PORT TOWNSEND — The town’s monthly Gallery Walk, a circuit of free art events, is open from 5:30 p.m. till 8 p.m. this Saturday with local artists congregating at venues downtown.

Here’s a sampling of the galleries and shops hosting receptions.

■ The Max Grover Gallery, inside the Sideshow Variety shop at 630 Water St., hosts a retrospective through Dec. 28 of batiks, oils and watercolors by the late artist and educator Kathleen Burgett.

■ The Spice and Tea Exchange, 929 Water St., highlights photography by local artist Linda Sutton including “The Jellies,” a series of black-and-white images taken in aquariums.

Sutton pushes high-speed film to its limit, and then makes large prints by hand in a darkroom.

■ Gallery Nine, 1012 Water St., presents new works by painter Ann Arscott and artisan jeweler Michael Kenney.

While Arscott’s canvases depict wild African animals, Kenney’s hand-cut stones come from his collecting trips around the West.

■ The Port Townsend Gallery, 715 Water St., hosts “The Artful Jewelers,” a showcase of creations in lampworked glass, bone, wood, sterling silver and gold by Beau and Shani Barrett, Andrea Guarino-Siemmons, Victor Judd, Mary Lynn Maloney, Caroline Littlefield, Shirley Moss, Kristin Wade, Lelah Wright and Stephanie Oliveira.

■ Simon Mace Gallery, 236 Taylor St., presents “Driven to Abstraction,” a show of abstract creations by Liana Bennett, David Ridgway and another well-known artist who, in this show, goes by Patrizio.
