SEQUIM — Live music on fiddles, guitar and spoons — alongside new visual art and refreshments — will fill the space in another free Art in the Library party at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., this Friday night.

The Young Fiddlers, featuring Kate Powers, a 14-year-old member of the Port Angeles Symphony, along with her spoons-playing sister, Phebe Powers, 12, will start the music at around 6 p.m. and keep on until 7:30 p.m.

The band also includes Kate and Phebe's brothers, Ethan, 17, on guitar and Philip, 10, on fiddle.

Kristina Tormala plays the bass while her sons, Alex, 10, and David, 8, add two more fiddles.

Chris Burt and Don Betts, both guitarists, will fill out the band this Friday, as bodhran player Bill Woods is off sailing for the summer.

While the Young Fiddlers play, visitors can enjoy snacks and meet artist Pam Dick, whose fractal images are on display at the library as part of Sequim's First Friday Art Walk.

Many other venues around downtown will stay open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with art shows and hors d'oeuvres, all with free admission.

Dick, a digital artist for a decade now, discovered a new form when a friend gave her a calendar that had a year in fractals.

“I was hooked after February,” she recalled. Dick was daunted, though, when she looked into making fractal art of her own.

“When I saw the complicated program, I figured I was too old to be revisiting my math education, but I pushed on,” she said.

Fractal generation was a respite from her labor-intensive digital art creation, and soon it became her main focus.

Nine years later, she's as into fractals as ever.

“I never know where I will go when I sit down to create a new image,” she said.

Dick's fractal images will remain up at the Sequim Library through August.
