Photo project on display at Civic Center

A photographic exhibit portraying favorite story photographs of the Olympic Peninsula by Marina Shipova is on display now through January 2022 in the Karen Kuznek-Reese Gallery at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St.

Civic Center hours are 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday.

The exhibit includes a digital presentation of Shipova’s work on a big screen that can be viewed through the window of the civic center at any time.

Shipova was selected as the Artist Fellow for the Sequim Understory Project, a placemaking program that will result in the design of Centennial Place at the corner of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street. Her work is one of the community engagement components of the project.

Limited copies of her book “The Olympic Peninsula” will be available for purchase for the non-profit price of $25. Cash and checks will be the only accepted form of payment (make out checks to “City of Sequim”).

Any remaining books after Nov. 27 will be available for purchase at the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Visitor Information Center, 192 E. Washington St.

For more about Shipova, visit sequimcityarts.com or contact marketing coordinator Patsene Dashiell at 360-681-3421 or pdashiell@sequimwa.gov.
