BREMERTON — Pamela Dick of Sequim is one of the artists selected to show her work in the statewide CVG — aka Collective Visions Gallery — competition and show opening this weekend.
Dick’s fractal art will appear among 132 pieces — chosen from nearly 800 entered — at the gallery at 331 Pacific Ave. in downtown Bremerton.
Leilani Lewis of the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle is the event juror, soon to choose the recipients of $7,500 in cash prizes awarded in several categories. The show also has a $300 People’s Choice Award.
“Some [of the artists] are well established professionals and others are emerging talents in the world of art,” Lewis noted.
“What an incredible experience to go through all those images.”
On opening day this Saturday, the CVG Show will have its first public viewing from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. It will then be open Sundays noon to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibition stays up through Feb. 28.

Fiddle, by ear in Sequim
SEQUIM — The local chapter of the Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association will offer a free learn-to-play-by-ear session at the Sequim Library meeting room this Wednesday evening, Jan. 27.
This 90-minute class, to start at 6:30 p.m., is the first of a series.
The sessions are geared toward players ages 21 and younger who have played a melody instrument for one to two years. Everyone is welcome to listen, though, or play backup with acoustic instruments.
The Old Time Fiddlers play traditional and dance tunes, often learned by ear rather than from sheet music, on a regular basis in Clallam County.
For details, phone 360-477-9373.
