The Event The Second Weekend Art Event is the brainchild of multimedia artist Bob Stokes, and features a monthly art showcase on Friday evening in Stokes’ downtown studio loft and more than 10 participating art galleries. All members of the public are invited to enjoy the varied art displays, as well as sample the wine, refreshments, and hors d’oeuvres. Then, on Saturday, a guided walking tour of outdoor public sculpture in the downtown Port Angeles area is held monthly. The 2 nd Friday Art Rock (2FAR) was created by local musicians Dan Lieberman and Paul Stehr-Green to introduce the element of music as a complementary feature of the Port Angeles Second Weekend Art Event. Each month, 2FAR features local musicians and local artists who invite everyone to participate in a celebration of music, dance, and art at Bar N9NE (229 West 1st Street, Port Angeles) immediately following the art gallery shows. The artist-in-residence Born and raised in Colombia, South America to a family of healers, musicians, and artists, Beatriz Giraldo integrated her love of art and the art of healing at an early age. Bridging cultures, Beatriz brought her medicine bag full of holistic healing methods to North America. She is a Mental Health Occupational Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Group Facilitator currently working as a Mental Health Counselor in Healthy Families of Clallam County. In October 2008, Beatriz began hosting and facilitating community drum circles in Port Angeles at the Peninsula College Longhouse. Among her favorite hobbies are photography and painting nature. She has said: “When Mother Earth manifests her beauty to my camera, then I want to paint it.” Her show includes photographs from travels in China, Costa Rica, United States, Europe, and her homeland in South America. “You may see some pictures of horses,” Beatriz said, “because horses, like Art, inspire vision. They remind us of beauty, synchronicity, connection, love and movement.” For a better look at Baetriz’ work, visit: http://www.tinyurl.com/beatrizgiraldo. The musical artists The Latin Jazz group Tanga plays a potent blend of jazz and funk music, powered by the rhythms of the Caribbean and Brazil. The band’s name—Tanga—comes from a variety of sources: most importantly, it is the name of the first Latin Jazz tune ever recorded (Mario Bauza composed the tune in 1943 for Machito’s Afro-Cuban All Stars in New York City); it’s also the name of the skimpy bikini bottoms worn by women of Brazil as they stroll the sunny beaches of Rio de Janeiro (the name for a ‘tanga’ in Brazil is ‘fio dental’, literally translated as ‘dental floss’). Members of Tanga include: Ed Donohue (trumpet and flugelhorn), Jim Rosand (keyboards and keyboard bass), Kevin MacCartney (sax, flute, congas, and EWI – electric wind instrument), and Tom Svornich (drums). The core of this band has played together for almost ten years now, and they were recently featured at the 2010 Lavender Festival in Sequim, the 2010 Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival in Port Angeles, and the recent Afro-Latin Dance Party at Peninsula College.
