First Friday Art Walk Sequim
June 2, 5 – 8 p.m.
Various Venues in Sequim WA
June 2 Art Walk color theme is WHITE and the whole visible spectrum! White represents acceptance, open minds, pure and thoughtful actions, friendly impressions, and blank canvases that are receptive to any positive vision. Because white is actually all the colors of the rainbow, multi-color enchantment is in the air with blowing bubbles, the wearing of fairy wings, and spreading glittery pixie dust is encouraged! It is a chance to be magical, shiny, and show off every color!

The gallery currently has 24 artists working with oil, acrylic and watercolor, mixed media, assemblage, photography, fused glass, ceramics, wood sculpture and turning, and jewelry.
The City of Sequim and the City Arts Advisory Commission Reception for “Piecing Together a Changing Planet” exhibition opens at 5:00 PM at the Sequim Civic Center at 152 W. Cedar Street. The display has been touring the country since December 2014. This is the only stop in the Pacific Northwest for the national exhibit and the last stop on the tour. The juried show of 26 art quilts was created by artists in Florida as a way to highlight a few of the many ways that America’s 401 National Parks are being impacted by climate change, water pollution, air pollution, and other human-caused phenomena. Maya Schonenberger, the exhibit curator said, “the artists’ goal is to help open people’s eyes to the beauty of nature that surrounds them, and share their concern for its loss.” The artworks were created by members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), a 3000-member national organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications. Far from utilitarian quilts, traditionally used as bedcoverings, art quilts focus on layering, “thread painting,” and graphic design, as well as stitching and piecing. The exhibit is sponsored by Sequim’s City Arts Advisory Commission (CAAC) in partnership with the Olympic National Park.
The Museum and Arts Center features a solo exhibition of painter and instructor Susan Spar at 175 W. Cedar St.
