Art in the Library is a program sponsored by the North Olympic Library System, which provides display space for works created by Clallam County artists. Art in the Library exhibits rotate on a regular two or three month schedule. Currently Art in the Library exhibit space is available in the Port Angeles Main Library and the Sequim Branch Library.

The Art in the Library program would not be possible without financial support from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library and the Friends of Sequim Library; the commitment and generous donation of time by volunteer Art in the Library Exhibit Coordinators; and the creativity and community involvement of local artists.

Art in the Library at the Sequim Branch Library

October 6 through January 29

The current Art in the Library exhibit features the silk batik art and oil paintings of Carolyn Doe, and will be on display from October 6 through January 29 at the Sequim Branch Library.

Carolyn Doe, a self–taught artist, has been working in batik on silk for over twenty five years. Silk batik is a technique of hand–dyeing fabrics using a wax resist. More recently, Carolyn has expanded her creative process to include oil painting utilizing the palette knife. She derives her inspiration from the natural landscape, working directly from personal observation.
