College talk on Friday to showcase artwork

PORT ANGELES — “Blind Luck” is the name of the public art show open through Friday at the PUB Art Gallery at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

The gallery, in fact a hallway outside the Little Theater, is lined with 11 large, vivid images by Suzanne Lamon and husband Frank Samuelson of Port Hadlock.

The pair are known for public art installations and shows across the West and have assembled a show of paintings inspired by life on the Olympic Peninsula, in Eastern Washington and the Idaho panhandle.

Together, they will give a free talk on their art and life here at 1 p.m. Friday in the Little Theater.

As Friday is the last day of the display, the artists also invite visitors to stay for a reception at 2 p.m.

“Blind Luck” refers to “Suzanne and I getting together after many years apart,” Samuelson said when asked to explain the title.

“If you want to view some colorful paintings that will most likely brighten your day — or night, they’re open till 8 p.m. — come by,” he added.

The art gallery is open during the same hours as the adjacent PUB cafeteria, from 7:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Admission is free to the gallery.
