The Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley is showcasing the intricate gourd artwork of Sequim artist Sherry Mizuta in November. The exhibit, displayed at the MAC Exhibit Center, 175 W. Cedar St., Sequim, features eight of Mizuta’s carved art gourds of various shapes and sizes.


An artist reception is 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, as part of the brown color-themed First Friday Art Walk Sequim. Mizuta, whose additional artistic endeavors include stained glass and beading, said she began carving gourds about 11 years ago and in that time has created more than 40 pieces.


The North Olympic Fiber Arts Juried Show “Strong Stitches - Friendship, Cooperation & Uniforms” also continues its two-month run at the MAC Exhibit Center in November.


Featuring wide-ranging works of 45 fiber artists from across the Pacific Northwest and beyond, the juried exhibition is a component of the annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival.
