Details of new downtown mural to be told during Second Weekend Art Walk in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — A new mural is in the works for downtown Port Angeles.

Port Angeles Arts Council members will announce details about the mural, “The Pacific Fleet,” at a fundraiser for the nonprofit group set Saturday at Studio Bob during the Second Weekend Art Walk in Port Angeles.

The pasta dinner fundraiser will start at 5 p.m. in the upstairs studio at 118½ E. Front St. Music by Ches and Gordon will begin at about 6 p.m.

A silent auction will feature local art, donations and gift certificates from Port Angeles merchants, with bidding ending at 8:30 p.m. Also to be auctioned will be dinner for four with local artists in their studios.

A no-host bar will serve drinks in The Loom next to the studio.

Admission at the door will be $15, which includes a pasta dinner with meat or veggie sauce, bread, salad, drink and dessert.

The new mural was commissioned by the estate of Pete Capos for the west side of the Station 51 Taphouse at 125 W. Front St., said Bob Stokes, who, with fellow arts council board member Jackson Smart, will create it.

The 64-foot-by-10-foot mural — a panorama of the harbor with ships of the Pacific Fleet — will be set high on the building, said Chet Golding, vice president of the arts council board, so high “you’ll be able to see it from [Waterfront Park].”

The mural will be made from an artist’s concept prepared by Stokes in his studio, Studio Bob, on 16 panels made of plastic with an aluminum surface and coated with powder to facilitate painting on them, according to Golding.

The project is expected to cost Capos’ estate $19,920, including artwork and installation, Golding said.

The artwork itself will be completed this summer, Stokes said, but installation might not be until early fall.

One of the reasons the Port Angeles Arts Council was set up was to enable artists to fund projects through a nonprofit, according to Golding and Stokes.

Other projects in the works will be discussed Saturday night, Golding said.

Among them will be plans to restore two murals in Port Angeles: “The Norman” on the side of the Barhop Brewing and Artisan Pizza at 124 W. Railroad Ave., and “Steam Donkey” on Second and South Peabody streets.

Proceeds from Saturday’s dinner will support the Port Angeles Arts Council, which works to support all arts in the Port Angeles area.

The monthly self-guided Second Weekend Art Walk was founded about 11 years ago by the Port Angeles Arts Council as a coalition of downtown Port Angeles businesses and art galleries to bring attention to the culture and variety offered there, organizers said.

Art event signs are up at participating hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, restaurants and galleries. Visitors also can take strolls through the collection of outdoor sculptures around Port Angeles’ downtown and waterfront called “Art on the Town.”

Also planned this weekend:

Landing Artists Studio in The Landing mall at 115 E. Railroad Ave. is featuring the fractals of Pamela Dick during the month of June.

The gallery will be open from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Light refreshments will be served.

Dick began her digital art career 10 years ago with 3-D renderings of fantasy characters. Fractal generation was a respite from the labor-intensive digital art creation. Something about the fractals soon took over and fractals became her main focus.

She specializes in unique shapes. Fractals is a new branch of art and math that demonstrates that equations are more than just a collection of numbers, Dick said.

“They are mathematical descriptions of many natural forms, such as ferns, clouds, cells and crystals. This contemporary digital art form changes formulas and alters triangles to produce amazing and unusual images.”

Dick lives in Sequim with her husband, two Labs and four cats.

Heatherton Gallery at The Landing mall, 115 E. Railroad Ave., is featuring artists Gary Rainwater, Valle Nevaril and Hideko Goecker for the months of June and July.

A reception for the artists is planned from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. today.

Bar N9ne, 229 W. First St., will host the 2nd Friday Art Rock to “bring people together,” said Dan Lieberman, 2nd Friday Art Rock spokesman.

At 9 p.m. will be “a howl-at-the-moon 2FAR jam” featuring Chesnut Junction and artists Lynne Roberson and Jeff Tocher, Lieberman said.

A $3 cover charge will help support the musicians and artists.

“At 2FAR this month is a rare and very welcome performance for Chesnut Junction, which features Ches Ferguson on guitar, Paul Eyestone on bass, Zubrie Kamau on percussion, Kevin Briggs on guitar and Ron Daylo on flute/harmonica/trombone,” he said.

Formed in 2013 and playing when their various players occupy the same place in time and space, they cover 1960s and ’70s songs with some originals mixed in.

Roberson, a local artist, will team up with Tocher to paint to the music at 2FAR.

“Fresh off their solid performance-painting shows at the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts, where they created an amazing raven and school of sea horses, Lynne and Jeff will be ready to make more magic,” Lieberman said.

“Throw in the full moon, and things will definitely get creative and colorful.”

Harbor Art, 110 E. Railroad Ave., will host an artists’ reception from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

Harbor Art features the original work of 14 local artists, which includes photography, paintings, block prints, sculpture, woodwork, ceramics, glass, felting and jewelry.

Annie Sumpton will be at Imagine It Framed tonight for a reception opening her show.
