Second Saturday venues offer art

PORT ANGELES — The Second Saturday Art Walk will feature art and weaving techniques at venues throughout Port Angeles this weekend.

Studio Bob will present the third annual Bring Your Own Erotic Art Show during the art walk from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Art done by professional and amateur local artists in many different mediums will be on display.

A special performance by The Queer Xhoir will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday.

The BYOEA Show will continue from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.

The event is free. Nice dogs are welcome. The Loom Bar will be open to purchase refreshments.

Work may be for sale; Studio Bob will take no commission.

Cabled Fiber and Yarn, at 125 W. First St., will feature art in the form of knitting by Marca Davies of Port Angeles during the Art Walk from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Davies will be present to talk about her inspiration and passion.

She has gathered skill and experiences from many sources throughout her 61 years of nonstop knitting. From her early work in a Hmong refugee camp in Thailand, she learned knitting from Finnish nurses who introduced her to a speedy method to apply to her Fair Isle projects.

“I have an embarrassing number of patterns in my library and projects in my queue,” said Davies.

“Fair isle knitting is my favorite, but I love variety and so have several projects going at once.”

This is a free event and will be available for viewing only on Saturday evening.

For more information, see www.cabledfiber.com or Facebook.

Harbor Art Gallery at 114 North Laurel St., will be open until 7 p.m. on the Second Saturday Art Walk so that visitors can chat with many of the artists.

This month the cooperative is featuring the art of Nathan Shields of Port Angeles.

The gallery showcases work by local artists Bob Stokes and Cindy Elstrom, Carolyn Guske, Robert Amaral, Kelly Coffey, Garret Delabarre, Terri Ench, Tammy Hall, David Johannessohn, Susan Kantowitz, Ruth Kaspin, Nancy McFaul, Gail McLain, Roger Mosley, Eric Neurath, Randy and Sallie Raddock, Jodi Riverstone, Shields, Lance and Haley Snider, Eileen Webb and Kevin Willson.
