On Friday, June 6, the Sequim Library will be part of Sequim’s First Friday Art Walk when it features fractal artist Pam Dick at an after-hours reception from 6-7:30 p.m.

The artist’s work will be on display, light refreshments will be served and live music will be performed. Limited library services will be available during the reception.

Dick began her digital art career 10 years ago with 3-D rendering of fantasy characters.

“I have always been fascinated with science and technology,” she said. “One year, I received a calendar for Christmas that had a year in fractals. I was hooked after February and sought out the method to create these images. When I saw the complicated program I figured I was too old to be revisiting my math education, but I pushed on.”

The Art in the Library reception also will feature Young Fiddlers, led by Kate Powers, age 14, who took first place in the Port Angeles Symphony’s 2013 Junior Young Artists Competition. The group also includes fiddlers David and Alex Tormala with Philip Powers, Ethan Powers on guitar and Phebe Powers on spoons. They are joined by adult musicians Kristina Tormala on bass, Don Betts and Chris Burt on guitar and Bill Woods on bohdran.

Art in the Library is a collaborative library/community art project featuring rotating exhibits by local artists. The program has been made possible by contributions from the Friends of Sequim Library and also by the efforts of volunteer art coordinator Randy Radock. Dick’s fractal images will remain on display at the library through the end of August.

The Sequim Library is at 630 N. Sequim Ave. in Sequim. For more information, contact Sequim Library staff at 683-1161 or Sequim@nols.org, or go to www.nols.org.
