Welcome!


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!

The first meeting of the year will be in the Parish Hall at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. 5th Ave, Sequim.

We will have a two part program. First will be a short demonstration of the Magic Genie Interchangeable Art display system developed by local framer Leslie Curran. These are frames that allow artists, galleries offices and collectors to easily change out the artwork and saves the expense of custom framing each piece.

Following that we are going to release our inner child and paint rocks. The rocks will be sent to the Seattle Children’s Hospital to help entertain the young patients. The Landing Artist’s Studio hosted a rock painting party this fall. The hospital loved the rocks but those are long gone and they need more.  We will provide pre sealed rocks to paint and Landing Artist’s Studio is providing some paint.  We have a few brushes but if you have extras please bring them.  We will have paper towels, paper plates for paint, table covers and some containers for water. Please help us by painting a rock to hide at the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Visitors are always welcome and our demonstrations are always free. You do not need to be a member. Doors open at 9:30 am for meet and greet, followed by a short business meeting, the demo and rock painting.
