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.
Co-curated by Sarah Jane & Ginny Holladay, the new exhibit Obsessed: The Art of Nerdom will be on display at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and the Port Angeles Main Library from January 11 through March 15. Reclaiming the once-perjorative term “nerd” to mean anyone who obsesses over created content, the exhibit takes a glimpse into the artistic side of nerd culture and our innate desire to expand upon the creative content we love. With artwork ranging from literary illustration to comics to game design, this exhibit celebrates the irrepressible creativity and playfulness of nerd culture in the Northwest.
The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is located at 1203 E. Lauridsen Boulevard. The PAFAC gallery is free by donation and open 10am-4pm Thursday through Sunday.
The exhibit generously supported by the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, Anime Kat, D.A. Davidson, Camaraderie Cellars and the City of Port Angeles.
The current Art in the Library Ocean Arts exhibit features the work of several local artists and will be on display through January 30.
Featured artists include Anna Blanchard, Eva Kozun, Greg MacDonald, Janet Flatley, Jordan Huber, Judy Larimore, Ken Kennedy, Melinda Jane Reed, Michelle Gould, Sandy Placek, Sandy Wolf, Susan McDougall, Suzan Noyes, and Tom Blanchard.
Art in the Library is generously funded by the Friends of Sequim Library.
