PORT ANGELES — Downtown's Second Weekend art festivities offer new twists this month. Here's a sampling of the free events for lovers of art and music.

■ Singer and ukulelist Roma Peters, aka Hawaii Amor, will play from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Elliott's Antique Emporium, 135 E. First St. Visitors are invited to enjoy the music of the islands while they browse.

■ Fiber artist Lauralee DeLuca, who specializes in spinning and felting exotic wools, will be on hand for a reception from 5 p.m. to
7 p.m. Saturday at the Cabled Fiber Studio, 106 N. Laurel St.

The event will include a display of DeLuca's large felted tapestry and a variety of other works from recent years, along with refreshments.

DeLuca also plans felting classes; information is available by phoning the Cabled Fiber Studio at 360-504-2233.

■ Cafe New Day, 102 W. Front St., is joining Saturday's art walk with a display of Tammy Hall's collages.

These Victorian-flavored images blend photos, paint, wax, paper cutouts, rusty things and other objects, and can be seen every day at Cafe New Day except Tuesday, when the eatery is closed.

■ The Heatherton Gallery is the newly named venue inside The Landing mall, 115 E. Railroad Ave., open for Saturday evening's art walk.

The former Landing Art Gallery is under the new ownership of artist Sky Heatherton of Port Angeles, who through February is hosting a show featuring painter David Haight and jewelry designer Diana Kohler plus 11 guest artists.

Trumpet and keyboard player Tom East and guitarist Jason Popelka will provide music during Saturday's reception from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

■ Internationally known artist and teacher Joel Mangin is mounting a show at Studio Bob, upstairs at 1181/2 E. Front St., this Saturday.

“He has a massive body of work and will fill the studio,” said owner Bob Stokes, adding that Mangin moved to the North Olympic Peninsula just a year ago.

Mangin, for his part, says he's primarily interested in people and animals, and explores themes of beauty, truth and social issues in his art.

The opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; Mangin's show will also be open to the public from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.

■ Also Sunday, The Loom lounge, adjacent to Studio Bob, will open at noon for mimosas, Bob's breakfast muffins and other beverages.
