Sequim is golden during The First Friday Art Walk Sequim, 5-8 p.m. Dec. 7. Gold is the theme color for December’s walk, the color of the returning sun at Solstice and a statement color for artists and art walkers alike as the town opens for strolling, gazing, music, noshing and perhaps some artistic gift shopping.

Art exhibits and other attractions of the art walk are listed below. For a full map, see The art walk is sponsored and produced by unique as you/Renne Emiko Brock-Richmond. (See
