Special Events on February 3:
Karin Anderson, a long-time member of the Blue Whole Gallery, is the featured artist for the month of February at 129 W Washington St. Karin will showcase her mixed media paintings and three dimensional assemblage pieces in the front windows. Her colorful, multifaceted award winning art work has been an inspiration to many. Upon her husband’s retirement this spring, the Andersons will leave the Northwest for Santa Fe, NM. Karin says, “While I’m excited about the future, this show reflects where I’ve been and how far I’ve come as an artist here in this place.”
Lamb Farm Kitchen at 272 W. Bell St, behind the Oak Table, presents Jean Wyatt and her Acrylic Paintings, Colored Pencil Art and Journals are colorful, fun, whimsical, unusual and often a little off-beat.
Singer and artist Priscilla Patterson is performing at Sequim Spice and Tea 139 W Washington St. Along with her paintings, Priscilla is showcasing songs from her new CD “Wonderful World!”
Starting at 6:00 PM, Sequim Branch of the North Olympic Library System at 630 N. Sequim Ave., celebrates the opening of a new “Art in the Library” exhibit featuring the art of Jerry Owie and Allyn Guthrie performs live at 6:30pm.
Wind Rose Cellars at 143 W Washington St. hosts Hot Llamas at local bluegrass/newgrass band from a mixture of musicians from Sequim and Port Angeles and enjoy award winning artfully crafted wines with appetizing tidbits.
Olympic Theatre Arts at 414 N. Sequim Avenue presents Pamela Ziemann’s, “If I Were Me … I’d Know What I Want”, a one-woman show about finding your voice. The one hour show starts promptly at 5:00 PM. Ziemann plays seven different characters, all based on her life. Ziemann is the author of “Giving Voice to Your Cause”, and a 2011 International Book Awards winner for social change. Critics call her show entertaining, authentic, funny, emotional and poignant. A synopsis from Ziemann’s work: ‘A farmer’s daughter reluctantly enters a Dairy Princess Contest while secretly wanting to be at an Alice Cooper Concert. Her life spirals downward when she meets a New York fitness junkie and moves with him to Indonesia. Wanting breathing space, she goes back to her Minnesota farm only to find the land filled with genetically modified seed. Magically, a gnome shows up and hints how she has been modified too. It’s one woman’s 50-year journey as she searches for and finds her voice. This show begs the question Can you tell the truth while living a lie?’
