Olympic Peninsula Art Association show coming up

SEQUIM — The Olympic Peninsula Art Association will host a reception for its four-day Member’s Show and Silent Auction Fundraiser on Wednesday.

The exhibit will be on view from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at St. Luke’s Episcopal Parish Hall, 525 N. Fifth Ave.

An artist reception is set from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The show is open to the public, and admission is free.

Many of the art pieces will be for sale, with a portion of the sales going to help fund association projects.

Along with the art show, the group will offer its annual silent auction fundraiser.

Among the items up for bid will be round-trip tickets to Victoria; rounds of golf at local courses; meals at local restaurants such as Chestnut Cottage, Alderwood Bistro, Old Mill Cafe and Oak Table Cafe; and trips to the Royal B.C. Museum, Greater Victoria Art Museum and Olympic Game Farm.

Other donors include Rocket Transport, Clear Image Custom Framing, Les Schwab and B&B Family Lavender Farm.

Each year, the association provides programs and demonstrations, offers financial assistance to local area schools for art programs and puts on a members exhibit.

It also awards scholarships each year to graduating seniors who are interested in pursuing art as a career.
