In celebration of the New Year, the Blue Whole Gallery presents a group show titled “Back to Basics: Black and White” at 129 W Washington St. Curated by Nancy Lawrence and Karin Anderson, this show reveals the challenge presented when limiting the palette. The bold graphic punch of black and white that stimulates and sharpens the mind is modified by soft tones of grey, which lull one into a reflective meditative mood. This dichotomy asks, what is going on here.
The Sequim Museum & Arts at 175 West Cedar St. has shiny motorcycles with artworks by Skip Kratzer, including a motorcycle that he skillfully pinstriped.
The City of Sequim and the City Arts Advisory Commission Reception for “Fused, Stained and Fired…all things glass” exhibition opens at 5:00 PM at the Sequim Civic Center at 152 W. Cedar Street. This exhibition includes demonstrations by Millie Harrell with an informal class on her stained glass process at 5:00, Lizbeth Harper will show the four stages a piece of glass goes through from raw glass to finished design at 5:30, and Joanna Hays will demonstrate her process for creating glass beads at 6:00.

 

Olympic Theatre Arts at 414 N Sequim Ave. hosts Twelfth Night Revelry a staged reading of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (Or What You Will). You can join the entertainment if you wish and dress the part for a romping Renaissance Reading of the Bard on at 7:00 PM.
We are sorry to say that the “Whodunnit Downtown?” event will not be held this January 6, 2017.  There were some details that we weren’t able to work out in time to pull the event together this year, but we are hopeful to revive it in 2018. Thank you for your amazing support of this fun community event during the First Friday Art Walk Sequim! More mysteries to come for sure!

“Whodunnit Downtown?” It was Pirate Peggy Preston! That’s who traveled back in time and stole Captain C.R. Silverbeard’s Chrome Key for his silver treasure chest to help her cousin! She was the red lipstick wearing student of Professor Hattie Hallmark. That pair of heirloom earrings from her distant cousin let her go through the Wells’ time portal and bring pirates to Sequim.

Kelly Olson of Sequim picked her and won the big prize! Thank you everyone for playing tonight!

Silver Themed First Friday Art Walk Sequim and “Whodunnit Downtown?” – The Case of the Chrome Key Mystery Game on January 8, 2016

Collect the clues about the suspects who have fallen through time travel gateways to solve the Mystery Game “Whodunnit Downtown? – The Case of the Chrome Key” on January 8, 2016 during the Sequim Art Walk. Due to the First Friday Art Walk Sequim falling on New Year’s Day, the Art Walk has been shifted to January 8 for this month only.

The story is in 1946, the Atomic Age emerged and by chance temporal portals through time and alternative universes opened in Sequim. Pirate Captain C. R. Silverbeard’s locked silver chest was found in a farmhouse overlooking the City of Sequim and Strait of Juan De Fuca. The chest from the past became a shiny curio on display at a local spice and tea shop. The treasure chest can only be opened by Silverbeard’s Chrome Key stolen from him in 1776. Treasure hunting adventurers and pirates from the present, past, and Neo-Victorian times will gather in Sequim this January 8th evening to reveal who stole the Chrome Key that unlocks this pirate plunder.

Adventure around the Art Walk venues to mingle with the suspects in our mystery game and discover why they might have Captain C. R. Silverbeard’s Chrome Key starting at 5 PM. You can solve this crime that crosses time and space. Fill out your game card, enter it at Sequim Spice and Tea at 121 W Washington St., and be part of the prize drawing for the correct answer at 7:30 PM. The first game card with the correct answer wins the big prize of treasured and educational experiences including a Seaview Vacation Rental Stay from Cedarbrook Lavender and Herb Farm. Visitors and sleuths to the Sequim Art Walk are encouraged to dress in our themed colors of silver, black, and white, as well as, in 40’s era, steampunk, or in pirate garb. It is not required, but dressing up makes the evening more fun and festive.

The Sequim-Dungness Valley Chamber Merchant Group and First Friday Art Walk Sequim Presents this fun-filled evening as we step back in time into the 1940’s and search for the answer to the question, “Whodunnit Downtown?”
