Here comes the judge.

We are talking about the top legal gun in San Miguel County and Telluride local Sharon Shuteran. Judge Sharon is joined by fellow vagabonds, activists David Byars and Jenny Jacobi, "professional hobo" Dan Hanley, photographer Gus Gusciora, artist John Fahnstock, landscape architect Angela Dye, artist/videographer Dean Rolley, fitness guru Nicole Lankes and travel writer Maribeth Clemente for the third in the series,Twenty(by)Telluride, presented by Telluride Arts, aka, Telluride Council for the Arts and Humanities.

Twenty(by)Telluride takes place Monday, July 25, starting at 8 p.m. at The River Club, 550 West Depot Avenue. Come a half hour early, at 7:30 p.m., for drinks and little eats compliments of the River Club. The theme of the evening's talks is JOURNEYS.

Twenty(by)Telluride is a monthly gathering designed to showcase innovation, knowledge, ideas, and creativity of Telluride community members. The get-together is based on PechaKucka Night and TED.

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), PechaKucka rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.

Why an event like Twenty(By)Telluride?  In most cities and towns, Telluride included, public spaces where people can show and share their work in relaxed manner are few and far between. If you have just graduated from college and finished your first project in the real world, where can you show it? If you a working artist with a growing body of work but no gallery, how do you find an audience? If you have just had a lightbulb moment, who do you share it with to make it real and practical?

Locally, Twenty(by)Telluride becomes the perfect platform to show and share the ideas and work of the cross sections of artists, writers, filmmakers, architects and more who make their homes in and around our box canyon resort.

Twenty(by)Telluride is FREE and open to the general public.
