Fiber, paintings, music, theatre on First Friday Art Walk

SEQUIM — The opening reception of “Bumblebunching – Warped, Twisted, & Imperfect” of the 16th Annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival is among the special events planned during the First Friday Art Walk in Sequim this week.

The reception of the fiber arts exhibition, which runs from Friday to Nov. 27, is at the Sequim Museum & Arts at 544 N Sequim Avenue.

The color theme for Friday’s art walk is orange.

“Orange is one of the brighter colors in fall as summer fades away,” said Renne Emiko Brock, art walk organizer.

”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. “

Participants are encouraged to dress in shades of orange or spicy fall colors, she said.

First Friday Art Walk Sequim is a free self-guided tour of art venues on the First Friday of every month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Health safety guidelines of masks, social distancing and limited capacity are followed.

In addition to the fiber arts show, other special events on Friday are:

• Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County’s Sequim Habitat Boutique Store, 213 E Washington St., will from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., feature a “Sooner or Ladder Art Auction” to support their mission of affordable housing.

• A Stitch in Time Quilt Shoppe, 225 E. Washington St., will display local quilters’ work that corresponds with the monthly color theme. Any who have quilts they made that coincide with the color designated for the art walk is urged to drop them off at the shop the day of the walk with a label and information attached to the quilt.
