PORT ANGELES — Hand-painted furniture, special holiday sales and live music are among the attractions offered during the Second Saturday Art Walk in Port Angeles.
Here is roundup of special events on Saturday.
• Studio Bob, 118½ E. Front St., will host a reception for artist Dwayne Northup from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and be open from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday for the show, New Beginnings.
The show is an expression of Northup’s current interests: Hand-painted furniture, lamps made of reclaimed wood, acrylic paintings on reclaimed wood or hand-made canvas.
Northup grew up in Neah Bay on the Makah Reservation and was exposed to the traditional art taught by the elders.
One of his rawhide sculptures was purchased by the Makah Tribal Council to be displayed in the Makah Museum.
His first painting, an image of Buddha, sold in 58 seconds after being posted on Facebook.
That response has inspired this self-taught artist to see where the road will take him.
Also on display will be the Pacific Fleet mural created by artists Jackson Smart and Bob Stokes.
This will be the last chance to view it up close and personal before it goes into winter storage awaiting 2018 installation.
There will be a no host bar serving beer and wine in The Loom.
• Bar N9NE, 228 W. First St., will feature a double-overhead Second Friday Art Rock (2FAR) with bands Crushwater and Shark Mouth and artist Jimbo Cutler.
The party will start at 9 p.m. The $5 cover charge will help support the musicians and artist.
Crushwater has influences from rock, punk, indie, folk, Latin, and Americana. Guitarist Scott Sullivan, violinist Chandra Johnson and drummer Casey Northern create original, high-energy rock songs, organizers said, while Shark Mouth, up from Santa Rosa, Calif., plays fresh, fly, dank, dope rock.
Not only is Cutler the owner and operator of Port Angeles Tattoo, he is also an artist with acrylic paint. He has lent his talents to large mural projects, including at a local food bank and school.
• Harbor Art, E. Railroad Ave., will feature the work of 14 local artists working in photography, paintings, block prints, sculpture, wood work, ceramics, glass and jewelry.
An artist reception is set for 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
• Elliott’s Antique Emporium, 135 E. First St., will offer music by Hawaii Amor during the Second Saturday Art Walk.
Free music for the holidays will be offered from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4:50 p.m.
• Landing Artists Studio, 115 E. Railroad Ave., Suite 103, will host Art Walk from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
The public is invited and light refreshments will be served.
As part of its customer appreciation sale in December, the gallery will offer a table full of marked-down jewelry, scarves and art pieces.
In addition there are special sales throughout the studio, located on the lower floor of The Landing Mall.
Featured will be Christmas trees full of handmade ornaments for the home — or as gifts.
The studio also offers a selection of northwest and marine-inspired items, greeting cards and art.
Artists are on hand daily working on new projects and enjoy company.
The public is invited to stay and learn new techniques and be inspired while enjoying a cup of coffee or cocoa.
• One of a Kind Art Gallery, 115 E. Railroad Ave., will offer refreshments and music by Howly Slim during the Second Saturday Art Walk.
The gallery is wrapping gifts for a donation to the food bank. It plans to host Santa Claus from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 16 and Dec. 23.
