Fiber featured on First Friday Art Walk

SEQUIM — Fiber arts will be highlighted during the First Friday Art Walk in Sequim.

The art walk is a self-guided tour of art venues in Sequim from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. the first Friday of each month.

The 17th Annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival continues and includes the fiber arts exhibition “Interlaced Lore — Adventure, Fellowship, & Perseverance” at the Sequim Museum & Arts at 544 N. Sequim Ave.

During the art walk reception, many fiber artists and fiber arts advocates will be demonstrating their work.

Exhibit artists include Lora Armstrong, Libby Ballard, Lynn Baritelle, Holly Bliss, Renne Emiko Brock, Donna Lee Dowdney, Liisa Fagerlund, Susanne Foster, Jennifer Harris, Estelle Jackson, Lee E. Johnson, Susan Kroll, Robin Nelson, Jennifer O’Brien, Betty Oppenheimer, Pauline Schultz, Peggy St. George, Marla Varner, Chandra Wu and Jean Wyatt.

The North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival offers such activities as a museum exhibition, educational demonstrations of fiber processes, hands-on experiences for children and adults, Fiber Arts Market of local artists’ work and fiber supplies, and information about local fiber activities, groups, businesses and instructional resources.

Each art walk has a color theme; the theme this month is orange.

“Orange is warm, spicy, energizing, appetizing, sweet, zesty, and inspires optimism and active participation,” said Brock, who organizes the art walks.

“The hospitable hue of orange reminds us of cozy fires, snuggly seasonal sweaters, nesting and organizing, friendship made out of admirable interests, delightful sweets, encouraging teachers and mentors,” she added.

Other special events are:

Blue Whole Gallery, 129 W. Washington St. — “Bow Wow!” a special exhibit to support Welfare for Animals Guild (WAG) which rescues and adopts out disadvantaged dogs in the area.

Proceeds from the sale of selected art pieces will be donated to WAG.
