Giraffs in the Paintbox

Please join the City Arts Advisory Commission (CAAC) for the opening of the “Tie One On” exhibit and artist reception on Friday, October 4, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar Street.

The jury reviewed 55 entries from 30 artists before selecting 36 entries for the exhibit.  The artists represented are:  Lora Armstrong, Nancy Booth, Jane Burkey, Jeannine Chappell, Patrick Clark, Sharon DelaBarre, Leslie Dickson, Penny Dorothy, Marilynn Evans, Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry, Cindy Fullwiler, Fumie Gage, Anne Grasteit, Eva Kozun, Ernie Kozun, Allyne Lawson, Melissa Mann, Bob Martinson, Debra Olson, Priscilla Patterson, Marcedes Perry-Baar, Susan Schneider, Gloria Skovronsky, Ryoko Toyama, and Sandy Wolf.

The exhibit will be on display until December 18, 2019.

Art Talk on the Art Walk:  From 5:00pm to 5:30pm, organizer, Cherry Bibler, will give an overview of the Olympic Peninsula Wearable Art Show planned for August 1, 2020 at the Sequim Boys and Girls Club.  This will be a gala fashion show featuring original designs created by talented artists, seamstresses, or fashionistas.  The show will celebrate creativity, encourage recycling, support youth interest and include entries from a variety of niches.  Having a long background in sewing as a hobby, Cherry immediately became interested in participating as an artist in the initial Wearable Arts Show in Port Townsend.  She convinced two of her sisters to team up and create their first entry in the 2017 show, Aluminations.  Their piece took Best in Show!  The resulting bonding and creative fulfillment was powerful and spurred the team on to another entry called Trashy is Classy in 2018.  

Cherry and a small but powerful volunteer group are now spearheading the debut of an Olympic Peninsula Wearable Art Show to benefit the Boys and Girls Club.  

Open Jam:  Come join us at the City of Sequim Civic Center on October 4, 2019 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm during the First Friday Artwalk for an Open Jam presented by the City Arts Advisory Commission.  

This is not an Open Mic event but a True Jam meaning that we will all be playing the same song as a group.  The music with lyrics and chords will be provided. Any acoustical instruments are welcome, and if nothing else, bring your voice and a tambourine.  Don’t miss this informal gathering of people who like to make music!
