“Baby It’s Cold Outside”

This October, Blue Whole Gallery is partnering with the Olympic Community Action Program (OlyCAP) to support its Sequim Warming Center.  Our artists recognize the need to support this worthwhile effort to provide a safe and warm environment for the people unhoused in our Warming community or those outside during extreme cold weather events.  By recognizing the Sequim Center, the Blue Whole artists hope to bring awareness and understanding to their mission.

Proceeds from the sale of select artwork throughout the month of October will be donated to support the Olympic Community Action Program’s Sequim Warming Center

George and the Ducks

As I was researching sculptural ideas, I was inspired by artists who created whimsical woodland creatures.  I like to incorporate cartoon styles to my art.  So I combine the ideas that I found with my love for little yellow duckies, the first installment to this set was George, the duck with the blue hat.  From there forth, I created assigned projects for th ceramics class with the Ducky theme.


Our friend and fellow member of Blue whole Gallery is missing.  Please pass this on anywhere you can.












Writers Read
October 11, 2-3 Pm
This month’s Writers Read will feature five students of a series of poetry workshops mentored by John Victor Anderson, a teacher at Peninsula College. The five authors are Dianne Knox, Joan Enoch, Ruth Marcus, Judy Duncan and Linda Myers. All have spoken at Blue Whole before; all have viewpoints on using workshop lessons in our poems. Each will read several works from the class. Sound stuffy? It’s anything but!
