Olympic Driftwood sculptors set show

SEQUIM — The Olympic Driftwood Sculptors will showcase works from several of its 45 members during the First Friday Art Walk at Sequim Museum & Arts, 544 N. Sequim Ave., Sequim.

Beginning at 5 p.m., a meet-the-sculptors reception will be held in the Judith McInnes Tozzer Art Gallery in the museum.

Along with several completed sculptures, club members will have a demonstration table featuring driftwood sculpture art in progress and tools used to coax beauty from the raw wood.

Founded in 2008, with an initial membership of two members, Olympic Driftwood Sculptors is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. In addition to monthly meetings and classes, the group participates in several shows yearly.

During the shows, money raised from the sale of raw driftwood, member-created hand-crafted items and the sale of tickets for the annual driftwood sculpture raffle goes to fund a local scholarship or educational program.

The Olympic Driftwood Sculptors group meets from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the first Wednesday of every month at the Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

Learn more about the club at olympicdriftwood sculptors.org.
