Art in the Library at the Sequim Branch Library

Salmon for One by Genny LangworthyThe new Art in the Library exhibit features the photography of Genny Langworthy, and will be on display from February 2 through May 29 at the Sequim Branch Library.

Genny Langworthy is an adventurer, photographer, and owner of Western Breeze Photography who often calls a kayak her office. Langworthy shoots mostly landscapes and seascapes, and many of the images are shot from water level in her trusty kayak. Her pieces capture the natural splendor of British Columbia, Western Washington, Quebec, Cape Breton and mainland Nova Scotia, as well as Newfoundland Labrador. All of Langworth’s pieces are custom-framed by her and, as such, the framing is part of the artistry.

Images shot from a kayak by photographer and adventurer Genny Langworthy create a panorama of the rugged, beautiful, and often treacherous coastline of Newfoundland, Labrador, and the Pacific Northwest. She presents a visual journey of the most magnificent sights, from the unique perspective of a sea kayaker.

Pamela Hastings PortraitThe current Art in the Library exhibit features the work of Pamela Hastings, and will be on display from June 1 through October 1 at the Sequim Branch Library.

Pamela Hastings is a sculptor, painter, writer, and teacher. She has exhibited her mixed media sculptures and taught via the internet all over the world. Especially known for her work with life-change via doll making, her book, Doll Making as a Transformative Process, is used in art therapy courses in the US and Australia. Teaching mixed media construction and gently unlocking personal creativity is a specialty.

Pamela’s work has appeared in numerous books, including Lark’s books: 500 Handmade Dolls, Fiberarts Design Book IV and VI, 3 of Susanna Oroyan’s books, Who’s Your Dada, and five of her own books. See more on her website and in her print-on-demand and e-books available on Amazon.
