PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles arts and entertainment venues will host featured and performing artists for Second Saturday Art Walk this weekend.
Among those featured will be “professional artists, student, first-timers and nervous-never-shown- befores,” at Studio Bob, said Bob Stokes, owner of the studio upstairs at 118½ E. Front St.
The studio will host the 21st annual Bring Your Own Art show on Saturday, with artists’ receptions from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday. A no-host bar and refreshments will be available in the neighboring Loom.
“This popular all-ages show is a great chance to show something you or a family member has done,” Stokes said in a news release.
Art for the show can still be dropped off at the studio today, between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The cost is $5 per piece (maximum of three), with no commission if you choose to sell your art.
Art should have tags that have the name of the artist, title, contact information and price (optional), and a bit about the art and artist.
Also this weekend:
• Bar N9NE, 229 W. First St., will kick off the monthly arts weekend with its 2nd Friday Art Rock, known as “2FAR,” at 9 tonight.
A $3 cover charge will support the musicians and artist.
Local artist Jeff Tocher will paint improvised moments in time inspired by music and life.
Performing will be a brand-new band, Kahyoti.
Musicians Mike Pace (guitar/vocals), Mark Schecter (keyboards/vocals), Jim Charlier (bass/vocals) and Terry Smith (drums) hope to get attendees up and dancing.
Their repertoire is mostly funk and blues, but they also add in some Latin, jazz, reggae and rock.
• Harbor Art Gallery, 114. N. Laurel St., will feature artists of the month Roger Mosley and Chris Thompson.
The two will be on hand to talk with visitors from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
“I’ve enjoyed photography for many years,” Mosley said. “I have this voice inside me like all artists do that gives direction for my work, which is natural and rural landscape photography.”
Mosley had a career with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, spending many hours in the back country crawling up and down the rivers and streams of the state’s North Coast counting spawning salmon and steelhead.
“In my photography, I’m inspired to capture those scenes and moments that collectively, give this landscape its beauty,” he added.
Mosley lives on a 5-acre “stump ranch” in Joyce with his wife, Linda.
Thompson, an artist who recently moved to the Peninsula from northern Michigan, is committed to fine woodworking.
He collects both antique woodworking tools and rare and exotic woods. This is reflected in the range of functional and sculptural pieces he creates, from beautifully grained boxes and book stands to whimsical birdhouses.
Thompson said his main method of working with wood is using antique tools such as hand jointers, jack planes, scrapers and other quality tools. He said he is completely self-taught.
• One of a Kind Art Gallery, in The Landing mall at 115 Railroad Ave., will participate in Second Saturday.
