Creating Enduring Art
Ryan Roth, an artist representative, talks about how undervalued art is in many of today's cities. Buildings are often built in standard ways with art as only an afterthought. They are torn down again within a few years whereas buildings that are built in artistic ways are left standing for hundreds of years.

Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9
Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures. She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful! She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week! The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen. Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us. It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde. Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials. She is also the Director, as well as an artist, of 17th Street Studios, a work space for thirteen artists near downtown Knoxville. To view more of her work visit her site http://withbearhands.com/
PKN Vientiane Vol. 4 Poster is here!
Sabaidee! We've had a summer full of rest and relaxation over here in Vientiane, so we've hit the ground running with our next PKN popping up at Timeline Cafe on Thursday, September 15 from 6pm. We've got a host of exceptional peeps presenting at this event, so we hope to see you there Vientiane! But don't get us wrong, it hasn't been all poolside cocktails and working on our tans... Over the summer Vientiane-based Lao designer Manilla Chounlamountri, has created a truly awesome poster for our upcoming Vol. 4 event. Manilla is an illustrator at heart, and while she usually draws in black and white, she didn't shy away from punchy hues for this work. We think it sums up the PechaKucha vibe perfectly: captivating, interesting, bold, and cool with just a tad of quirk thrown in! Many, many thanks to Manilla for this wonderful work. We can't wait to plaster them all over town for the community to see!
