Art in the Library at the Port Angeles Main Library
In a continuing celebration of the Wilderness Act’s 50th anniversary, NOLS challenged local artists of all ages, abilities, and perspectives to submit
original work that contemplates, celebrates, or reimagines this historic piece of legislation and the vast expanses of nature it protects. More than
15 artists responded with a variety of work that includes paintings, photographs, quilts, knit pieces and jewelry. The fall Art in the Library exhibit will be
on display at the Port Angeles Main Library between October 10 and January 5.
Art in the Library is a collaborative library-community project featuring rotating exhibits by local artists. The program has been made possible by generous contributions from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, and also by the efforts of volunteer art coordinator Diane Williams.
Art in the Library at Sequim Branch Library
Sequim December—February Artist: Bridget Baker
Bridget Baker’s abstract art, on view inside the library throughout December, January and February, is created primarily with acrylic paint. Although she’s always been creative, Baker began painting two years ago and is mostly self-taught. First drawn to collage work, she quickly fell in love with the acrylic process. Her newest work often mixes media to take advantage of the creative potential in each approach.
Born and raised in the Midwest, Baker spent almost 15 years living below the Mason-Dixon Line, mainly in New Orleans and elsewhere along the Gulf Coast. She lived overseas for three years before retiring to the Olympic Peninsula. In her work you will see influences of the endless prairie sky found in the Midwest and the multicultural influences of the Deep South, as well as the natural beauty of her adopted home in Sequim.
