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!
