An evening filled with green apparel and hints of spring sprouting, supportive anticipation, revitalized luck, and fresh starts.

Blue Whole Gallery at 129 W Washington St. presents guest artist Mike McCollum, nationally recognized artist and art educator. Artist statement: “This exhibit involves recent wood and resin works consisting of large totems and a series of pyramids. The totems are comprised of different panels of drawings and/or abstract color “paintings.” Several of the totems are lit from inside. The pyramids range in size from desktop to large ones that are best viewed on the floor. A series of tables that have wood and colored resin designed tops will also be on display. This current work demands something from the viewer. The pieces do not answer any questions, they only ask them.” Mike was born in Hoquiam, WA but developed many of his artistic sensibilities from the San Francisco Bay Area and was awarded an individual artist fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1980.
Wind Rose Cellars at 143 W Washington St. has Twisted Roots in the house performing a mixture of tunes from 60s & 70s. Blues, rock, and Americana along with fresh art with award winning artfully crafted wines with appetizing tidbits.
Starting at 6:00 PM, Sequim Branch of the North Olympic Library System at 630 N. Sequim Ave., enjoy a storytelling program by featured artist Richard Jesse Watson and music by Bread and Gravy. Join the artist for an interactive dance of story, art and books with music while he pick ideas from the audience, turn them into quick drawings and create a story together. Bread and Gravy is the husband and wife duo of Stephanie and Jess Doenges. Based on the Olympic Peninsula, their music alternates between powerful rock and soulful blues to smooth bluegrass and good old fashioned Americana. Dynamically diverse and intricately woven, their musical poetry captures the rarest of dichotomies: raw and refined.
Cedarbrook Lavender Shop at 134 1/2 W Washington St. is filled with crafts, smiles, and scents to calm your head and heart.
