Charcoal artist in spotlight at Harbor Art Gallery

PORT ANGELES — Harbor Art Gallery is featuring charcoal artist Lance Snider for the months of March and April.

Snider will be at the gallery at 114 N. Laurel St., greet visitors Thursday, March 11, and Thursday, April 8.

The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Social distancing and masks are required.

Snider said he has been obsessed with art for as long as he can remember. A Bellingham native, he split 15 years between Northern California and Utah, and was “thrilled” to move back to the Pacific Northwest with his wife a year ago.

As a youth, his art was heavily influenced by the “Where’s Waldo” and “Incredible Cross Sections” books, and he’d often create giant scenes full of tiny characters.

Though his reading tastes have matured a little, Snider said he’s still making art filled with little people who have taken on “a vaguely creepy/mysterious vibe.”

Snider’s art often includes his favorite animals, particularly pachyderms and cephalopods. He’s also very drawn to people, and “the stories behind their eyes.”

Though he dabbles in various medium, charcoal is his favorite, with pen and watercolor a close second.

A giant pumpkin contest is conducted each year at the Evergreen Country Estates neighborhood on Goss Road south of Port Angeles. Welden, who started the contest 14 years ago, gives each of his neighbors special pumpkin sprouts he has started from seeds from the Northwest Giant Pumpkin Growers Association. The growing season starts around May 1 and the neighbors gather for a weigh-in and to have a pumpkin potluck party this time of year. Only one pumpkin weighed more than 100 pounds out of the dozen entries. (Dave Logan/For Peninsula Daily News)
