SEQUIM — Live Celtic music, a surfer’s watercolors and a woman’s joy painted on canvas: They’re all part of tonight’s free First Friday Art Walk.
The self-guided walk around downtown Sequim also features refreshments and conversation with the artists at many of the venues, all of which will stay open for the walk from
5 p.m. till 8 p.m.
And as it does every first Friday of the month, the event has a color theme: blue. Art walkers are encouraged to dress or accessorize in shades of that hue.
For a map of the participating venues, see the Sequim First Friday Art Walk page on Facebook or visit www.SequimArtWalk.com. To find out about becoming a stop on the walk, phone coordinator Renne Brock-Richmond at 360-460-3023.
Here’s a cross-section of art and artists to see tonight.
