October 3 Art Walk Color Theme is ORANGE! Orange is on of the brighter colors in fall as summer fades away. Orange is delightful, sweet, energizing, zesty, and inspires active participation and encouragement. The warm hue of orange reminds us toasty fires, nesting and organizing, seasonal sweaters, friendship made out of admirable interests, delightful sweets, encouraging teachers and mentors. The Ninth Annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival launches during the Art Walk! You will find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in shades of orange or sugar and spice smiles as they enjoy an evening on the town with friends and family.
