ARTfusion celebrates 10 years

SEQUIM — ARTfusion returns for its 10th annual art show and sale from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Sunday at the Cutting Garden Art Center, 303 Dahlia Llama Lane.

The free event features six different local artists working in a variety of mediums.

The show and sale gives returning art fans and visitors new works of art to browse or purchase.

This year’s artists include Catherine Mix, Tutti Peetz, Paulette Hill, Jinx Bryant and Whidbey Island guest artists Dan and Joi LaChaussee.

The artists plan to give live demonstrations and talks throughout the weekend and light refreshments will be provided.

This year’s guest artists, the LaChaussees, are a glass-blowing team and family working from their studio on Whidbey Island. The pair, celebrating two decades of work, offers a collection of glass-blown pieces from bowls to platters to sculptures.

Peetz will showcase her wood sculptures with a focus on mixing multiple pieces and types of wood together. She also has been trying new inlay techniques and is working toward some Native American patterns.

Peetz said she is donating 50 percent of her proceeds from the event this year to the new building fund at the Dungeness River Audubon Center.

Hill will have a large display of her jewelry designed with stones, fine metal wire work, and a new element to her style this year, incorporating different types of bead work. One of Hill’s necklace sets also is on display in the Sequim Civic Center through September.

Bryant will offer her selection of paintings in watercolor, pastel and acrylics — a new medium she’s trying this year. She said acrylics have allowed her to expand her form and create bolder and more saturated colors as well as paint on a larger scale.

Mix will have 15 new landscapes and floral paintings in pastel, watercolor and oil at this year’s event. She also offers a vast selection of high-quality giclee prints both framed and unframed in a range of sizes and prices. Oil painting is a new medium for Mix this year.
