation, by Marceau & Associates of Seattle, Washington, afforded an opportunity to further enhance the instrument’s bold, extraordinary sound by increasing its size to 1,581 pipes.
