Photography, gourds, woodwork paintings on exhibit during Port Townsend Gallery Walk

PORT TOWNSEND — Jim Fagiolo’s landscape photography commands traditional film techniques, detail and fidelity to express the majesty of geography.

Many familiar Northwest scenes await Port Townsend Gallery Walk participants at Gallery 9 on Saturday.

Fagiolo’s photography will be on display at 1012 Water St. from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday in addition to Carlos Roberto Ribeiro’s jewelry.

Fagiolo began his career more than 30 years ago as a commercial photographer in the Washington, D.C., area, moving to Seattle in 1981 to open his own studio serving corporate clients.

His work has been published in National Geographic and Vanity Fair, among other publications. He has been a member of Gallery 9 for more than five years, and his landscapes and still lifes are available in both large- and small-print formats.

Fagiolo and Ribeiro will discuss their work during Art Walk.

Gallery 9 is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visit or call 360-379-8881 for more information.

Other attractions along Port Townsend’s Gallery Walk include:

• Port Townsend Gallery, 715 Water St., will feature Sylvia White’s recent gourd work and Mike Biskup’s paintings.

White has been working with gourds, basketry and recycled materials such as electrical wire, metals, collages and sculptural forms for more than two decades.

White’s gourd work recently won awards at the Western Regional Gourd Show, according to a news release. She also belongs to a Sequim “gourd patch” that meets monthly.

Biskup comes from a family historically rich in artists, poets and dreamers, according to a news release.

In his paintings, colors, lines and shapes and people, places and things are woven into one harmonious functional system, according to the gallery.

Biskup desires to subtly remind viewers that humans are essentially interconnected, and with thoughtfulness can function together harmoniously as well, according to a news release.

“Some of my work has been moving into a more representational, though still heavily imaginary, realm,” Biskup said. “Mostly watercolor and India ink combined, some small and larger pieces.”

His work can be found in the collection of Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette and galleries in Port Townsend and Bainbridge Island.

The Port Townsend Gallery’s hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays to Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

• Northwind Arts Center, 701 Water St., will display Sequim artist R. Evan Miller’s woodwork.

Miller’s artistic endeavors began with woodworking in high school.

That piqued his interest in the automotive arts, specifically restoration, which allowed him to perceive shapes in new ways. Forming body panels and painting cars heavily influenced his ability to create “fair curves,” Miller said in a news release.

After attending the Port Townsend School of Wooden Boatbuilding, he began a career working in the megayacht industry.

Honing his skills in the yacht industry, Miller began to focus on the use of specialty veneers.

“Seeing the high yield value and efficiency using veneer combined with solid wood early on, I targeted my interests there and began to specialize in this medium,” Miller said. “Making art with veneer has opened my mind even further to the seemingly endless possibilities artistically.”

An opening reception also will be held for an exhibit celebrating the humorous and whimsical in art during the Gallery Walk at the Northwind Arts Center.

• Taps at the Guardhouse, 300 Eisenhower Ave., will display Meg Kaczyk’s paintings reflecting “transient reality — from birds to flowers to moving figures,” according to a news release.

Enamored with her newfound “sense of place,” Kaczyk’s recent works are inspired by the lifescapes and natural environment of the Quimper Peninsula.

“Boats are especially inspiring — architecturally, visually and as a metaphor for taking life as it comes,” she said.

She is exhibiting landscapes and portraits at Taps at the Guardhouse in Fort Worden State Park now through December.

Kaczyk decided 10 percent of the proceeds from sales at this exhibition will be donated to the Northwest Straits Foundation to support its work in marine conservation and restoration projects.

An opening reception will be held Saturday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a no-host bar. In addition to the exhibition, Kaczyk will offer small paintings, cards, prints and calendars for sale during this event only. The first 10 attendees will receive a newly released 2018 Meg Kaczyk Art Calendar as a gift of appreciation.
