Textile art and the many different ways it is created will be described by three Olympic Peninsula artists at the opening reception for the new Field Arts & Events Hall Gallery exhibit, “Colors of Nature.” The reception and artists introduction will take place in Field Hall’s Pat Donlin lobby on Tuesday, May 28 at 5PM. A complimentary flavored water station will be provided; additional food and drink available for purchase through the Beth & Cappy Rothman Bar. 

Sequim art quilter Kathie Cook, 3D fiber and bead artist Pat Herkal, and mixed-media fiber artist Debra E. Olson (both of Port Townsend) will describe their work and answer audience questions. The artists will also introduce the art quilts, mixed-media collages, jewelry, wearable art, textile sculptures, and the hand-woven and hand-felted pieces that are among the 70-plus pieces being displayed by 28 Olympic and Kitsap peninsula artists in “Colors of Nature” on display through Aug. 3.
