PORT TOWNSEND –– Bovine reproductions of some of history’s most famous paintings will mesh with Middle Eastern dancing and textiles during the city’s Gallery Walk on Saturday.

Graphic designer Terry Tennesen will show 24 of the world’s most famous paintings, though he has replaced many of the models with cows, based on a dinner party dare by a friend last winter.

Tennesen’s work will hang in the Clam Cannery, 111 Quincy St., and a reception will be in the first-floor gallery during Saturday evening’s Gallery Walk. His paintings will be on a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting Dove House Advocacy Services.

The circuit of galleries and shops is from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

In addition to the art, this month’s gallery walk includes mystery stories from PT Shorts in the Cotton Building, and Blues in the Clubs will have classic Americana songsmiths playing downtown.

Venues include:

■ Pippa’s Real Tea, 636 Water St.: The international Surface Design Association’s North Peninsula chapter will show its twisting of fibers, fabric and other extrapolations of textiles, woodworking and wire bending with a display during Gallery Walk.
