Art Walk on the second Saturday offers variety


PORT ANGELES — Mixed media artwork, pottery and fiber art will be on display during the Second Saturday Art Walk.

Studio Bob is hosting an exhibition sponsored by Cabled Yarn & Fiber from Saturday through October 1st.

The non-juried exhibition at the gallery, 118½ E. Front St., is an extension of the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival, held annually in Sequim beginning in October.

The exhibition at Studio Bob’s gallery is open on Saturday from 5pm to 8pm and on Sunday from 12pm to 3pm when artists will be giving live demonstrations.

“We define fiber art very loosely,” said MarySue French, one of the organizers of the event. “In years past we have had a broad mix of artwork including spinning, felting, weaving, quilting, painted silk, knitting, crocheting, costumes, fiber painting, fiber sculpture, needled, braided and woven rugs, hats, jewelry and some driftwood art. “

The Harbor Art Gallery at 114 N. Laurel St. is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and visitors can mingle with September’s featured artist, Jodi Riverstone, and others exhibiting at the co-op.

Through the use of acrylic, Riverstone uses acrylic and mixed media to convey her interpretations of regional landscapes.

Some of her works evoke the soulful tone of the poetry and prose she writes that is sometimes seen in the image.

“I’ve recently found myself drawn to writing poetry or prose when I’m thinking about a subject, and it’s been fun to see how the written work then also influences the visual arts that emerge from that process,” Riverstone said .

During normal opening hours, the gallery is open until 4 p.m

It also features work by local artists Bob Stokes and Cindy Elstrom, Carolyn Guske, Robert Amaral, Kelly Coffey, Garret Delabarre, Terri Ench, Tammy Hall, David Johannessohn, Susan Kantowitz, Ruth Kaspin, Nancy McFaul, Gail McLain, Roger Mosley, Eric Neurath, Randy and Sallie Radock, Nathan Shields, Lance and Haley Snider, Eileen Webb and Kevin Willson.

The One of a Kind Art Gallery at 115 E. Railroad Ave. is hosting an evening with Brian and Wendy Fuller, founders of Fairview Lake Studios, during the Second Saturday Art Walk from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m

The functional art ceramics created by the two will be on display at the gallery this month.

They named their pottery business, which started in 2017, after their first small home studio, which they started while living on Fairview Lake in Port Orchard.

Since the couple’s inception, they have traveled the region, attending arts festivals and fairs.

Her son and his partner recently joined the family business as trainees to further expand.

All of their pieces are completely handmade, one-of-a-kind, and contain unique variations of patterns and colors.

Items are made from stoneware clay and glazes that are lead-free and food, microwave and dishwasher safe.
