Dale Faulstich carving a totem pole.

In the council chambers at 5:15 PM, Dale Faustich: “A Behind the Scenes Look at Making Sequim’s Totem Pole”. Dale Faulstich is an artist and woodcarver. Living near Sequim, Washington since 1972, his long career began with painting canvases and watercolors, and later branched into commercial art. Many of his signs have enhanced businesses around the Sequim and Port Angeles areas. His sign business led to collaboration with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, and a unique opportunity arose to create carvings for their various enterprises. Dale became fascinated with the rich culture of the Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest. Though he is a non-native, he has immersed himself in learning about Northwest Coast Native American art, traditions, and legends. This knowledge has enabled him to convert many stories and important figures into monumental totem poles, masks, wall panels, boxes, and other objects. His relationship with the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe has flourished, with more than 62 hand-carved totem poles completed. Dale continues to be captivated by this sophisticated art form, and is always looking forward to what the next red cedar log will reveal.

Blue Whole Gallery at 129 W Washington St. presents “All Creatures Great and Small” with fiber artist are Terri Biondolino and “Bright and Beautiful” with jewelers Macaria Patapoff and Kathy Schreiner in the front windows. Terri was practically born with a love of textiles, having had two grandmothers who were accomplished seamstresses and she’s done the gamut: spinning, quilting, crewel, sewing, knitting, weaving and crocheting, painting, drawing, sewing. But, she gave it all up for needle felting because it’s the ultimate medium and art form with no limits other than imagination, patience and determination. Macaria crafts wearable pieces of art for people ambitiously strive to be unique. The exclusive, one of kind necklaces, rings and bracelets that she creates convey her command and artistic revolution into the art of silversmithing. As a member of the Clallam County Gem & Mineral Association, Kathy learned lapidary skills in addition to wire wrapping and metalsmithing which enabled me to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from the rocks and sea glass she collected. Sea glass has been described as Mother Nature’s vanishing gems.

“If I Were Me … I’d Know What I Want” by Pamela Ziemann

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?’
