Eight artists with roots in the Pacific Northwest are profiled in arTTalks, a series of half-hour documentaries.  Arne Zaslove, noted director/producer and teacher, conducts in-depth interviews with artists in different disciplines, but common themes emerge: the importance of education, the power of artistic effort, its impact on the artists themselves as well as their audiences, and inspiration from the arts and artists.
