On January 1st 2016, Sequim Arts became the Olympic Peninsula Art Association.

The name change reflects the organization’s commitment to serving all visual artists on the Olympic Peninsula.  We look forward to learning from and sharing art with an even broader group of like minded folks.

Please join us for our monthly art talks, or an art event!

IMG_1567 IMG_1616 IMG_1657Sherry Nagel retired from banking in 2008 and moved back to the Northwest. She has spent much of her retirement enjoying her arts and crafts as well as serving on the SARC board of directors. In addition to joining OPPA/Sequim Arts, Sherry is very active in Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club and their art quilt group. In 2014, she organized a group of seven talented art quilters, who worked collaboratively to create their first quilt. To their great surprise and delight, their Klimt Nouveau was voted Best of Show in the Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club quilt show in July.

IMG_1656IIMG_0883n addition to quilting, Sherry dabbles in mixed media fiber arts.  She has shown her work in OPPA/Sequim Arts juried shows and in the Northwest Fiber Arts Festival. She has taken workshops at the NW Arts Institute in Coupeville and at the Alegre Retreat in Gateway, Colorado. She loves to share what she has learned and how she incorporates what she learns into her work.

Sherry will be sharing a new hybrid art form, combining acrylic painted canvas, fabric and stamping. The pieces are cut apart and stitched back together, creating unique pieces of art.
